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).

As you approach the sun-soaked isle, it’s hard not to get butterflies in your stomach. The scenery is that spectacular…

Once docked, what’s for lunch?

(Sandy Island’s menu also features a wide variety of appetizers and mains including, crayfish, lobster, fresh fish and chicken.)

With just the sea surrounding you, the rest of the afternoon calls for a long soak in Sandy Island’s shimmering-clear waters.

Anguilla’s Jammin’ Aquaponic Garden Taking Shape

With the fish swimming happily and providing nutrients, the Aquaponic Garden is nicely taking shape. This week the Deep Water Culture bed finally became a reality.
The traditional pieces to make this type of bed were not readily available on the island, so creative thinking once again came into play. Swim noodles were used to float plywood in the water and holes were drilled to hold plastic cups. The cups will hold plants like lettuce, herbs and strawberries allowing the roots to hang down into the nutrient rich water.

This week students from Ms. Murdoch’s Grade 1 class from the Omololu International School were able to see first hand how an Aquaponic Garden works.

The planted seeds that will eventually go into the deep Water Culture bed and planted small tomato seedlings in the Hanging Pot grow beds. They also enjoyed the daily routine of feeding the fish. The Anguilla’s Jammin’ Team will keep the entire class up to date on the progress of their plantings via our Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/AnguillasJammin
