One of the prettier beaches on Anguilla, a long crescent of soft white sand. Another drawing card is Smokey's. Like many beach bars, they offer free beach lounging chairs and umbrellas if you stay for lunch which we did. Menu was typical beach bar, but the food was reasonably priced and very well prepared. There was live music in the... More

This is a beautiful beach that appears to be mostly used by locals. Smokey's does wonderful coconut shrimp and is not picky about customers wearing shoes. The wind and current direction deliver lots of good shells and driftwood to this beach, so it's a wonder for beachcombers. A great place to relax or snorkel and catch a glimpse of stingrays.

Beach Restaurant, with couches and sun loungers. Fine white sand. Prestine, turquoise water. Absolutely Gorgeous!

if you want to have a quiet beach thing, cove bay is the place for you, either you bring your own towel and settle anywhere on the beach or get a chair from smokey's, if you eat or drink there, then you do not need to pay for the chair.....

Cove Bay is my favorite beach on Anguilla. A great view of St. Martin, quiet, secluded, and it is home to Smokey's on the Cove!

We spent two days here in June. It was extremely quiet, even on Saturday. We stopped at Smokey's, which was perfect. We used their beach chairs and enjoyed the water. There appears to be nothing else on this beach, so you can find a quiet place if you want.

The main picture posted is not of Cove Bay - the picture is of Cove Castles which is on Shoal Bay West. Cove Bay is a pretty good beach - it is shallow and calm, good for children. There is a small restaurant - Smokey's at the Cove which is open for lunch and dinner and has entertainment every day... More

Although it is very difficult to choose I regard this as my favourite beach in Anguilla and always visit every time I return to the Island

This is a great beach to swim. The water is calm and you can walk out a fair ways before you can't touch the bottom. The umbrellas are only complimentary if you eat at the restaurant but the chair guy said just give him whatever tip you want. Be careful with that. Make sure that the chair guy doesn't double...
