WOW! All I can say is what a spectacular place. The most beautiful, pristine beach I has ever been to. The water is so crystal clear that you can see your toes even when you're shoulders deep. The white sand is like baking powder it's so fine. $20 for 4 beach chairs and 2 umbrellas seemed reasonable to me. A... More

Love the white pristine sand. Very secluded because roads to it are, challenging. No one there so will not have to compete for space. $10 for chairs and umbrella. Three mediocre bars with food. Nice bathroom. If staying on the island, go. If not, not worth $80 per couple for tickets on ferry, $26 per couple in fees, and taxis... More

How can one resist the white-sand beaches, clear warm waters and even warmer locals? Think 33 beautiful beaches, sunset horseback rides, tropical birds and a whole wonderland underwater and its easy to see why romance blooms easily in this arena. We found perfect seclusion at Shoal Bay where 1.7 km stretch of pure white sand and aqua-marine water is a... More

You will fall in love with this beach. Soft sand, soft waves and warm water. It does not get any better than this! DO NOT miss this beach.

This is one of those places you look at and just can't believe it actually exists. Def one of the most beautiful beaches I have even been in . Water was calm enough for little kids , sand was so white. Pictures do not do justice of this beauty .

Stayed in SXM but wanted to go to Anguilla for the day. Ended up at Elodias in Shoal Bay. We arrived around 11 and the place was practically empty. A few local families. Got 2 chairs and an umbrella for $10. The water is just gorgeous and calm. The sand is so soft. I could have spent hours in the... More

There are no words to describe the beauty of this beach. The water is clear, the sand is white and the fish are beautiful and colorful. Great place for snorkeling. The food is full of flavor. Don't forget to have the rum punch.

I'm speaking about Shoal Bay East, not West. Great water, great seafood restaurants, great beach. Not a long beach for walking, but the water is just dazzling. If you don't stay on this beach during your stay, you should visit it. Try to find a way to avoid the $5 parking charge to visit this beach. I think it's disgusting.... More

If you go early in the morning you have the pristine white beach all to yourself! Its an exceptionally beautiful beach which will take your breath away. When you hit the beach go right , to get away from large groups of people. Good snorkelling too... Many reefs. Also a few boats offering their services.... Beds are cheap to rent,... More
