Due to COVID and Rainy Season, the Sandbank Picnic occurs when there are at least 8 people registered to for the excursion. Then it comes down to the weather.


We had plenty of sun to enjoy our time at the sandbank in July 2021.   However, it was NOT a private sandbank. Other resorts were there as well. There were at least 2 other resorts sharing the sandbank with us.


We were given one sandwich and a drink with our own private umbrella. Since we got a workout from snorkeling, we went and grabbed lunch back at the resort since we had a full board option.
