We were Lucky enough to be there in low season. All together were only about 11 people on the Island. They said as of November there will be sometimes 200 people there. Not a cheap option, but a nice island.

We just came back home from a 10 day trip to Anguilla. We've been going every year for the past 5 years. This year, for the second time around we took the ferry to go to Sandy Island. It's definitely a nice trip there. It's a cute little island, water is beautiful. The first time around (2015) their rum punches... More

1. You want to wait 2 hours for your food 2. Over pay for that 2 hour wait. 3. Stand in line for 20 minutes to get a drink. 4. Literally be stuck on the island until there is a ferry or they have room on the ferry. 5. Anguilla has beautiful beaches everywhere, stay away from this one.

The food is okay but it is way too expensive. We pre-ordered our food so didn't realize that with four kids and two adults would be walking out with a $300 check. We did have one rum punch and it was great.

This private island is open daily for lunch and very easy to get to on their ferry that runs every hour for $10 return. It gets windy so bring a hat! This island is super chill but get there early and get your lunch order in as it gets busy as the day goes on (you can schedule when you... More

We took a Catamaran ride which stopped at Sandy Island in Anguilla. What a special place! We met the really nice and friendly owner (who moved here from New York). Had some drinks and sampled their wonderful coconut shrimp. They serve a full lunch too. What a special place not to be missed when vacationing in Anguilla. Definitely worth the... More

This is possibly the most beautiful place I have seen so far! And for sure one of the best Caribbean beach bar! The view is amazing, a fantastic beach and bay. The place can be Croce as it's very popular. Great bar list and loved the lobster

Assured that the Sandy Island Ferry ran every hour my daughter and I showed up at 12:45 or so, and asked where the ferry would come. We were politely shown and had a soft drink at Johno's (nice people) while waiting. Then we waited until 1:20, were told we must have just missed one. So we waited. At 1:45 we... More
