Fodor's Expert Review Sandy Island
A popular day trip, tiny Sandy Island shelters a pretty lagoon nestled in coral reefs about 2 miles (3 km) from Road Bay, with a restaurant that serves lunch and great islandy cocktails. Fans of TV's The Bachelor may recall the Valentine's Day picnic date here in 2011. From November through August you can take the Happiness sea shuttle from Sandy Ground ($10 round-trip). There is mooring for yachts and larger sailboats. Small boats can come right in the channel. The reef is great for snorkeling. Amenities: food and drink. Best for: partiers; snorkeling; swimming.
