It is the big sand mass in between Ft. Mcree and the intercoastal. Great place for beaching the boat and camping :letsdrink

between Ft.McRee and the navy base. If you are going to go there try and follow another boat to it becasue it is real shallow in areas around there and if you arent in the channels you will stick yourself and it will SUCK trying to push a boat around when its cold out.

Sand Island is also known as Admirals Island (The sand is pumped there to keep the channels open so the Admiral can make it home)

It is also known as Dog Island (You can take a dog there, but not on Fort McRee side.)

the difference is, its admiral island to natives, and sand island/bird island/dog island/pelican island etc to most everyone else.

on the navigation maps sand island is in Alabama southeast of pelican island, which is south of dolphin island next to mobile ship channel



i believe you are looking for admirals island west of pensacola pass as in map above.
