Big Sandy Pond is a warm water natural kettle hole pond. Vegetation is scant over a bottom that is composed of sand and rock rubble. There is less than two miles of shoreline but nearly all of it has been developed with year round homes and summer cottages. The only area with little or no development is along the northern and southern side of the peninsula that juts into the pond from the south. Bourne Road runs near the western shore of the pond. The Ponds of Plymouth, a large residential development, surrounds the northern and eastern shores of the pond. The Division of Fisheries & Wildlife provides access in the form of a concrete pad ramp suitable for trailer boats off Gunning Point Road, a dirt road, at the southeastern shore. See below...
