Plan a Stop at Sandy Spit & Sandy Cay

Although the British and US Virgin Islands are home to dozens of perfect white sand beaches, some still stand out. Sandy Spit is one of those beaches. The two tiny, uninhabited islands southeast of Jost Van Dkye, Sandy Spit and Sandy Cay are a true tropical paradise. Accessible only by boat, the islands are free from the throngs of visitors that plague other beaches. Local captains claim the micro-islands have served as the backdrop for numerous Corona commercials, as well as the opening scene for the original "Gilligan's Island" television program.

Swim or take your dinghy to shore to explore to walk around the island- that's right, the beach completely encircles the half acre island! Sandy Spit offers great snorkeling without a bunch of people, and is a perfect place to enjoy a picnic lunch in paradise. Because of their exposed locations, the islands also are a great place to hunt for Caribbean treasure like empty conch shells and fan coral.
