We were the only two people on the Shoal Bay beach late in the afternoon of our arrival to Anguilla. It was a great spot to walk in the sand and take a little swim after a day of traveling. There really is no better way to get into vacation mode than your own private beach.

I really enjoy Cove Bay, but not for the beach. The restaurant "Smokey's" sits on Cove Bay and it is one of my favorites. They have seating out on their deck which is pretty close to the ocean or you can eat inside. They have pretty much every drink I love, including bushwhackers which are hard to find in Anguilla!...

This is a beautiful beach with terrific views. Arrived by boat on the Funseaker trip from St Martin to Anguilla to eat at the local restaurant, Smokey's. Eating lunch there allows use of the beach chairs. So this is a great little stopping off place.

One of the prettier beaches on Anguilla, a long crescent of soft white sand. Another drawing card is Smokey's. Like many beach bars, they offer free beach lounging chairs and umbrellas if you stay for lunch which we did. Menu was typical beach bar, but the food was reasonably priced and very well prepared. There was live music in the... More

This is a beautiful beach that appears to be mostly used by locals. Smokey's does wonderful coconut shrimp and is not picky about customers wearing shoes. The wind and current direction deliver lots of good shells and driftwood to this beach, so it's a wonder for beachcombers. A great place to relax or snorkel and catch a glimpse of stingrays.

Beach Restaurant, with couches and sun loungers. Fine white sand. Prestine, turquoise water. Absolutely Gorgeous!

if you want to have a quiet beach thing, cove bay is the place for you, either you bring your own towel and settle anywhere on the beach or get a chair from smokey's, if you eat or drink there, then you do not need to pay for the chair.....

Cove Bay is my favorite beach on Anguilla. A great view of St. Martin, quiet, secluded, and it is home to Smokey's on the Cove!

We spent two days here in June. It was extremely quiet, even on Saturday. We stopped at Smokey's, which was perfect. We used their beach chairs and enjoyed the water. There appears to be nothing else on this beach, so you can find a quiet place if you want.
