Sandy Island

Island in Anguilla

Just 1.6 miles (2.5km) northwest of Sandy Ground, this tiny islet has a pure white-sand beach fringed by palm trees, translucent waters for snorkeling amid the turtle- and grouper-filled colored coral, and a daily seafood barbecue (mains US$24 to US$38) with a bar serving island-inspired cocktails including potent JoJo rum punch. The island's own tender runs a shuttle-boat service on demand; journey time is 10 minutes. Tour operators making the trip out here include Sail Chocolat.
