“Small Beach view of Anguilla”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 27, 2013

Small hidden beach, you have to take a back road and there are cows at the beach. My complaints are rocks on the shore but once you get through them the sand is soft and the water is very clear. It seemed that the undertoad was the strongest here also, when the waves hit the beach they come back toward the sea. We rented chairs from the place at the end of the beach b/c they had cushions. It looked like the first set of chairs and bar is where the locals hang.
The second place was expensive for drinks like $12 for a Mojito and they didnt do $1=1Euro.

Really beautiful beach! Beach had some serious waves when we went and there was a good amount of loose rocks off of the surf! Once u get out there the water was soo nice to float around in.

“Lovely beach and pretty fishes!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 13, 2013

We loved Friar's bay beach and its lovely cafes. Beach is quite and not very crowded. Locals go there on the weekend. We had our gear and we could even see more fishes than at snorkelling trail in Pinel island! Little reef only a few steps from the beach super easy to reach (right hand side of the beach, close to Friar's Bay Beach Café). Had a chance to see a morena fish! GO GO GO!

“Lovely beach with a nice cafe”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 5, 2013

Lovely beach at St. Martin and not as crowded as in the south of the island. With a nice beach side cafe for your lunch and drinks.
Worth the trip and take your swimsuit.
