Snorkeling just ho-hum at best. Literally a sandy piece of earth in the middle of the water. Nothing but a shack and a captive audience to over charge.

We had a great day on the island. Food was lovely, drinks were good, and the staff were so friendly and helpful, particularly Dion and Jo Jo. We were the only 2 on the island for most of the day. The trip out was fun. We were staying in St Martin and went to Anguilla on a day trip specifically... More

Came here on a catamaran with a group of people. The crew from the cat said we had a beautiful clear day as the water is usually cloudy. Getting there in the dingy wasn't my favorite way to arrive but it worked out ok. The food was INCREDIBLE. The chicken was cooked perfectly, the pasta, coleslaw and rice were amazing.... More

This island is a short boat ride from Sandy ground (they have a boat that will take you for a small fee). The island is small but it is all beach! You can rent chairs on the sand, go snorkeling, have lunch and enjoy cocktails on the beach or under cover in the restaurant. They have a full bar and... More

Little island paradise just a short boat ride from mainland Sandy Ground. Gentle seas surround fabulous reefs abundant with fish. Great little restaurant for lunches and island cocktails, fab white sand and always sun! A don't miss spot. I have spotted turtle nest hatching on this island.

This place is incredible. The staff couldn't be friendlier. The food is great! We tried all of the drinks and they work lol We had the best time here. The food was better than we would have ever expected to such a casual operation. When Dion and the crew (Bernard, JoJo, Derrick, and Chef Berry) show up, they set up... More

I can't even begin to tell you all the stories I have had on this amazing little island off the coast of Anguilla! I used to live in Anguilla and even though most people don't do the "touristy" things close to where they live, I went here all the time. The employees were and are my family away from family....

If you want to experience an island surrounded by water to play and sun the day away this place is it. You can only get there by boat and you can stand in the middle and turn in a circle and see water on all sides. There's a restaurant which serves great lobster as well as other things. There are...

We went there trying to find a good spot for snorkelling in Anguilla, what is not easy task to do comparing to other places in Caribe. The snorkellig was not good (thousands of dead corals, we heard was caused by a hurricaine in the 90s), some fishes but nothing special. What surprised us is the quality of the food served.... More
