The park encompasses many islands and includes several marinas and many anchorages. Several islands are private, but many more are open for you exploration. Nearly every island has at least one great snorkel spot. Warderick Wells has some interesting hikes. Shroud Cay has an interesting dinghy excursion through the mangroves and a spectacular beach (stunning, breathtaking, everyone in unison: "Wow").

We found many great places to snorkel. Some of the best diving spots are marked and anchorage for boats is provided. Lots of deserted beaches to stroll.

12 of us recently experienced a scuba diving live-aboard trip on catamaran Cat Ppalu operated by the Blackbeard Cruises Co. The crew (Capt. Sam, DM Emma, Cook Anre, and Engineer Chris) were all professional, charming, and exceedingly accommodating. They did a great job of ensuring every whim was met and that everyone on board had a great time! My perfect... More

Couldn't be more awesome. Snorkeling the grotto and the raw beauty you see is the best part. Amazing. SO WORTH IT.

Once in a life time experience. No other activity can compare to this day trip. Never before I had seen stingray and sharks from a close up. Paradise is there!!

We loved everything about the day, the water and the sights. We will do this again on our next visit to Sandals.
