We had visited Garvey on St. Patrick's day in 2016 while on a catamaran trip from SXM. Our lunch was included with the trip, so we did not eat at SSS that day. We had drinks, loved the vibe there, and enjoyed meeting Garvey, who is a great ambassador for AXA. We were lucky to be able to return to... More

We visited SSS in December 2016 while staying in Anguilla. This beach shack has spectacular views with the funky Caribbean vibe we really love. Garvey is a dear soul and is a great ambassador for Anguilla. The food is a bit small for the price in our opinion. We got the chicken and ribs. The food tastes good, but there... More

Great beach bar. Came here for drinks at the end of the day. They have a few tables and some chairs on the beach. Laid-back atmosphere, friendly staff.

We have known Garvey (the owner) for many years so I like to visit. The last few years we have sampled his bar-b-que ribs and chicken which are excellent (his grilled lobster also got raves from people at the next table). The restaurant is literally a bunch of picnic tables on the beach. The atmosphere is pure fun and a... More

The most amazing little place on the island. Really hard to get to by car. Amazing drinks and food. The owner named Garvey is a great entertainer.

The ribs and coleslaw was delicious. The beach was amazing, family friendly as the beach is shallow and better for children to play in. The atmosphere of the sunshine shack is always lovely, the staff friendly and the place is clean.

So, this place is on the very scenic and popular beach in Rendezvous beach. It's a small shack and offers BBQ - chicken and ribs and fish. I got there for lunch at 1 pm and the fish was sold out! Surprising for an island! I ordered the chicken, which was a very small portion - including a paltry amount... More
