“Great beach, great lunch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2014

One of the prettier beaches on Anguilla, a long crescent of soft white sand. Another drawing card is Smokey's. Like many beach bars, they offer free beach lounging chairs and umbrellas if you stay for lunch which we did. Menu was typical beach bar, but the food was reasonably priced and very well prepared. There was live music in the afternoon. Hint: get there early to get the best beach chairs and spots on the beach.

“Stingrays and Smokeys!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2014

This is a beautiful beach that appears to be mostly used by locals. Smokey's does wonderful coconut shrimp and is not picky about customers wearing shoes. The wind and current direction deliver lots of good shells and driftwood to this beach, so it's a wonder for beachcombers. A great place to relax or snorkel and catch a glimpse of stingrays.

“beautiful and peaceful beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 16, 2013

if you want to have a quiet beach thing, cove bay is the place for you, either you bring your own towel and settle anywhere on the beach or get a chair from smokey's, if you eat or drink there, then you do not need to pay for the chair.....
