Sandy Cay, British Virgin Islands

(located 2-3 miles off Jost Van Dyke)
Sandy Cay is located about a mile to the south of Green Cay. It is the ideal tropical, desert island, dotted with palm trees on wide, gently sloping beaches. Fantastic swimming and snorkeling are also available here on calmer days. Sandy Cay is uninhabited and located midway point between Tortola and Jost Van Dyke. The island is a managed wilderness area with short hiking trail.  The rocks on the island have a greenish color from copper ore deposits and the island also contains a small salt pond in its center. Sandy Cay is a 14 acre undeveloped island, Sandy Cay will be preserved as a combination botanic garden, nature reserve and low key recreational area. The beach is spectacularly beautiful with a white sand beach fringed by overhanging palms. Sandy Cay is now in the hands of the British Virgin Islands.

Below is a review by a visitor of Sandy Cay, British Virgin Islands from Tripadvisor.com
we think she said it best.
"If you go to the British Virgin Islands, Sandy Cay cannot be missed. It could quite possibly be the most beautiful island there is! The sand is as soft as powder and just as white. You can see nearly 40 feet below through the water, that's how crystal clear it is. Something else a lot of people might not know is that there is an amazing trail that leads to the top of the island. Once you're at the top, you are staring straight down the most beautiful rock cliff with crashing waves. You have to see this in your lifetime!"
