There are a lot of bests in Anguilla. Sun Shine Shack is the best overall day time experience. The ribs are fantastic cooked slow they are tender and covered with Garvey's special sauce.
People there are just there for a good time. They lounge on beach chairs listening to music and watching the water go by. This is one of those must stop places in Anguilla.

Great location... limited menu & nothing for vegetarian or vegans.. so we ordered drinks on the sun-loungers.. pretty expensive.. it’s the location that is great about this place as the rum punches were pretty ordinary...

Thank you for your review of the SunShine Shack. We appreciate your feedback. The SSS is a small beach shack with a simple menu consisted of grilled foods - ribs, chicken, snapper, and lobster. Our ribs and lobster are 2 of our most popular dishes. At this time, we have limited menu options for vegetarians and vegans, but we do offer rice, french fries, green salad, and cole slaw. Thank you again for your visit to the SunShine Shack.

The Sunshine Shack is just what the name says. Right on a beautiful white sandy beach. The food is fresh and cooked on a open grill by the owner Garvey himself. This is a absolutely must visit while staying in Anguilla.

After going through both hurricanes we all decided to get off our rock for a real get away. We stumbled upon the SunShine Shack on dah beach. The place has been freshly rebuilt after the hurricane and is clean and beautiful!! The beach is pristine and big.. We did not have anything to eat, but did have several beverages. Great place, we will visit again May 2019!!

What a cool vibe. There isn't much to SunShine Shack. A BBQ pit, a bar, and a few tables. The service was good and the food was great. The view is damned hard to beat and the vibe is unique.

We ate for lunch. My wife and I split a chicken and ribs plate. We had 2 run punches and 4 beers. The tab was around $60 US. You won't find a bargain at Sunshine Shack, but you will find great food at an unbeatable view. The BBQ really was very good.

One thing to keep in mind: getting your food might take awhile so don't go if you're in a hurry. We were planning to head to several other beaches after Rendezvous so we could pick our spot for the following day. It took almost an hour to get our plate. Normally I'm sure people don't care since they are hanging out on the beach for the day. I just didn't expect it to take so long.
