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.

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...

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
