All 33 Anguilla beaches are incredible. Each TA member will offer their personal fav and the reason why it is.

Personally, I can narrow it to top five each for a different reason. In no particular order:

Maundy's Bay

Shoal and Upper Shoal Bay

Cove Bay

Rendezvous Bay

Junk's Hole

Windward Point

Shoal Bay West

Sandy Ground

Mead's Bay

Oops, I've already gone over 5....

Maunday's Bay on Anguilla! Turks and Caicos has great beaches too, however they are a bit too crowded for our taste.

I have been to St. Lucia and Tortola--the beaches do not even come close to Anguilla beaches.

Best beaches I have ever seen, comparing HI, Mexico, Austrailia, VZ, USVI.

Truly amazing, and each one has its own personality.

Love them all.

I love Meads Bay Beach mainly because it is right outside the place that we stay in April! I am usually amazed at how few people are on the beach at any one time even with Viceroy looming over one end. We do beach walks several times a day when we are there and it is rare to run into more than several other beach-walkers.

Maunday's Bay takes the #1 spot followed closely by Bayahibe in the Dominican Republic at Casa de Campo, followed by Coco Point Lodge in Barbuda, followed by Maroma near Cancun.

Hmmm. I love the beaches on Anguilla, but unlike many of the above opinions, I generally prefer the lush mountainous backdrop of the more cove-like beaches found on the volcanic islands--like those of Grenada, St. Lucia, and the various Virgins. That being said, not a single one of those many beautiful beaches is as lovely to me as Shoal Bay East on Anguilla.

On Anguilla, my favorites are Shoal Bay East, Cove Bay, Shoal Bay West, Barnes, and Rendezvous, in descending order.
