While we only made it to 3 beaches on Anguilla, we have been to over a dozen other islands and I have to say that Meads Bay makes the top 5. White sand, crystal clear water, good bars/restaurants and NO crowds. Nestled between the Viceroy and Maliouhanna, there is no where else I'd rather spend the day. Enjoy lunch and... More

On May 1, 2015 the cruise ship we (my 15 year old son and I) were vacationing on docked in St Maarten. I had done lots of reading here on trip advisor about Anguilla so I decided to do a self-guided excursion to Anguilla. We utilized taxis to get from the cruise ship pier to the public ferry terminal in... More

Great stretch of beach.... Just find a place that has sunbeds and umbrellas.... They place we liked was part of the hotel and reserved only for guests, but further along you can get. Fab sea... And some nice places to have lunch.

Especially the very right part of the beach, where there is a kind of reserved spot after the stone... Very clean, transparent water, sandy bottom.

This is a very beautiful beach. The water is warm and turquoise and always great for swimming. You can walk along the beach, eat at one of the many great restaurants too. Overall, one of Anguilla's best beaches.

Meads has been rough the past couple of years we visited but this year the water wasn't too bad. This beach is awesome for walking, lounging and swimming. We hung out at Blanchard's, their chairs require a $5 deposit but you end up only paying $3 when you return the tag they give you with the deposit (worth every penny).... More

Meads Bay is located in the west end of the island on the north side. The area hosts a couple of high to mid-range hotels, great restaurants and not surprisingly some pretty nice villas. Sand Quality: The sand is of very high quality, an off white to light brown colour, soft in texture, does not become exceedingly hot except on... More

Loved the beauty, beach bars, and long beach to walk. We didn't get in the water at all though - waves were angry. We had fun watching the waves and drinking cocktails. It's nice that many places allow free use of beach chairs after purchasing a drink. It was very easy to find parking.

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...
