Anguilla’s main island is packed with an astounding number of pristine white sand beaches within its 35 square miles. Exploring this island’s vast shorelines could take weeks or more. Adventurers will delight in realizing there is even more territory to be discovered off-island. Surrounding Anguilla are over 20 cays, or small sandy islands on the surface of coral reefs. Anguilla’s nearby cays offer more possibilities for exploring remote islands and discovering hidden beaches that you may get to enjoy all to yourself; one of these islands worth visiting is Sandy Island.

Happiness awaits, literally, because this is the name of the boat you’ll need to catch for your 20 minute journey to Sandy Island. Arrive here prepared to completely unwind and live your dream island experience.
- The only establishment you will find on Sandy Island is one restaurant, so sink your toes in the fine sand and claim a beach chair in which to relax for the day. Read a book or simply lay back and listen to the gentle sounds of the ocean. When you’ve worked up an appetite, the restaurant serves up platters of ribs, lobster, crayfish, and other fresh catches of the day. After your meal, the only thing left on the agenda will be to further relax with a glass of rum punch. All of this without ever removing your toes from the sand is life on Sandy Island!
