Little Bay#6 in Best Things To Do in Anguilla
For one of the best beach experiences, travelers suggest you sneak away to Little Bay, a cove carved into northwest Anguilla. Couples particularly enjoy snorkeling and swimming in the aquamarine water there, especially in the late afternoon as the sun sets. Recent visitors recommend getting to this beach early, as it can get crowded quickly.
Travelers used to climb down a rope ladder to get to Little Bay, but the rope ladder was recently removed. Now, the only way to get to this hidden cove is by boat: Once you get to Crocus Bay, look for a man named Calvin – he sets up camp under a mahogany tree, and he can also be reached by phone: 1 (264) 497-3939/772-1332. Calvin will take you to and from Little Bay for a round-trip fee of $15. For more information, visit Anguilla Tourist Board's website.

#1 Meads Bay
Located on the western end of Anguilla, Meads Bay is beloved for its silky-smooth sand, aquamarine waters and gorgeous views. Plus, recent visitors said this beach is never as crowded as Shoal Bay East, and there are always chairs to rent and places to eat: many travelers and locals recommend dining at Blanchards Beach Shack, which is open Monday through Saturday at 11:30 a.m. (get there early for lunch).
Like the rest of Anguilla's beaches, it is free to spend the day here. Keep in mind that the waters can get a bit rough during the winter season (December through January), but are usually mild during the summer. The easiest way to get to Meads Bay is via taxi, unless you’re staying at a hotel that’s within walking distance of the beach.
