In 1977 Sandy and Hugh Buckner, the Sandyport developers, came to the Bahamas. They fell in love with the beauty of the ocean, so much that in 1988 they joined with FranÃ§ois Sperry, a world-renowned French architect, to design and develop Sandyport. Hugh Buckner decided on the name Sandyport not because of the powdery white sands at the beaches, but in honor of his wife Sandy.
