As your boat pulls up to the tiny spit of sand and you see the "restaurant", you may giggle to yourself. Let me tell you, the food as great, the drinks are strong, and you better have brought plenty of cash. If you're out and about on your boat, stop in, it's worth it. The friendly atmosphere is only bested... More

This restaurant serves the best rum punches in all of the Caribbean! The service is excellent and the food is good. You can rent beach chairs & umbrellas too. Ask for Bernard, he was so helpful!

Catch the 10 a.m. boat and ride out with the staff to beat the other snorkelers and have some fun with the crew. Great rum punch and food. A real unusual tiny island. We went there two days in a row!

It's fun to have lunch on this island, but when it came to buying our sodas they told us they couldn't make change for our $20 bill on a $7 purchase. They suggested we purchase $20 in drinks instead. They also wouldn't accept visa unless you spent $50. Hmmmm

Sandy island is a wonderful place. It's like having your own little island. The staff is very friendly and nice. Excellent service. Food is very good too.

What a way to celebrate a special occasion! I think it is a couples or friends spot... Not kiddies. Good food pricey but good! Bring your own drinks for extra drinking on the island. FUN!

The island is beautiful and the boat ride is awesome. But once you get to the island the prices will surprise you. Everything is expensive and the appetizers are microscopic. I don't know if I would return once more. Be sure to check your tab closely when paying.

We had group of 20 for lunch. We pre-ordered the family style meal and it was perfect. I imagine this could be a bit touristy and crowded at times, but it was not the day we went -- and of course we were tourists and enjoyed the Rum Punches and crayfish. Bring cash or they will charge extra for credit... More
