Favourite Caribbean beaches

Toronto Sun: "Carry-a-what? Carriacou (Carry-a-coo) is a tiny, southern island in the pretty Grenadine chain, a favourite stop for sailors touring the Caribbean, and a little-sister island to much larger Grenada.

Sandy Island is a Gilligan-like isle off Carriacou's coast consisting of little else but a white sand beach with lapping azure-coloured water.

Reaching the beach takes a bit of work, but whiling away an afternoon on Sandy Island beach is about as relaxing as a good whiling can get, so it's worth the effort. If you're vacationing on Grenada, hop on a morning ferryboat (The Osprey), which sails daily roundtrip to Carriacou. The hour's ride whips by about as quickly as the Pirates-of-the-Caribbean scenery."
