Sandy Spit, BVI

The British Virgin Islands are truly blessed to lay claim to an enchanting little island such as Sandy Spit! Girdled by a picture perfect, 360° white sand beach, sailors and visitors from all over the world continue to enjoy sun bathing, excellent snorkeling, picnics and exploring here.

Sandy Spit lies immediately south of Green Cay and is within spitting distance of Jost Van Dyke and Sandy Cay.

This tiny little island lights up the aqua marine, Caribbean Sea like a beacon in the sun. The perfect beach is punctuated by a cluster of rocks with green vegetation and two lonely coconut palms.

Sandy Spit BVI

It is often written by authoritative sources that Anegada is the only coral island within the BVI. As I have stated elsewhere, I am not a geologist ... but my guess is that the Spit may also be a coral island as opposed to volcanic in origin. But then again, what do I know .. its entirely possible that I may be mistaken. Or, perhaps it was overlooked because the island is so small?

Sandy Spit from the Water

Provided sea conditions allow, snorkeling or scuba diving here is terrific. There are a multitude of colourful corals and small reef fish close to shore. If the swells are up, snorkeling can be a little tricky, so please exercise caution.

to highlight this gorgeous slice of heaven in the Caribbean!

Linked to Green Cay by a coral bridge (which you can nearly walk across given the right sea conditions), this is a fascinating and fun area to explore!
