This is a sad case of disappearing beach. Strong winds in the first two weeks of March resulted in a large influx of seaweed on a lot of beaches (Sandy Hill also). On Savanna, which is the most exposed in Anguilla, the whole mile long shore (which is hardly swimmable anyway) was covered with about a foot of decaying weed,... More

Don't let the tales of the mile long trek over a dirt and rock strewn track to this bay deter you. You don't need a jeep to get there and you will be rewarded with a jem of a bay ! Both days of our trip to Savanna Bay we had the bay to ourselves and enjoyed snorkeling and walking... More

What a GORGEOUS beach! It is a bit difficult to get it and yes, there is some litter. But it didn't spoil a thing for us. To find a beach like this, virtually uninhabited, is just unheard of. Worth the bouncy roads :)

Savannah Bay is quiet and very beautiful. To top it off, you have Nat's Palm Grove Restaurant there for some of the best ribs and johnny cakes on the island! Watch out for Nat's hot sauce!

Savanna Bay is a beach to be relaxed. Very few people around, white sand, calm waters, you and the sun. There are some rocks at the north end where you can see some good underwater creatures if you like snorkeling. Also, in the middle of the bay, like 20 meters off shore, there is a big rock formation and few... More

I have visited Anguilla now six times, this year was the first time to this beach. Of the 33 on the island I would rate it in the top four. Nat's Place, the Bar Grill there is great and Nat is such a nice pleasant guy

The road is long and bumpy, go slow and you will be fine. Go out to see the kite surfers, those guys are fearless.

The beaches seemed crowded (for Anguilla), especially Shoal Bay. We chose Savanna since the surf was quieter which made snorkeling that much more fun (you could see better). Reef is not far from shore and it's not commercial at all - there is one small restaurant. The road to the beach is very bumpy and unpaved but it's all part... More
