A group of us spent the day there on a recent Saturday. It's a great day trip, complete with a beautiful beach, amazing snorkeling, lounge chairs and umbrella, a fabulous "shack" restaurant, and probably the best pina colada you'll ever have in your life. And, if your lucky, a band will be playing to add to the atmosphere. I travel... More

Had a great day on Sandy Island, and the reef surrounding the beach provided the best snorkeling we found anywhere on Anguilla...Showed up on the little pier in front of Jonnos about 10 AM and were on the first boat out after the "supply boat" went out, about 10:15...$10 each round trip, and we were able to add that to...

Great location and food was very good. It is very expensive day though so be prepared. The boat trip cost, using the lounge chairs cost you and the food prices were very high but the food was good.

We decided to grab a taxi to Sandy Ground from our resort (Viceroy) and take the quick boat ride from Sandy Ground to Sandy Island. What a fun experience! You must realize this is not a rushed thing. If you order food it will take awhile, but it is well worth the experience! Loved the fresh grilled lobster, mahi mahi... More

A perfect beach spot and the lobster was outstanding. Loved the curry sauce. It could have been a little less windy.

Take the ferry "Joy" (actually a good-sized speedboat) from Sandy Ground to this small island and settle in for a relaxing time. About 500 yards long (or less), the island has some covered eating/drinking areas; nice restroom facilities and space to stretch out on the beach. Have Bernard set up an umbrella for you on your rented chaise lounge (not... More

After a fishing trip we stopped off and tried the snorkeling here and it was quite nice. Their is effectively a reef around one side of the island so their is only one way in. The island itself is nice and perfect for a picnic although well populated with day trippers

We made Sandy Island the last full-day activity we partook in before coming back home. Sadly, it made it that much harder to leave paradise. We drove to Sandy Ground Beach (think it cost about $10 or so) and it's about a 15-minute boat ride. It is picturesque and beautiful!! Once there, there's not much to do other than relax,... More

I went just for a few hours to enjoy the Island wich is very small but pretty at the same time, they offer local Anguillian and tasty food, I had the coconut shrimp with curry and the mahi mahi with garlic. The service provided by Deon, Judith and Simone was great, very attentive and friendly staff. Highly recommended place if... More

We spent a few hours on this idyllic,little island today, a fifteen minute boat ride from lovely Sandy Ground. It couldn't look more like the perfect dream destination: powder sand beaches, a few palms, not many people, very smiley friendly staff, turquoise sea, and the food and piña coladas were terrific. A delightful few hours, however, were spoilt a little... More
