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.

  • We went to Carriacou on Paradise Beach! There are some bars. We were in the off the roof bar. Made very welcome and the food is good! Also, this beach is very quiet, what we appreciate!

  • Sandy Island is a just a short boat ride by water taxi from Paradise Beach ... costs about $20 round trip. The snorkling is fabulous. Take your own gear. You will not be disappointed.  more »
  • Murings for boats and ships available, nice "lonely" sand beach, good for snorkeling, even the Palm trees grow again after the Hurrikkan
