We spent the afternoon at Sandy Island and loved it. The boat ride out was easy and quick, the beach spectacular, food was great and people very friendly. Angelique, Jose, Dion, El-El, and Judith are super hosts. Truly enjoyed our day there.

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!
