So Gwen's has moved, as you can see in other reviews. No more hammocks, but the beach is still really inviting. We really enjoy the food at Gwen's. It is casual and relaxing with the reggae. We always make a point to go to Gwen's when we visit Anguilla.

This was my favorite stop on our recent trip to St Maarten and Angullia. Not only was the beach scenery amazing but the food was delicious. Last but certainly not least I loved loved loved the reggae band - one of the best I've ever heard. :)

We stopped here in the afternoon for drinks and just to chill out on the beach. We didn't have any food .. only adult beverages. But the staff was extremely fun and quick. The chairs/umbrellas on the beach were free -- at least for us as we were the only people there. It was low season and there weren't many... More

We wanted to go to Shoal Bay so we took an excursion from St. Maarten. We knew the beach would be wonderful and included in our excursion was lunch at Gwen's which we knew nothing about. We enjoyed a fantastic Snapper lunch which included several local side dishes and all were delicious. The Rum Punch is pretty darn good too.... More

Best place at Shoal Bay and a must visit if you are in Anguilla or close by. Gwen and Junior go out of their way to make you feel welcome and the staff is excellent. I can only speak for the ribs and the rum punch (good, cold beer too), and they are great. In all my travels, I have... More

Quote of the week "Even the coleslaw is excellent!! Went twice during our stay. Both time the fish was fresh and the sides great. The side pasta is so good they sell it in bulk to take home. You can't beat the view. Cutest bathrooms I have ever used!

I had a wonderful time eating lunch on the beach. I loved the entertainment ! However the food wasn't that great. I had to purchase food right after we left the restaurant because I was still hungry. They definitely get 3 stars from me.

We tried the rum punch wherever we went and Gwen's were definitely the best! It's a cute beach bar with good food, a beautiful stretch of beach, and friendly service. We went twice; the second time on a Sunday for the live music by the Scratch Band. It was a highlight of our stay on the island. Serious fun and... More

Went to Gwen's on Sunday afternnon when there is live Reggae music by the Scratch Band and it was great. I don't think they took a break and even got a spot cleared so everyone could get up to dance and have fun. We made a few trips to Gwen's, the beach is great, it's clean and bright and she... More

Everything looks great. The new bathrooms are in. They have a roof over the large deck which holds a lot of people for dancing and dining. Miss the hammocks but what do you do? lol Had a couple of burgers and they were great. Scratch band was fun as always. Good times were had by all.
