“Shawshank Redemption”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2013

Did you know this is where the last scene in the movie Shawshank Redemption was filmed? Its a beautiful beach but its only open on the weekends to protect the natural habitat of local turtles. I would recommend visiting if you have time and are staying in Frederiksted.

“Gorgeous beach, walk for miles”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

This beach is at the southwestern tip of the island. It is only open on the weekends and is closed during turtle nesting. White, powdery sand for miles, a beautiful beach to walk. No amenities provided. A must see!

“Private beautiful beach!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2013

I had the pleasure of going to Sandy Point...and it was amazing. Pristine sand and blue waters! My group lucked out as we were essentially the only people in sight! With Frederiksted pier/boats in the distance, I felt like we had the whole beach to ourselves. Yes access is limited to weekends only til 4pm, but little known fact, they open during the week when their is a cruise ship docked. That is in a sense how my group got lucky, it was during the week when their was a ship docked. A great way to enjoy the place to yourself!

“It's all about getting there”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 31, 2013

We walked all the way along the beach from Friederiksted to Sandy Point. Though sandy point is beautiful, walking all the way there had a very special charm. Make sure to take water, sunscreen and a hat with you, there is nothing along the beach. Some parts can get rocky. Use appropriate shoes. The walk is long but it's worth it.
