Either hire a private charter or catch Sandy Island’s sea shuttle, the aptly named boat “Joy” from the wharf in Sandy Ground ($10 round trip and call 264 476 6534 to reserve).

CuisinArt Beach Drinks

Right on Rendezvous Bay, “The Shack” at CuisinArt has long been a favorite for refreshing, beach-side cocktails, expertly prepared.

Made with the freshest of ingredients that the drink calls for (melons, pineapples, coconuts, etc.), mixologist Justin always gets it right.

Two of our favorites?

The Frosty Coconut, blended with Malibu rum, amaretto and coconut cream

Laurel’s Special, mixed with pineapple, midori, anisette, white rum and amaretto.
