If you are lucky enough to find yourself in Anguilla, this is a trip you would be insane to skip. The boat ride is only 10 minutes, but the experience will last a lifetime. The beauty and tranquility of Sandy Beach is indescribable. It is honestly paradise. We had an incredible lunch with lobster, shrimp, mahi mahi, rum punch, etc.... More

We spent one day at Sandy Island. We had a blast. It is a little sand bar with a few palm trees, and a bar and restaurant with great food and drinks and some of the most friendly people you will ever meet. It is a "do not miss" when visiting Anguilla. Beware the rum punch, it is much stronger... More

A short boat ride from Anguilla brings you to another slice of paradise in the Caribbean. A small island with lounge chairs, beds, volleyball and sandy beaches is a getaway not to be missed. The lunch is outstanding especially the crayfish (lobster). Simone is a great host and took care of our large party with ease. What was going to... More

Must use a boat to arrive there. The sand is white and dazzling. One can picnic there but remember to use UV cream. Visited here years ago

My title says it all. While vacationing with several friends we grew the courage to explore this small island to see what all the hype was about and we so happy we did! The views, the food, the drinks, the music, the staff, the other visitors, nothing but perfect. Did I mention the snorkeling around the island was the best... More

From the hip house tunes to the bottles of Veuve for sale, this small island is an amazing escape. Turquoise water, unique sea shells, delicious food.

This island is a triangle in the sea . Beautiful white beaches and a restuarant in the middle of it.

This could easily be a shooting location for a movie- it's incredibly picturesque and lunch was great! We visited as a part of a boat tour but there were solo visitors grabbing a bite as well. Drinks were pricey but on an otherwise deserted island one can't not expect an up charge. It's places like these that inspire me to... More

My husband and I enjoyed a wonderful afternoon on Sandy Island. Seeing the island from the boat on the way over was a great treat. we enjoyed a lazy day of snorkeling, reading on the beach and enjoyed a wonderful lunch of chicken and ribs. This is a very economical excursion for only $10pp. A must if you like to... More
