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

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...

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!
