After a day on a catamaran we were definitely ready for lunch- having pre ordered through our captain we were hungry when we got to sandy island. Perhaps it was the rum punch or the sun that made me particularly hungry that day, but lunch...More

What was a great day of white sand, warm water, and lunch/drinks, ended as a shock with a $1900 tab!! Be on notice! While we asked over and over for a menu, and asked why the bartender wasn't keeping a tally of our drink orders,...More

The island is lovely, but I paid $85 for some very mediocre food. I'm not sure how these places get away with doing this, but I think the rum punch is so lethal that the food is secondary! Definitely go, but not if it's a...More

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.

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...More

Voted one of the top five beach bars in the Caribbean; Sandy Island is a tiny spit of sand in the middle of the ocean serving fabulous fresh seafood, with excellent wine and beverage service and 360 degrees of ocean views. It is the ultimate destination for lunch, snorkeling and beach lounging.
