As small deserted islands go, they don't look much better than this one. We stopped off here for a snorkel afternoon coming by Curtis' water taxi from Paradise Beach. Water was clear blue and perfect. Could do with some trash cans on the island and someone coming buy to collect/pick up trash and dead foiliage (would be 5 stars if... More

When driving by on the main road and seeing this sliver of brilliantly white sand punctuated with dozens of swaying palms, there is an irresistible pull to visit. Walking from my accommodation, I took a small road to the beach facing Sandy Island and made a deal with a (stoned) Rastafarian to rent a kayak for the afternoon. I paddled... More

Several boat tour operators use this small offshore island for lunch or barbecue breaks. The former estate house is a ruined shell but quite interesting to explore. The beaches are superb - you cold create your own Robinson Crusoe fantasy. Scuba enthusiasts will enjoy the waters and marine wild life. Depending on the tide and wind, the crossing can sometimes...

This is well worth visiting. Take a bus to Paradise Beach, $3.50 EC each from Hillsborough. The Number 10 bus leaves Hillsborough from the bus station behind Ade's Dream Guesthouse. The Hard Wood Bar at Paradise Beach has a boat which will take you to Sandy Island for $40 EC each, return. We spent two hours here, but I'd have... More

Great place to Relax and Enjoy! Quite a rough boat ride to get there - not for the timid - but worth it for those who do.
