Sandy Island, Carriacou Island

4.7
#2 of 17 in Nature in Grenada
Explore the marine and avian life at Sandy Island, a calm, secluded enclave of white sand fringed by coconut trees. After Hurricane Ivan demolished the island in 2004, Grenada designated it a nature reserve. Bring snorkeling gear to explore the underwater world, or binoculars to do some bird-watching on land. The island, accessible by water taxi, makes a perfect escape from the usual crowded spots, its long stretch of beach giving a sense of peaceful seclusion. Facilities on site include restrooms, but you should plan to bring your own food and drink.

  • This is a beautiful little island. The sand is perfect. The water many shades of blue. We did not see much while snorkeling, but maybe we were not in the best place. We enjoyed spending 2.5 hours here...  more »
