Garvey's Sun Shine Shack is the place to be on Rendezvous Bay! The ultimate beach experience! Garvey welcomes you with beach chairs, umbrellas, barbecue, rum drinks, Rolling Rock, reggae music, and his infectious smile and personality! Irie, Mon!

Just came back from wonderful trip to Anguilla. Loved the island and all its restaurants but was always happiest at the Sun Shine Shack. Had the chicken/ribs combo dinner and it was the best meal of the trip. There is a wait for it but who would ever be in a rush in Anquilla? The beach is beautiful and lounges... More

You cannot beat the location or how lovely the staff was. Food was just okay - BBQ chicken really nice, ribs a bit dry - Do not order lobster - over priced and somewhat disappointing. We went on a Sunday expecting there to be music but this was not the case - corn hole made do!

Great food, drinks, music, and the best beach in Anguilla (well, besides Cap Jaluca, where you certainly can't rent a beach chair and umbrella!).

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
