Anguilla Day Trip: Sandy Island

Tagged: , , , , , ,

Describing Sandy Island, just off the coast of Anguilla, as an island is technically correct but pulling up to it, you might swear it’s nothing more than a sand bar. As someone who likes to enjoy as much time on the weekends as possible at the sand bar on our lake, this appeals to me. Throw in the fact that it has a beach bar plopped down right in the middle of it and I’m signing up for the next charter over.

Luckily for the others travelling with me, there’s more to Sandy Island than just its beach bar. On their website, they note the other attractions of the island such as 360 degrees of powder white sand, fresh crayfish and lobster and an amazing underwater kingdom for the snorkelers and scuba divers among us. To quote, it’s “a seashell collector’s paradise and a snorkeler’s dream.”

Articles from people who know more than I do
Trip Advisor – One reviewer says to “Go here! Have fun!!!” I like the succinctness of it.
Uncommon Caribbean – Steve of the brothers Bennett says it’s the best lobster he’s ever had and he would know.
Anguilla Beaches – Of course they have an article on it. Kristin Bourne describes it as an “off-island cay so seductive in its idyllic-tropical-paradise beauty.”

Get Social
Facebook – Not much info on the page and it’s been awhile since it’s been updated but hey, it’s there.

Even though we probably won’t be able to make it to Sandy Island during our few nights on Anguilla, it is at the top of the list for things to do while we are in St. Martin. If you had to choose among Sandy Island, Prickly Pear Island and Pinel Island, which would you choose? We’re up in the air about it so your advice could help determine our itinerary.
