Sandy Island

A tiny crescent island off the coast of mainland Carriacou, Grenada.

An isolated island with a rustic charm.

Uninhabited.

The crabs featured at the end of the clip were quite something. There seemed to be hundreds of them all living under a big pile of old fallen coconut tree leaves. As soon as our picnic/lunch was served, the crabs began migrating towards us en masse. I had to lift my feet off the floor while eating, for fear of a pinch.

The crabs had no fear, I had the fear.

These guys (hermit crabs, I think) were very different to crabs we’re used to seeing on the beach – you know, the one’s that peep out of their sand hole for a few seconds the disappear as soon as you make the slightest movement.

So I learnt something new about crab diversity!

I also managed to pick up some pretty impressive old crab shells around the small pools of sea water, making sure they had no inhabitants first.
