Sandys Plateau near Jan Thiel Beach
Sandys Plateau is a beautiful large shallow plateau located, just east of the inlet to the Jan Thiel salt pans, between the Saba Tugboat wreck and Jan Thiel Bay. This shallow plateau extends out to the drop-off where you will find coral covered wall with large Gorgonians, hard corals, and everything in between.
Sandys Plateau is an excellent dive site to spot Caribbean Spiny Lobsters under the overhangs and crabs hiding in the large barrel sponges.
Travelers Tip: Located just between Jan Thiel National Park and Mambo Beach, you’ll find ‘De Zoutpannen’ or the Jan Thiel Salt Pans. Here you can take a stroll through spectacular salt pans, tackle some rocky paths and gaze at the wondrous saltwater lakes. And the piece de resistance: if you are lucky, you’ll even manage to spot some flamingos on your adventure.
