I recently had dinner there and can't say enough about it - so much so that we went back for lunch the next day. The shack doesn't look like much upon initial view, but Garvey (the owner / chef) is super nice and an amazing chef. The lobster was perfect and the red snapper & chicken were almost... read more

Great BBQ and a wonderful setting make this a home-run when in Anguilla. Rendevous Bay is truly beautiful and one of our favorite beaches in Anguilla. You can relax in loungers, swim with the fishes, drink the day away and eat some delicious BBQ here. Highly recommended.

Our group was tipped off to check out the sunshine shack during our day at Rendezvous Bay. You could feel the good vibes as you approached! Great music, smiling people, a rousing game of corn hole welcomed us as we arrived from walking down the beach. We didn't eat anything, just stopped for drinks. But the Painkiller was the best...

Garvey is a doll and wonderful chef. It is so fun to lounge on his chairs overlooking St. Marten. The food is wonderful and the beer cold. Don't miss a day spent here!

This was our third year on the island and we visit Garvey 2 or 3 times each year. This place has a great vibe, good food and a casual atmosphere. Oh, and the beach is wonderful. A can't miss on the island.

We spent a few hours here one afternoon having lunch, swimming and listening to some great music. The staff and the owner where excellent as was the food and drinks. The place had good energy and a fun place to spend a few hours.

My first time in Anguilla and was anxious to feel the culture. Garvey and his staff make you feel like family. The food is amazing. I had everything on the menu in my stay in the island and loved all of it. I ate at other locations and the food paled in comparison to Chef Garvey. I'll never eat anywhere... More

We happened along the beach and ran into this place. Chairs, umbrella, Red Stripe. When we got hungry, we had the grilled snapper. Great food, good music and the staff was friendly. Not easy to get to, it is out on Rondevous Beach, halfway between the Great House and the Dune Preserve. Worth the walk.

The Sunshine Shack emanates a great vibe and it is a fabulous place to relax and chill for the day. Garvey keeps it simple and that is very refreshing. With reggae music playing in the background and being located on one of the most beautiful beaches, it is one of the best places in the world to be. When you're... More
