My apologies, I wasn't clear. The riddler indicates that the island is "all flat sand", no rock, no coral, no caves etc. like assumption island. So, Yes, I'm confident ocean islands can have sandy beaches, but that isn't what is described in the text.

My point is that an "all flat sand" island would not likely be in deep ocean but rather in fairly shallow water. Therefore, if it is in shallow water, I assumed, if in the ocean, it would have significant tides.

Again my knowledge of tides in shallow areas of the ocean where sand islands could exist is not strong, but I assume they would have noticeable tides.
