Sandy Cay is an uninhabited island of the British Virgin Islands in the Caribbean. It is located midway point between Tortola and Jost Van Dyke. The island is owned by the Laurance Rockefeller Estate; however, the estate is in the Process of handing the island over to the B.V.I. National Parks Trust. The island is a "managed wilderness" area with short hiking trail, maintained with the help of Island Resources Foundation (IRF), an international non-governmental organization (NGO). IRF subcontracts caretaking responsibilities to a local organization, The Jost van Dykes Preservation Society (JVDPS), which sponsors regular visits from Little Harbour on Jost van Dykes to maintain the trail, do frequent bird counts and remove trash. The rocks on the island have a greenish colour from copper ore deposits. The island also contains a small salt pond in its centre. The name Sandy Cay is also shared by several small islands in the Bahamas as well as an island in Honduras.

Great Tobago Island

Located at 18.45, -64.73 (Lat. / Lng.), less than 4 mi away.
More reading: Wikipedia Article

Great Tobago is an uninhabited island of the British Virgin Islands in the Caribbean, located, along with sister island Little Tobago, approximately six miles west of Jost Van Dyke. Great Tobago and Little Tobago islands are protected as a national park, and, along with the nearby Mercurious and Watson Rocks, represent the western border of the British Virgin Islands. Great Tobago contains the Caribbean's third largest population of nesting seabirds, including Magnificent Frigate Birds, Long-tailed Tropic Birds, Terns, Pelicans, and other species. Though it's legal to snorkel and dive around the island, it is illegal to anchor because all potential anchoring locations are coral reefs that would be destroyed by an anchor. Large fines can occur if you violate this no-anchor zone, which is frequently patrolled by the BVI Marine Police. In the 1990s, a company from the neighboring United States Virgin Islands floated a proposal to build a waste dump on Great Tobago Island, but the proposal was turned down by the British Virgin Islands government.

Great Thatch is an uninhabited island of the British Virgin Islands in the Caribbean. It is one of the westernmost islands in the Territory. Although presently uninhabited, it was formerly occupied, and boasted a customs house and mail exchange where the mail would be delivered from Charlotte Amalie by skiff after the packet ships had called there. There remains a significant ruin on the island, although it is extremely difficult to access as the paths are all heavily overgrown. At the property a significant civil disturbance occurred on the island in 1856 where local law enforcement officers were beaten in a smuggling dispute. The island was formerly in private hands, but was repurchased by the Government of the Territory in September 1997, and is now a national park.

Piracy in the British Virgin Islands was prevalent during the so-called "Golden Age of Piracy", mainly during the age of 1690-1730. Privateering was also widely practised in the jurisdiction throughout frequent colonial wars, not least by emancipated slaves who, with in preference to back-breaking labour in the fields for pitiful wages, took enormous risks to capture fortunes on the seas with the sanction of the Crown. In 1808, Patrick Colquhoun, a prize agent for the Territory spoke of "the most daring outrages which are frequently committed by people of colour."

The cay boasts a wide variety of reef fishes and coral, however bleaching is prevalent, and the marine life has decreased in recent times. Many attribute the depletion of coral reefs in the U.S. Virgin Islands to high rates of erosion and run off caused by construction.
