This tiny strip of sand is a getaway from your getaway! The island features merely 0.6 of an acre of silky smooth white sand in an elongated shape tinged with the occasional colorful umbrella and the obligatory white beach chairs. From Sandy Ground Wharf it is only about a 12 minute power boat ride to the island.
Once you arrive, you will be treated to a small restaurant that stays busy serving a variety of tropical drinks including some island specialty rum based elixirs. Once you’ve chilled in the sand with a cold one in hand glance at their menu. Highlights include fresh crayfish and lobster. Several tables are located under a wooden roof for when you want to eat or escape the sun. But this is just for short while – you really want to be out on the beach or in the azure waters.
Bring your snorkel and mask (neither are provided on the island) for some memorable underwater views.
And be sure to chat with owner Simone Connor about the island’s history – she and her family lease the island from the government and operate the restaurant.
