This was one of our favorite places to eat during our two weeks in Anguilla. The grilled chicken and pork were great. They also serve drinks. We arrived about 12:30 p.m. and ordered. For an hour while the grill was prepared and lunch was cooked, we enjoyed the sun, the wonderful beach and great drinks. About 1:30 our food arrived.... More

We literally stumbled onto The Sunshine Shack and man am I glad we did. When you get to it, you will think that you are lost, this means that you are almost there! Great atmosphere as its literally a shack on the beach. The food is to die for and the beer is excellent. The guys who run it are... More

My husband and I visited SunShine Shack in January. First of all, it is NOT located in The Valley, as its listing indicates. It is located on Rendezvous Bay. We have visited many beach bar/restaurants in our travels, and how this place ranks as the #2 restaurant on the island escapes us entirely. Not sure if this is always the... More

There's no other beach bar on Anguilla to compare with the perfectly-named Sunshine Shack. Awesome location, funky/upbeat ambiance, authentic beach bbq (great ribs!), good music, and Garvey sets the perfect, friendly tone. We had a great visit and yet Garvey kept apologizing for being short-staffed that day and wanted to make sure we had a good visit. Don't miss the... More

The location of this little bbq beach shack is amazing on rendezvous bay so you can't go wrong if you happen to be on the beach and need some food or drink. I would not specifically though come out here to eat at the restaurant. The meat was good and tender but the sides seemed old and stale. They had... More

We arrived for lunch at noon but they had just begun in getting the grill going. There were no loungers available so we sat on our towels to enjoy the beach and and the fabulous reggae music. After a while a gentlemen approached us and said two loungers had opened up and asked for $20. At about the same time... More

The ribs were fall off the bone, the drinks were tasty, the service was good. When the bill came I learned they only take cash. I was not carrying cash with me on this particular adventure. This could have been an extremely awkward situation but Garvey the owner turned it into the most impressive, classy and trusting experience I've had... More
