Cove Bay

Consider chartering a boat and setting sail for nearby Anguilla, where Cove Bay is one of the only beaches without any resort development to mar the picturesque scenery. Some helpful amenities are available in Cove Bay though, including rental sun chairs and umbrellas. Visitors should bring snorkel gear to explore the shallow, rocky reef at the east end of the bay and also be sure to make a stop at Smokey’s at the Cove to sample some of the tastiest island barbecue around.

Prickly Pear Cays

The Prickly Pear Cays are a pair of uninhabited island off the coast of Anguilla. The islands are home to unspoiled white sand beaches and little else. Visit for the day to enjoy sunbathing on pristine beaches and snorkeling along coral reefs packed with marine life.

Meads Bay

Meads Bay is a scenic strip of Anguilla beach with a number of restaurants and luxury resorts lining its sandy shores. If you’re not staying in one of the upmarket hotels that frames Meads Bay, it’s certainly worth a day trip here, with countless places to eat delicious food and soak up the sun and stunning scenery.

As soon as you enter Meads Bay, you’ll be struck by its clean, white-sand beach and clear waters. A Caribbean classic, Meads Bay can be enjoyed as part of a private speedboat tour around Anguilla’s best beaches, or as part of a sail and snorkel trip from St Maarten. If you’d rather get a bird’s-eye view of this slice of beach paradise, indulge in a 25-minute helicopter tour over all of Anguilla’s stunning beaches, plus the Pinel and Tintamarre islands.
