We had one MAJOR problem with the Sun Shine Shack: we didn't find it until our last day on the island! Truly, if you only had one day to spend in Anguilla, this is where I'd tell you to spend it. What everyone says is true: Rendezvous Bay is unbelievably gorgeous, Garvey (the owner) is the nicest guy you'll meet... More

Garvey's Sun Shine Shack is a Caribbean experience you do not want to miss. A hand crafted shack right on the beach featuring ribs, chicken and a local fish cooked on a open grill, doesn't get any better for a great relaxing afternoon on a Caribbean beach. You get the feeling at Garvey's that you are the only people on... More

Resounding success in service businesses is frequently a result of finding just the right formula - a blend of factors that results in a perfect storm of happiness for consumers of that service. Everyone has their own idea of what that perfect storm of happiness is for them, but we found ours at Garvey's Sunshine Shack on Rendezvous Bay. Our... More

We walked by while it was closed and said thus looks like a fun place to eat with a great view. We returned the next day and the food was great too.

Be sure to stop by this fun, lighthearted shack when on Anguilla and let Garvey bring some (more) sunshine into your day...even in the rain he is upbeat and welcoming. Both his snapper and ribs are the best!

This is just the type of place one would think of when they visit the Caribbean. Set right on the beach it features a beach shack, tables and a outdoor grill for cooking ribs, chicken and a local fish. Garvey is the "Man" and makes your visit a most enjoyable one.

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
