Booked a day trip through our hotel so we didn't have to think and do much but just get to the semi-private charter boat by SXM. The company that took care of us was Funtime, and they indeed insured us a fun time! Ferry ride was 30 minutes and bus ride from Blowing Point to Tropical Sunset was 30 minutes... More

I spent 5 days on Anguilla & Shoal Bay Beach would have to be the highlight of my time there. This beach is beyond superb...The colour of the water is breathtaking, the sand such a lovely white. Total heaven!

Took a day trip to Anguilla and so happy we did, The water is amazing and so clear. It is something you have to see to understand its beauty. We snorkeled from the shore and had lunch at one of the restaurants on the beach..Cant wait to visit there again.

At the time I visited this location, it was rated the number 1 beach in the world by the Travel Channel! Well it was indeed! If you are looking for tranquility and bliss, then Shoal Bay is the place to be!

Shoal Bay is one of the most beautiful beaches. There is a little bit of building going on, but it is a very rustic, relaxed place. The restaurants are very good. If you want to relax on the beach, this is a great place.

This is not a well developed area and can be tricky to figure out so my suggestion for the best spot is Tropical Sunset Uncle Ernies (see reviews on T/A which is on a beautiful stretch on the lower part of the beach and is the best of the food and beach bars on the beach. They offer free parking,... More

Spent an incredible day at this beautiful white sand beach! Absolutely worth the trek from Marigot, even with the slightly rough ferry ride over. We split a taxi with a lovely couple from Europe and the driver gave us a bit of a tour along the way, arranged a pickup time, and got us set up with chairs and umbrellas... More

Worth the ferry expense from Marigot. By far the most beautiful beach we saw while visiting Both islands of St Maarten & Anguilla. Around $60 round trip including taxes for the ferry per person and another $52 in cab fare. $12 for two chairs, umbrella and table. Couple of great beach bars.
