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.

Beautiful beach...the water is so clear you can see right thru it. The sand is so nice and soft. We stayed the day at the beach and rented two chairs and umbrella for $10. We also had lunch at elodia where we enjoyed snapper and lobster. This was definitely the highlight of our trip.

If you are looking for quite, great soft sand and crystal clear water this is the beach you want. There are a few food services on the beach but can be expensive.

One of the finest beaches on Anguilla and perhaps the world. White sand, casual eats, fun watering holes, and perfect snorkeling!

Beautiful beach, coral and sand, your feet don't get hot when you walk on the sand! Water was Crisp and cool! Plenty of beach side restaurants for a nice meal and refreshing drink. We took the ferry ride over from st. Maarten, well worth the money! Here's a tip though! Get a big group together or ask people on the... More

A must do in Anguilla. The white sand takes your breath away and the calm turquoise water for swimming are simply unsurpassed!

Prettiest beach I have ever been on. Highly recommend. Can get lobster or crayfish on the shore at your pleasure. Beach chairs were ten bucks for two and an umbrella.
