We had lunch twice here which was very good. You can use the sunbeds if you are dining. The beach is good and lots of breeze so not too hot.

Cove bay is an isolated beach with no structure. If you are looking for a quiet place, this is it.....

This was the most beautiful beach I have ever been to. We went to Shoal bay as well, and didn't feel like Shoal was worth the hype. Cove Bay is quiet and underrated. The view of St. Martin in the background is beautiful! I would recommend spending a day here while in Anguilla.

The beach was beautiful and uncrowded. Smokey's has local music and great food. The view of St. Martin is fantastic.

Smokey's is at the Cove. A great hang out spot! We usually travel to this quiet restaurant to grab a bite and head back to our hotel room.

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!...
