This is a spectacularly beautiful beach with silky fine white sand. The water is crystal clear so it is great for snorkeling. We went to 10 Caribbean islands. This was our favorite beach. The food at the beach cafe was excellent. The sauteed conch was cooked to perfection and run punch was delicious, not too sweet.

We were in Saint Maarten and took a 75 minutes boat trip to Anguilla. After a city tour on an air conditioned bus, we went to Shoal Bay. The beach is gorgeous, white sands with turquoise water. We had lunch at the waterfront restaurant and the food and service were very good.

Shoal Bay East is one of our favorites. Such a beautiful beach with many cool spots to eat or just get away from it all.

Beautiful beach view!! The food was pretty good. I got the fillet snapper sandwich and it was delicious. The bill was a little bit more than expected, but reasonable. I would recommend this place! Staff was extremely nice as well.

Stayed at Zemi Beach Resort. Lounged on the beach, soaked up the sun and played in the sand at Shoal Bay.

This is an absolutely gorgeous beach to spend a day on. The water is ice blue and it is easy to spend your day floating your day away. There are a few restaurants to explore as well.
