My friend who lives on the neighboring island of St Maarten stressed that we had to visit this beach. What can I say....the beauty of this place was not underwhelming. If you walk to the right end of the beach there is a secluded part divided by a rock heap which was easy to climb over. It was away from... More

A beautiful long white Sand beach. It is clean, rarely crowded, with crystal clear blue green water. There are readily available chairs or buy a tasty one from the shack. There are restroom facilities nearby for changing or restrooms. Recommend highly.

We stayed on Shoal Bay but decided to spend a day here on Meads Bay. We drove over and set up in front of Blanchards on their lounges--we were not charged. We did have lunch and drinks at Blanchards. The beach is beautiful with soft white sand and a nice long sweep. We walked the beach from the rocks to... More

Great beach, but they are all good on Anguilla. Meads bay has the widest stretch of sand on the island. There is a public access point by Malli. where you can park and walk right out onto the sand.

Meads Bay is amazing, the beach is beautiful, the water is incredible hombre blue. The water is so clear you can see the fish as they swim up to and around you, amazing way to spend the day floating around in the ocean. PS: Don't forget your sunscreen and put it on often even if you are sitting under the... More

Soft sand and clear water. This was first my first visit to Anguilla and I stayed on Meads bay. Hopefully I can return and check out some of the other beaches.

We "lived" for 8 glorious days on Angilla in February of 2017. After many weeks of researching beaches and restaurants, we took our first 3 days to travel to 10 of the island's 33 beaches, and then repeated our favorite 2 beaches the remainder of our time on the island. Meads Bay took first place for us! It's long, beautiful,... More

Simply gorgeous. Beautiful water, soft sand, just perfect. I really, really love this beach. We weren't staying on Meads Bay but came over a couple of days when it was quite windy on Rendevous Bay (which is where we were staying). Now, it was still windy on Meads, but not nearly as windy--you could still lounge, walk the beach or... More

This was our fifth visit to Anguilla. Although there are many beautiful beaches, our favourite is Meads Bay. The sand is white and soft and the waters are crystal clear. Add to this, many popular and great restaurants line the beach. Breakfast, lunch and dinner can be had while gazing at the beauty of Meads Bay. Although very popular, it... More

Very nice beach, white sand. Water was a bit rough when we went. There are a few restaurants on the beach and you can rent chairs. Not too many people.
