Sandy Island, Carriacou Island

(150+ reviews on the web)
Island
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.
