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.

This is a beautiful stop while on a boat excursion. The restaurant/bar, however, is overpriced, so I would not recommend eating lunch there. We just got a few apps and drinks. The establishment should considering lowering its prices, especially since our boat driver took us...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!
