The best beach

This is possibly the most beautiful place I have seen so far! And for sure one of the best Caribbean beach bar! The view is amazing, a fantastic beach and bay. The place can be Croce as it's very popular. Great bar list and loved the lobster

Assured that the Sandy Island Ferry ran every hour my daughter and I showed up at 12:45 or so, and asked where the ferry would come. We were politely shown and had a soft drink at Johno's (nice people) while waiting. Then we waited until 1:20, were told we must have just missed one. So we waited. At 1:45 we... More

First, previous reviewers are correct, coming out here for lunch and drinks... and paying for chairs is expensive. But we had a great time and the lobster was terrific. We brought our own snorkels and enjoyed snorkeling around the island. Not to be missed!

We rented a boat for the day and we stopped in Sandy Island for lunch. What a great place. Very authentic. Amazing view cause you are on the smallest island restaurant all by itself. White sand white water. But dont eat the lobster or ask for the price before :):)

We were having breakfast on the SeaDream Yacht voyage when I noticed a little island with a building on it. We inquired and we were told it was a restaurant! We were in! We took the Joy over. We went over with one other couple (who we just met). We had the island to ourselves. We ordered lunch. They said... More

The boat leaves from the dock on Sandy Ground to Sandy Island about every hour starting at 10:00 through 2:00. I’m pretty sure the guy said the last boat takes you out there at 2:00 and the last boat to take you back leaves Sandy Island at 4:00. We just missed the 2:00 the first day but caught an earlier...

My fiancée and I love this island so much that we are getting married in Anguilla later this year. We are kind, extremely patient people. This, however, was the worst if not only negative experience in our two times visiting Anguilla. The boat to Sandy Island is supposed to leave at 10am but they have to send over supplies and...

Stopped here on a boat tour and it was so amazing to be on this tiny little island. The bartenders are ready to get everyone a drink and have a good time. Great seafood, fresh and tasty.
