We made two trips to the Sunshine Shack in our two week stay and loved it! It is the best spot on Rendezvous Bay as you can sit right next to the water. One of the few places they don't charge for chairs but don't miss the barbecue. It beats the top rated barbecue in the Valley hands down. Ribs... More

Looking for the best kept secret in Anguilla? That would be Garvey's Sunshine Shack on Rendevous Bay. What makes it special? Garvey's famous ribs, chicken, and snapper grilled to perfection, with the most amazing West Indian seasonings. The drinks - Garvey's BBCs (Banana Bailey's Colada),Pineapple Margaritas, and Rum Punch are my favorites. The staff - Garvey and his staff work... More

Garvey is the man to see on Rendezvous Bay. All the food comes from the grill behind the seating and the beers come from a cooler. Does it take a while to get your food? A little, but hey, you're sitting on a beach in Anguilla! Where else do you have to be? And the food is worth it. We... More

Give Garvey a call the day before to see what's on the menu. Show up late morning, grab a couple of chairs and a drink and go for a swim while Garvey & his crew handle the hard work. The beach is perfect as well as the bay. The rum punch is homemade and powerful; the best. By the time... More

We loved the location on the best beach in Anguilla. The location was up close and personal. The food was fresh and cooked to order. The only down side was we would have liked a nicer bathroom but it served the purpose for beach shack

Yes, like other reviewers, the food is very good here but expect to wait one hour + to eat. What in the world was taking so long? The ribs were already on the grille when we arrived and the staff seemed like the wait was their M.O. Oh well. Once we DID finally receive our food, it was excellent and... More

We really enjoyed the food and atmosphere at the sunshine shack. We wanted "island food" and we're totally satisfied with our snapper and vegetarian plate that Garvey made. We arrived right around noon and we're the first customers. Garvey wasn't ready yet so we. Had drinks. The BBC cocktail is delicious. Only problem was that it took so long for... More

We've been visiting Anguilla since 2009 and decided to try this place out based on the reviews. I'll start by pointing out that I'm very familiar with "island time". In fact, it one of the things we love about visiting Anguilla but waiting over two hours for a dry piece of snapper goes well beyond the boundaries of my patience.... More

Very cool beach bar vibe with live reggae music and beach bonfire to dance around. The best place to chill out in the evening.
