“Anguilla is ranked number one world’s best all around beaches.” – The Travel Channel
Anguilla has 33 pristine beaches and over twelve miles of stunning, white powder sand and tranquil waters ranging from aquamarine to cobalt blue. Beaches of all kinds, from the long, gentle shoreline of Rendezvous Bay perfect for strolling, to the colorful beach bars that rest on the blinding white sands of Shoal Bay. The village beach of Sandy Ground welcomes fun first — home to dancing, parties and boat racing, and secluded coves such as Little Bay offer picturesque romance. The open and wild feeling of Junk’s Hole is home to the lone Palm Grove barbecue, and the bright fishing boats in Island Harbour give visitors the opportunity to witness the fishermen and the sailors of Anguilla at work. The deep plush sands of Meads Bay are home to some of the most elegant dining and hotel options and a soft rolling wave. Crocus Bay’s scenic coral cliffs are a perfect sunset location. Barnes, Maundays, Merrywing, Mimi Bay, Dropsey, Long Pond and The Forest…the list is endless.
All of Anguilla’s beaches are public, uncrowded and unspoiled. Every cove, bay and stretch of sand is marked by unique characteristics, such as rock and coral formations and picturesque tropical plants. There is a beach for everyone, for every kind of beach day, for every mood.
