Carriacou and Sandy Island 12 28 900N 61 28 900W
Our next stop was Carriacou, arriving in Hillesborough where we checked in with Customs and Immigration, then headed over to Sandy Island just over a mile away. This is within their National Park but only had one mooring buoy in a pretty bad state, so we anchored in sand and took the dinghy ashore. The island is a beautiful spit of sand, locals have planted trees to try and hold the island together, and it was totally deserted so we had it completely to ourselves for the afternoon.
Sandy on Sandy Island..
A snorkel off the beach brought some stunning scenery, from sand to a carpet of velvety greens where lots of fish and moray eels rummaged and hid. Then the coral heads were reached with a stunning aray of jouvenile fish and whilst filming with the GoPro a stingray glided over the coral like a low flying aircraft.
