Watch the crystal clear waters wash the sparkling white sands as you enjoy a refreshing cocktail in the comforting shade of your umbrella.

It is all about the location

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

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.
