This bay is more for boaters, locals, diners and not so much for beach goers. There are plenty of great places to eat here -- dinner and lunch. Great sunsets !!!

Not too much bad to say here other than the island is a little pricey and public transportation is horrible. This area sits on the other end of the Blowing Point Ferry. JOHNNO's restaurant is there and it's a peaceful bay and great beach to lay out in or swim.

There is so much to do in Sandy Ground. The water was a bit rough this year but in Sandy Ground it was still okay to swim. There are restaurants and bars to hang out in. It's fabulous for a walk and there is also water sports available. Its a great place to be.

Sandy ground is a shipping port and fishing wharf. The beach is ok for a walk. Lots of restaurants for dinner (I think some had lunch too although not sure as we only went around dinner time). We initially visited this beach to find a geocache (which we found!) and decided to stay for dinner. Ate at Roy's, good food,... More

Stop by any of the numerous beachfront bars at Sandy Ground, order a drink, listen to the friendly conversation and join in. We visited several of the bars and resturants over our two week stay on Anguilla and frequently met fun... More

Sandy Ground is definitely one of the busiest beaches we visited, commercially speaking. Lots of restaurant opportunities and some shopping too. The harbor is always full of boats and nightlife jumping. Can't say its the best choice for lounging or sunbathing, certainly not for snorkeling but if you are looking for choices this is the place.

This is where we have chosen to have our vacation for the past three years. We are right on the beach for swimming. Great diving at Special D's right on Sandy Ground. My husband had great experiences on trips out with them. All sorts of great restaurants right here on the beach. Perfect.

Delightful lunch with 7 at Sandy Ground today. All drinks and dishes were excellent. Lobster was wonderful as was the peas and rice and cole slaw. Drinks were excellent and staff a delight I would totally recommend this delightful spot for lunch, swim and snorkel.
