It is quite possibly the most beautiful place one will ever visit. A popular off island getaway, Sandy Island offers visitors a sensational tropical experience. It’s far away enough for that quintessential Robinson Crusoe feeling, yet close enough to stay connected to the mainland.
With just a little make shift shack for shade, a traditional drum-pan barbecue grill and a cooler stocked with cold beer and wine. The island's staff entertain boat loads of hungry sun and sea worshippers for many years.
Anchor beyond the reef and dinghy to shore to find a seashell collector's paradise, 360 degrees of powder white sand, fresh crayfish and Lobster, great BBQ ribs, the Best Rum Cocktails and an amazing underwater kingdom for snorkeling. (Snorkeling equipment may be checked out of the resort's Sea Centre for use on Sandy Island)
From the resort, you’ll need to take a cab or drive to Sandy Ground (20 minute ride). You can take a shuttle or private boat to the island from Sandy Ground and it takes about 10 minutes by boat.
- Sandy Island Sea Shuttle on every hour : Catch the sea shuttles Happiness, Bliss or Joy from the small pier at Sandy Ground Beach. Cost $10 per person round trip. Look for the Sandy Island sign at the entrance of the parking lot. While reservations are preferred, beach walkers and drifters are welcome
- Private Boat Charters: Private boat charter operators, both large and small can use the designated mooring area to drop anchor and dinghy in to shore.
Open daily for Lunch. All Reservations may be arranged through the Concierge Desk.
Sandy Island is only closed on instances of inclement weather and is only 5 minutes away.
