Absolutely beautiful beach, very clear water. The water was not too cold and the waves were not too rough! Saw an amazing sunset one evening laying out on the beach.

Travel Channel voted this the #1 Beach in the world 2017.....I'd have to agree it was the most beautiful beach I've ever been to. Great restaurants, not too crowded, very clear water. Going to dream of this place until we can get back there!

Anguilla has many gorgeous beaches. When calm, Shoal is arguably the best! Check out Madeariman for food, be sure to say hi to Jeannette behind the bar. Many other good places; Gwen's, Sunsets, Hank's, Uncle Ernie's, plus some I can't remember!!

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!!!
