Meads Bay is not to be missed when in Anguilla, and I can see why a lot of people consider it their favorite beach on the island. When we think back on our vacay, we will think about days spent eating at Blanchard's Beach Shack, renting chairs out front (for just $3/chair!), and walking Meads Bay. It's probably the busiest...

You must go here. It has many restaurants and even some caves to take pictures in front of them, that,s it, at the end of the beach. Look for them. They are awsome!

This beach is beautiful, uncrowded , and the water is great! We rented a hobie and sailed, rented chairs and umbrella from Blanchards and had a great day. Happy we chose this location as those that went to shall bay from our ship said it was crowded.

Took the ferry over from St. Martin for the day. Had visited Shoal on our last visit so went to Meads Bay this time. Beautiful wide white sand beach. Had a wonderful lunch at StrawHat. Wonderful, friendly and attentive service. Fun day!

Great wonderful long beach ! 4 and not 5 because if you know Anguilla you have very high standards of comparison regarding the sea. This is fantastic, no doubt, but there are other 2 - 3 places on the island that are a real paradise for the colour of the water and the snorkeling. But the beach is the top... More

A mile of soft white sand in a crescent shape--beautifully serene and quiet at this time of year. Almost no one on the beach at 8 AM--a great way to start the day.
