Sandy Island, Carriacou Island

4.4
#2 of 8 in Beaches 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. Our Carriacou Island vacation generator makes visiting Sandy Island and other Carriacou Island attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

    Empty Beach on the island of a picture book, so how one imagines the Caribbean. Sandy Island marine reserve is one and is easy to reach from Hillsborough. With your own boat, you can make set the island on one of the mooring buoys. Good snorkeling area.
