Sandy Island is a small cay off Sandy Ground beach in Anguilla. It is quite possibly the most beautiful place one will ever visit. A popular off island getaway, Sandy Island offers visitors a sensational tropical experience. It’s far away enough for that quintessential Robinson Crusoe feeling, yet close enough to stay connected to the mainland. The Restaurant opens daily serving fresh seafood and grilled meats, and the bar is fully stocked with ice cold beers and spirits from around the world.

a must see....but bring your own goodies if you are allowed, as the selection at the island is not great. Treat it like all natural wonders, take off the island everything you bring in, and leave with nothing but memories. The reef is suffering and...More

This beautiful little island boasts the best lobster I've ever tasted. Simply amazing! The price is a little steep, but it's well worth it for the experience. We were on a charter not a tour, so we were able to stay at anchor a little...More

A quick trip by boat which is a must. The little island in the middle of no where is amazing. We were there during off season so this was perfect. The beautiful white sand with a few hermit crabs strutting around was awesome. Sun beds...More

My husband and I took a boat from Sandy Ground on Anguilla and spent about 4 hours on Sandy Island. We had lunch at the restaurant which was good, nothing exceptional though. You pay for your lounge chairs, food, drinks and boat ride all at...More

From a distance Sandy Island doesn't look like much. But pull up onto its whitest white sand beach and you're transported a world away. This is the place to relax, meet locals and fellow travelers, listen to beautiful live music, swing in a hammock to...More

Great snorkeling location, nice little beach and a friendly restaurant with a decent menu considering where the place is.

OMG! We had to pinch ourselves in order to believe our eyes. It is gorgeous! We had a drone that took pictures from above: the best pictures, the most beautiful thing on earth!

A total beach oasis - a tiny island that serves (way overpriced, but imagine the cost of moving all that product onto what is essentially just a sand bar) drinks and some food. You can walk the entire island in less than five minutes, of...More

After years of visiting Anguilla. We finally made it to Sandy Island. The boat ride over is fun. Once you arrive the beach you see it is tiny. Unless you are eating or drinking there is not much to do. Maybe it was an off...More

Guests catch the shuttle from the small pier in Sandy Ground next to the Marine and Customs office. It takes 5 minutes out of the harbour. We look forward to seeing you on beautiful Sandy Island!
