Overview
More
Sandy Island is a small cay off Sandy Ground beach in Anguilla. 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. The Restaurant opens daily serving fresh seafood and grilled meats, and the bar is fully stocked with ice cold beers and spirits from around the world.

Small island off the North coast with beach restaurant and bar. Ordered lunch ahead of time from hotel. Crayfish and lobster were delicious along with cold beer and rum punch. Pretty pricey but the atmosphere is incredible and your in the middle of nowhere.

What a blast we had! Punky brought us safely from Sandy Ground to the Island. It was windy, but we got some sun, had a few drinks- probably a few too many- lol and then a delicious lunch! We would definitely recommend.

A $10 round trip ride to a piece of beautiful sand off of Sandy Ground. They are quick to rebuild after the hurricane. There is no shortage of food, cocktail or amazing hospitality. Plenty of chairs, loungers and view. Food options are ribs, chicken, prawn,...More

Guests catch the shuttle from the small pier in Sandy Ground next to the Marine and Customs office. It takes 5 minutes out of the harbour. We look forward to seeing you on beautiful Sandy Island!
