“A small crecent-shaped island of sand”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2013

Sandy Beach is a beautiful little crecent of sand with excellent snorkeling. The downside is the lack of shade and the sun is intense.

“Island escape.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2013

Trully a deserted island that you are more than likely to have all to yourself. Fantastic snorkelling and beautiful beach. Great to spend a morning or an afternoon. Remember to take some snacks, water and be aware there is absolutely no shade. We hired the boatman from the Hardwood Bar at paradise beach to take us out and pick us up a few hours later. I think we paid 80EC ish (£20). A nice day out.

Take a water taxi off paradise beach, bring your own drinks and enjoy this peaceful deserted little island. Don't forget your snorkelling gear!

“Nice short trip”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 28, 2012

Pretty island / sand bank. Apparently nice snorkelling if you pick your spot. Really hard to get any shade if that is important to you. Taking lunch over seems popular
