While pretty, it's just a sandy beach. I preferred the beaches just south of Fredriksted as you can snorkel and see fish (no snorkeling at Sandy Point). We tried to do some bird watching at the big pond, but found no access, which was a shame. I also found the sand to be too pebbly, not soft and sugary. Sorry, but I'm visiting the Caribbean for snorkeling, so don't see the charms of this beach. But it is an important nesting area for sea turtles, which is greatly appreciated that they keep the public off the beach at certain seasons.
