I stayed at Cap Juluca and everyone said Maunday's Bay was the best beach on the island. I mean, it was wonderful, but I wasn't wowed. When I came to Shoal Bay, I just couldn't keep staring around. The view is truly outstanding and all the blue hues are enchanting. The beach itself is beautiful, and you can get in... More

The ocean was rough when we were there, but what a beautiful stretch of beach. There are a number of bars/restaurants/hotels along this strip. The sand is so white that it is blinding.

Stayed at Zemi beach resort. Fabulous. Beach is about a 30 minute walk round trip with white, sandy beach and lots of dining options. Not to be missed if you come to Anguilla.

Besides the costs to get Shoal Bay from St Maarten, it was the most amazing and most beautiful beach I have ever been to! White sands, crystal blue water and calms waves. It was so quiet and there weren't any merchants trying to sell you product. My tax driver took me to Hank's where I was able to get lunch... More

Really can't add much more than what's already been stated. We took a boat trip for the day from Marigot, St. Maarten, courtesy of SST Tours. We were met by a driver soon after we landed, and drove us to Shoal Bay and picked us up later that afternoon. We ate lunch at a restaurant on the beach and just... More

This beach has wonderful powdery sand and on most days it's quite calm making for delightful swimming. On the east end of the beach a reef is just a short distance off shore allowing easy but very rewarding snorkeling. This year alone we've seen a large ray, cuttlefish, trumpet fish, trunkfish and large schools of blue tangs ocean surgeonfish sergeant... More

While all the beaches in Anguilla are gorgeous Shoal Bay is a great beach to walk along. There are numerous bars and restaurants to stop and eat or just grab a beer. Most places rent chairs and umbrellas so you can spend the day. Madeariman and Elodias are particularly good. Elodias offers free parking as well.

We are used to travel all over the World and we have seen a lot of beautiful places and beaches but Shoal Bay and especially its eastern part is just breathtaking with its pristine turquoise blue water and its white sand... Just have a look at the rays of sunlight in this amazing water and discover the whole shades of... More
