Meads Bay



High-Class Beach

Meads Bay is the ultimate Anguilla beach experience, and its purity, simplicity and reputation as a world-class beach brings travelers from all over the world.

The sandy stretch is adorned with coral formations, rocks and lush plant life, making it easy on the eyes and a superb place to enjoy a little swimming or snorkeling.

Soft Sand, Stunning Sunrise

With cerulean waters and soft, white sand, Meads Bay is the perfect spot to witness a dreamy sunrise. The earlier you go, the more likely you’ll be to have the beach to yourself.

As the day continues and more travelers converge, venture to the more secluded east end of the beach to enjoy a little personal space. Explore nearby caves or simply set up your rental chair and relax under the sun.


If you’re a bargain traveler, look elsewhere—Meads Bay is not an inexpensive place. Perhaps that’s how it keeps such a low profile.

In any case, you can avoid expensive flights by flying instead to St. Martin and taking a 20-minute ferry ride to Anguilla.

Plan to visit the island between May and August if you’d like to score a great hotel rate. And if you want to eat at one of the beach’s excellent restaurants, be ready to drop a pretty penny on it.

But at least there will be no communication worries: English is the official language on the island.
