Beautiful turquoise water, just one other yacht moored nearby. Great snorkeling on the north top end. Lovely white sand with palm trees on this long thin island. We did have a few squalls of rain coming through at this time of the year.

Natural and beautiful. You can enjoy snorkeling, swimming, fishing, diving etc. very peaceful and self absorbing. Hidden gem to enjoy to the max without interruption. It is a must visit if you are in the grenadines.

This little island in the main bay of the island of Carriacou is a perfect beach destination. It was picturesque and quiet. We went with Arawak Divers and all had a great time- kids, snorkelers, scuba divers, and sun worshippers :) Highly recommended.

Sandy Island is a beautiful spot with decent snorkeling. The best spot is on the right of the island as you face it from the water. The challenge I faced was getting into the boat from the beach. It was very high up to climb...More
