The road to Captain's Bay is impossible for normal cars, and challenging for 4x4s. And it is now overlooked by a gigantic villa which definitely thinks it has the beach to itself (but it is unfinished, so who knows?)

“Favorite Beach in Anguilla”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 21, 2003

My husband and I spent the last two weeks of March 2003 in Anguilla. This was our first visit there. At first, we thought we made a huge mistake. The island itself is not very pretty, but the beaches are ABSOLUTELY amazing. Captain's Bay was my favorite. This beach is on the northeast part of the island on the Atlantic side. We were told the surf can be extremely rough, but we got lucky. The day we went, the surf was mild. Not a good place to snorkel. The beach itself was desolated, the sand blindingly white (as all the beaches on Anguilla are), the color of the water is a wow. You definitely need a four wheel drive to get there, but I'm telling you it's worth it. We saw dolphins swimming by. If you want to feel like you're on a deserted beach, go to Captain's Bay. You won't be disappointed.
