You should definitely visit Sandy growing while travelling to Anguilla as everything is happening there. There are lots of great restaurants and bars where you can hang out either the day or the night. The beach is beautiful too

I will always love Sandy Ground. The beach is so incredibly beautiful, quiet and calm. It is so serene and relaxing. However, what was once the nightlife hotspot that has always been fun with lots of people dancing the street on a Thursday night, bouncing between the Pumphouse and Elvis's is now a thing of the past. Elvis's and the... More

Small little village. There were a few little spots we grabbed a drink to and from our excursion over to Sandy Island. Dad's was a nice spot to grab a drink after our day on Sandy Island. Otherwise.... not a place you need to spend much time.

We were only in Anguilla for a few days on a boat charter and this seemed to be the most "happenin'" little area. We stopped in Johno's and Elvis'... Some tourists and locals. They were pretty laid back when we were there. Dads place was hopping later but it seemed mostly locals and I saw lots of "twerking" for my... More

The beach is full of great bars and restaurants and many have chairs to use so you can spend some quality beach time. The beach is safe for swimming. Find a bar you like and watch the sunset.There is also a few late night places like Elvis to spend the evening.

Sandy Ground is an amazing Beach on the central area of Anguilla near the Valley. It is framed by cliffs at either end, beautiful clear water and a calm surf. The area is peppered with restaurants and a few shops. One restaurant of note is Roy' Bayside Bar and Grill (see separate review)

it's where a lot of the cruise ships come in but they have to dock father away because the water is pretty shallow at the dock. that's good because it makes the beach area great for swimming and the water is free of any debris. there are a few restaurants there but only dad's has beach chairs, so bring a...

This is beach with commercial stuff. Many good restaurants and with a nice view. If just hanging out on beach only there are many other beaches worth your time.
