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.
