Plenty of Anguilla vacationers have never heard of the musician Bankie Banx or his beachside restaurant and lounge, Dune Preserve. So consider making an evening trip to this Rendezvous Bay hot spot to get acquainted. After a successful music and touring career as a reggae artist, native Anguillan Banx returned home to open this marquee live music spot. The ramshackle-themed venue receives plenty of lunchtime traffic from the nearby beach's sunbathers (visit the website for lunch and dinner hours), but you should visit in the evening. Several nights a week Banx takes to the stage to entertain his patrons. Sometimes he's joined on stage by famous friends like Jimmy Buffett, Marcia Griffiths and Gregory Issacs.
According to travelers, Dune Preserve is definitely worth experiencing; however, visitors do warn that prices for drinks are a bit steep here. The Dune Preserve is open Tuesday through Sunday.
You can catch the soulful sounds of Bankie Banx and other live artists on most Wednesday, Friday and Sunday nights. Also, consider visiting Anguilla in late March, when Banx and Dune Preserve host the annual Moonsplash Music Festival.
