#2 of 6 in Things to do in Sandy Ground
Relax at Sandy Island, a cay with soft white sand and picturesque turquoise waters. Lie down on a beach bed and bask in the sun with an exotic cocktail, while the kids snorkel among the coral reef or take part in a game of beach volleyball. Dine at the island’s breezy restaurant, which serves typical Caribbean cuisine of seafood and meat. If you're feeling fancy, you can even spoil yourself with a lobster dish. Doze off in a hammock under the shade of a palm tree before heading back to the mainland.

  • Discovered in late 19th century and "undiscovered" in November 2012. I suppose they use the Euro as currency there ( just in case one has the roads past...)
