If you are in Anguilla, you must visit Meads Bay. My husband and I stayed in St. Maarten and took the ferry from Marigot over to Anguilla for a day. We were initially leaning towards visiting Shoal Bay, but our taxi driver convinced us that Meads Bay offered a better location. Lined with several restaurants, Meads Bay Beach is absolutely... More

I almost cringe giving this 5 stars because it might make more people go to this beach and most of the charm is that it isn't crowded. I also far prefer the snorkelling here (at the east end of the beach near Carimar) to Shoal Bay which I think is overrated (call me dumb if you want...). This beach also... More

Anguilla lacks nothing in terms of beautiful beaches. Some of these beaches have beautiful white sand as fine as baby powder and some are rocky. Some are calm and some are a bit rougher. Some are flat and some are surrounded by cliffs. Indeed, the variety of Anguilla's beaches is incredible given the size of this tiny island. Having been... More

My favorite beach for a few reasons. I though Shoal Bay East would be my favorite, perhaps Meads was my favorite because we were staying on Meads. The water is clear and gorgeous, just like all the beaches, but I liked how Mead wasn't crowded, but yet it had many places to walk to, if you got bored. Try Blanchard's... More

The title sums it up… this is our most favorite beach…anywhere! The sand is soft and white, the water is blue and clear. There are great restaurants. It's not crowded. What more can i say?!

I have always heard shoal bay was the best beach in Anguilla. Shoal is a stunning beach but meads bay is a show stopper. We caught it on a calm day and it was one of the top white sand beaches I've been to. I'm a seasoned traveler. Crystal clear water, white sand, great snorkeling. Best beach in Anguilla hands... More

We ate at the Straw Hat restaurant, which had great food. The water & beach were pristine. The staff at Straw Hat were very friendly and prompt.
