“Secluded beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2013

This is one of my favorite beaches. Hard to get to but worth the drive. I have only ever seen one other person on the beach when I have been there and he was a local fisherman.

“Most beautiful beach I've visited”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2013

The road to Captain's Bay was a little treacherous and you definitely need 4-wheel drive for certain stretches, but the journey is well worth it. We had this beautiful beach to ourselves for the day. The crashing waves and strong tide make it dangerous to do anything more than wade into the water, but it also makes for a striking backdrop. This beach is on my "must visit" list for any return trip to Anguilla.

“This beach is a little hard to get to and you should be aware of the possibility of rip tides.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2012

Most secluded beach on the island. Packed a lunch, brought a bottle of Champagne and a beach umbrella and had the entire place to ourselves all day.

“Savannah Beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2012

This is a spectacular beach. Very rugged and can be windy. You only want to walk it then. However when calm it is beautiful swimming and snorkeling. Notg the easiest beach to get to and the roads down to it require a four wheel drive vehicle and even then it is a fun ride!!! However well worth the effort when you get there. Has a couple of little lagoon areas at each end of this enormous stretch of sand. Good for the little ones. One small casual bar/restaurant at one end. Not always open though.

“Inacessible”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 29, 2012

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?)
