One of my favorite spots on Anguilla. Garvey is the owner and is super friendly and interesting. He cooks up fresh fish (and Lobster) right on one of the most beautiful beaches in Anguilla. And he plays some great Caribbean music. The experience is exactly what makes Anguilla so great. The snorkeling n front of the shack is not that... More

Lovely lovely beach (note the two lovelies! ). Happy, helpful and pleasant staff. Superb BBQ food. And a great band playing reggae and covers. Everyone who came, stayed and were thrilled to have discovered it- so were we!

Had a very very nice lunch 3 yrs ago. Was favorite meal at that time. Still very tasty ribs and snapper. Don't get me wrong. The food is one of the best. Nevertheless, the portion is so small for the price. Especially, the snapper at $27. Tiny fish with one spoon of cole slaw and minimal rice. Don't expect lunch... More

We spent an afternoon on Rendevous Bay at the Sunshine Shack. Rendevous Bay was expansive and beautiful. The water was calm enough to swim in. While we were in Anguilla, the North (Atlantic) bays had high surf so we went to the South (Caribbean) bay for less wave action. Garvey, who is the owner/chef at the Sunshine Shack cooks up... More
