Absolutely breathtaking.

During low season, this place is so quiet. We enjoyed lunch on the beach and rented chairs and an umbrella. The water is completely clear, and the sand is white. Best beach.

Shoal Bay was very calm and relaxing with flavorful food to eat alongside on the beach which was a great treat.

We took the ferry over from Marigot and a cab to Hank's at Shoal Bay East. According to the cab driver, everything is closed except for two restaurants right now during the slow season. Hank's offered free umbrellas and chairs if you purchased lunch. We told them we'd purchase lunch in a few hours and accessed the chairs immediately. Lunch... More

This beach is amazing, and we enjoyed spending our day there. We ate at the Tropical Sunset Restaurant and Bar and kudos to everyone who worked there. Lovely and the most friendly people. Would love to visit again.

Without doubt, it's the best and most beautiful beach I know. (and I know plenty!) Do not mistake with Shoal Bay West, also in Anguilla.

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.
