Drive out to the east end and you will find the best/largest secluded beach on the island. VERY rarely is anyone else there when I am. Plus off roading to get there is fun! The small surf if great fun for older children to play in.

A extremely beautiful and isolated beach on the far east end of Anguilla. A bit difficult to get there as you will travel along dirt roads with no markings. But the reward is breathtaking. Completely secluded beach and very private. However, no beach bars or anything around so bring a cooler with refreshments. Also, the current is very strong here... More

This was one of my favourite beaches until they built a monster villa on the cliff above it.. Undertow can be dangerous

This is one of my favorite beaches. Hard to get to but worth the drive. I have only ever seen one other person on the beach when I have been there and he was a local fisherman.

The road to Captain's Bay was a little treacherous and you definitely need 4-wheel drive for certain stretches, but the journey is well worth it. We had this beautiful beach to ourselves for the day. The crashing waves and strong tide make it dangerous to do anything more than wade into the water, but it also makes for a striking... More

Most secluded beach on the island. Packed a lunch, brought a bottle of Champagne and a beach umbrella and had the entire place to ourselves all day.

This is a spectacular beach. Very rugged and can be windy. You only want to walk it then. However when calm it is beautiful swimming and snorkeling. Notg the easiest beach to get to and the roads down to it require a four wheel drive vehicle and even then it is a fun ride!!! However well worth the effort when... More

The road to Captain's Bay is impossible for normal cars, and challenging for 4x4s. And it is now overlooked by a gigantic villa which definitely thinks it has the beach to itself (but it is unfinished, so who knows?)

My husband and I spent the last two weeks of March 2003 in Anguilla. This was our first visit there. At first, we thought we made a huge mistake. The island itself is not very pretty, but the beaches are ABSOLUTELY amazing. Captain's Bay was my favorite. This beach is on the northeast part of the island on the Atlantic... More
