“What a lovely beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2013

We stopped here while sailing with the Diamant and this beach was fabulous. There is very good snorkeling at one end and the waters are beautiful. There isn't a lot of shade but you can work your way into the middle of the island (note middle meaning 20' from the water) and find shade. It is not busy here at all since it must be accessed by boat. We loved this small little strip of beach!

“A small crecent-shaped island of sand”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2013

Sandy Beach is a beautiful little crecent of sand with excellent snorkeling. The downside is the lack of shade and the sun is intense.

“Island escape.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2013

Trully a deserted island that you are more than likely to have all to yourself. Fantastic snorkelling and beautiful beach. Great to spend a morning or an afternoon. Remember to take some snacks, water and be aware there is absolutely no shade. We hired the boatman from the Hardwood Bar at paradise beach to take us out and pick us up a few hours later. I think we paid 80EC ish (£20). A nice day out.

“Great spot”

Take a water taxi off paradise beach, bring your own drinks and enjoy this peaceful deserted little island. Don't forget your snorkelling gear!
