We arrived in our own catamaran and took a mooring ball, fees are collected every evening when the marine park boat comes around. As a protected marine environment, anchoring is not permitted and we are glad of that because the sea life is prolific. We spent hours snorkelling and swimming, strolling along the beach and generally enjoying having the place... More

Flew up from Grenada - Allison then took us on a wonderful island before we whisked over to Sandy Island for a wonderful lunch under a shaded Gazebo. We then had a couple of hours to explore the small crescent shaped island, sunbathe and swim in the crystal clear waters. We were then taken to the harbour to catch the... More

Sandy Island is a great place to visit, wonderful turquoise water, palms, some nice snorkeling possibilties (there are better ones at other islands, however). It definitely adds to the charm that there are no facilities, but it limits the time you can spend there as well. We came by boat, a water taxi for 40 EC per person from Hard... More

Fun Boxing Day at the Beach with fFiends! Came on the first boat - stayed all day - left on the last boat! Food was a real surprise! Loved the meatballs. Not your typical beach bar generic staples. Drinks were divine. Bathrooms were clean and a plus on an island!

We spent 2 hours here on a trip with Sunsations and hosted by Allison of reef tours. Has a lovely lunch under the shade of trees with hammocks to lounge around in. Good snorkelling at the farthest end of the beach. Sea very choppy when trying to get back on the boat

You can say you were on the quintessential tiny tropical island. Sandy all around with a few trees and some bush in the center. No fresh water, not much to see. Turquoise calm water to swim in. Bring food & drink, don't stay all day.

Sandy Island is one of the most relaxing and beautiful places I have ever visited! You will have to take a boat from Carriacou - choose your boat and driver wisely. Also, Make sure and bring water and some snacks.

there is nothing on sandy island except for little hermit crabs and the odd seagull, this is a glorious place to visit while sailing in the grenadines. well worth the trip and safe anchorage.

We had a local fisherman take us to this small island paradise for about 4 hours. Very little traffic - people seem to come and go leaving the island mostly deserted. One can walk from one end to the other on this island gem in no time. Sand was lovely and the snorkelling on the east side was probably close... More

Sandy Island is a beautiful slice of sand in the water off Carriacou. Definitely worth the brief boat trip out there. Usually not many people there, although sometimes a large boat will make it crowded. Just off the island there were tens of thousands of schooling fish from guppy size to about 5 inches and everything in between. The biggest... More
