Nice little beach shack with chairs and umbrellas. We were walking the beach up to the Dune Preserve and needed some cold drinks, found them pretty expensive but being able to lounge at the beach with a cold drink , priceless!

Rum Punch was great. Chicken, Ribs and Snapper all excellent. Expect to wait awhile for your food but it is really good. Can't beat the beach location.

Very nice place to chill, playing cool songs in a beautiful beach! The food is delicious, especially the ribs! So good that we returned the next day. The food takes quite a while to be ready, because Garvey prepares it carefully. The second day he promised me some extra ribs but it took so long and I had to go... More

This is an excellent beach day spot. The beach is incredible, fantastic for walking. The sunshine shack offers beach chairs, unbrellas, tables, beachside drink and food service. They have so much to do, cornhole, washers, tons of balls, etc. Everyone that works here is so nice and friendly.

Garvey is a great host. VERY casual with a limited lunch menu. Travelers write their names on the shack ceiling and enjoy tropical drinks.

Sunshine Shack is on one of my favorite beaches in Anguilla, Rendezvous Bay. Garvey is an excellent host - very friendly and accommodating. He grills lunch right on the beach for his guests. I had the most delicious red snapper and hubby had the chicken. Lunch was served a little later than we had hoped so we were starving by... More

What a fun place with a great vibe. Great music selection too – mix of Bob Marley and other island tunes. Food does take a while (as do all good things cooked on a smoker) so order as soon as you arrive if you want to eat vs. just chill. The pineapple margarita was very refreshing and the food was...

Caught the sunshine shack on the last day of the season. The place is awesome, right on the beach great food. Garvey the chef is the man, talked with him about bean town for a while turns out he vacations where we live and vice versa. Must do on your trip to Anguilla.

There is no need to elaborate. Not only is Garvey a gentleman and a great 'hugger', he cooks the best ribs and chicken on the island. And the accompanying carrot salad is refreshing, delicious and perfect. The drinks, the divine Rendezvous Bay and all of Garvey's immensely accommodating staff make for a beautiful afternoon that lasts well after the sun... More

Garvey and his staff treat you like old friends from the moment they meet you, a warm welcome The Ribs were delicious and freshly cooked. They came with tasty rice and a crispy salad with a tangy drizzle. My only negative was that the portion of coleslaw was far too small!!! It was the best I have tasted in ages.... More
