This is uninhabited island with great snorkeling. An excellent way to spend the day! Beautiful beach.
Sandy Island is a short boat ride and offers good snorkeling and scuba. Enjoyed having the island to ourselves for most of the day and loved walking the beach to collect shells and other interesting items e.g. drift wood and sea glass. The are is a protected marine park so there is a nominal fee to scuba that is collected... More
Just off the Isle of Reefs, Carriacou , lies a small slice of sand and palm trees....Sandy Island. Situated in a Marine Protected area, you might just sea a turtle and schools of magical jewel toned fish as you snorkel just a few feet from shore. Just ask anyone in Carriacou where to find a water taxi and you will... More
Sailed around rather than landed on this time. Reason being it has eroded significantly i.e. vegetation and palm trees - too many tourists.

Across the way from Hillsborough, Carriacou, this island is gorgeous. We had heard the snorkeling was really good there, so my family was excited to check it out. At first were disappointed, but we found the jackpot at one end of the island (wish I knew what direction to say....if you're facing the island from Hillsborough, it's the far right... More
We visited Sandy Island at about 10am and it was brilliant. We had the whole island to ourselves for the next four hours until a boatload of American tourists turned up.
