Sandy Ground: an unspoiled Caribbean corner

Sandy Ground is tucked away along the north coast of Anguilla. It strikes a perfect balance, being an undeveloped paradise but offering enough to do that you'll never be restless. By day, you can kick back on the crescent-shaped beach which wraps around the Road Salt Pond, or head out on watery adventures. As the evening begins to close in, you can swing by one of the beachside bars for simple barbecued seafood, washed down with cold Caribbean beer and rum punches. Listen to the sounds of live music before returning to your waterside Sandy Ground vacation rental.

Things to do

Gorge on Sandy Ground's seafood

When you stay in a Sandy Ground vacation rental, you're perfectly placed for soaking up the island life. The island is known for having some of the best cuisine in the Caribbean served from its 100 or so restaurants, many of which are found in Sandy Ground. Here, you can knock back rum punches while gorging on freshly caught lobster and crab. What could be better? For a slice of island history, you should take an afternoon away from the beach to visit the Heritage Collection Museum, which houses artifacts and photography from the last century.

Activities

Do as much or little as you want in Sandy Ground

You can take your pick when it comes to water sports. You won't have to look far from your Sandy Ground vacation rental to find all sorts of ocean-going toys, like paddleboards and sea kayaks. Ever wanted to give wakeboarding or kite surfing a go? Now's your chance and with so many water sports schools, you've got no excuse. The fun doesn't stop back on dry land, particularly for horseback riders who can gallop along the water's edge during sunset. There's only one golf course on the island, but what a course. Be sure to bring your clubs and expect to splurge.

Weather

Winter sees the best weather in Sandy Ground

The almost perfect weather of blue skies and 80s temperature in winter brings the biggest crowds to stay in Sandy Ground vacation rentals. Tip-toeing down to the sunny beach when you know the snows are beating down at home is one of life's great pleasures. Unsurprisingly, the biggest influx of travelers correlates with the heftiest prices on rentals. If you want to save a few bucks and skip the crowds, try to visit between May and August, when the sun is still out in force, and the tropical downpours and hurricanes have yet to hit the island.

Natural features

Southern rays and nurse sharks in Sandy Ground

The land-dwelling wildlife on Anguilla is a little limited, though you'll likely spot geckos and iguanas basking in the midday heat and some 130 or so resident and migratory bird species have been recorded. What most wildlife enthusiasts come to stay in Sandy Ground vacation rentals for is the impressive marine life in the waters surrounding the Caribbean island. The list is seemingly endless, but highlights including southern stingrays, sea turtles and nurse sharks, which are seen during almost every dive. Keep your eyes peeled for angelfish, parrotfish and barracuda.
