Sandy Island is a really beautiful small island with a snow-white beach and nice little palms. Although there is a placard with a warning by government, you find littering even on this small piece of paradise unfortunately. The snorkling around the island is nice but nothing very special. The current is very strong here so please remember to have a... More

A great day for doing nothing but relaxing. Best in your own vessel but can be taken there from Carriacou.

We went via Joy's water taxi from the Hardwood bar on paradise beach & rented snorkel gear there too. The best time to go is early morning before too crowded & too hot as no shade. We had the whole island to ourselves most of the time. The snorkelling is very good but beware of the currents as very deserted.... More

Curtis, who owns Off the Hook Bar on Paradise Beach, took me to Sandy Island in his boat and rented me snorkeling gear for a very reasonable fee. I went on a Wednesday morning and stayed for about 3 hours. It is absolutely pristine, and you may be the only person there! The water is clear and warm, and I... More

We spent two hours here snorkeling and enjoying the beach, it was wonderful, the snorkeling was even better than I expected it to be, definitely a must do! We grabbed a water taxi at Paradise for 35 EC, round trip, each, it is just a 5-minute ride so very quick!

Sandy island is a short hop across the sea from Paradise Beach and well worth the trip if you like snorkelling. We took a picnic and were quickly joined by a family of crabs who then invited the whole neighbourhood. They only wanted a few crumbs and it was fascinating watching them all, pretty harmless and once we moved away... More

You must go here with Allison and Kershawn. Time spent here was great. Turquoise, warm waters and sandy beach. Food prepared for us on the beach was fantastic. Definitely a desert island paradise.

Reached from Hard Wood cafe by boat for EC$70 for two return. The water at the north end drops to 15-29 ft within 20 ft from the beach, and the coral heads teem with fish. Good times are just before sunset when there are more fish about. Take water to drink at any other time. Highlight was seeing an eagle... More
