Post Irma all is well on Shoal Bay EAST. Zemi beach resort is under repair but rest of the beach is well , and lovely. We had a rainbow every morning this week. Uncrowned, and unencombered by millennials . Quiet and serene, a Caribbean dream

Shoal Bay was the very first beach we visited in Anguilla, and It is, hands down, the most beautiful beach I have ever seen. To visually scan the width of this awesome strand is enough to love, but then you walk on it. The sand...More

Post hurricane Irma Shoal Bay East is just as stunningly beautiful if not more so. Sugar white sands, crystal clear waters and several beach restaurants and bars make this my preferred weekend getaway.

This is the most wonderful beach that I have visited with white powdery sand, you cannot beat that. The young man responsible for beach chairs was very professional. Great beach with many restaurants.

Without a doubt - the Best Beach on the planet. Crystal clear blue water, white powder sand, great snorkelling within swimming distance of the beach, never too many people, inexpensive but great lunch options. Just heaven on earth.

Literally the most amazing beach. We took a trip over from neighboring St. Martin and it was incredible. The island itself is much less developed than St Martin but the beaches are to die for.

It depends on what you like... Personnaly we like quiet beaches such as in Turks and Shoal Bay is close but already too built on the western side... But if the sun is shining, the colors are beautiful!!! Enjoy!!!
