    Kayaking

    by nashjohn Written Jan 30, 2014

    Last weekend my wife and I went kayaking. We have been meaning to do it for quite some time. We decided to go and do something because it was a Saturday afternoon and we needed to not fall asleep on such a nice afternoon. We drove to Crocus Bay and got there around 4.30pm.

    So we went to Da'vida's restaurant, which sits along side the beach, and rented a double seat kayak for 15USD per hour.

    We were the only people on a kayak.

    We took some pictures and videos of our journey. It was really nice.

    We journeyed to Little Bay which took about 15 minutes and we had that little secluded cove all to ourselves. The sunset was nice and the water was wonderful.

    We journeyed back a little before the sun started to set and got to see it sink behind the water on our back.

    It was FUN.

    Early mornings on the beach

    by Irina80 Written Aug 1, 2008

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    At sunrise or early in the morning run 1 - 2 miles from one end of the beach to another (Rendezvous bay where I stayed is pretty long), do some yoga for about 30 minutes and then run back, just in time for breakfast:)...for the rest of the day: relax on the beach, go shell searching, explore sea life in the shallow rocks

  • Shoal Bay, Anguilla - a must see Caribbean beach!

    by JonnyVT Written May 29, 2008

    We only had a day trip to Shoal Bay and all we did was enjoy this phenomenal beach. The water is crystal clear and warm as if you were in the tub. This beach is a must see if you are traveling in the Caribbean.

    We took the ferry from St Martin (Marigot) to Anguilla. Cost was $30 per person. We then took a taxi directly to Shoal Bay ($16 return) as we wanted to enjoy the turquoise water and silky smooth sand. The sand was like icing sugar and the sea beautiful shades of blue and warm too. There were lots of colorful fish and the longer you hovered over the reefs the more fish would appear. The food was good about $18 for a lobster salad and $2 a beer. We will return and next time stay a few nights!.

    Birding

    by bsfreeloader Written Feb 9, 2008

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    With relatively few landbirds to be found, Anguilla isn’t exactly a birder’s paradise. The island is home to just three of the species endemic to the Caribbean – Green-throated Carib, Antillean Crested Hummingbird, and Lesser Antillean Bullfinch – and it takes some effort to find anything other than Brown Pelican, Magnificent Frigatebird, and Royal Tern along the coast and the ubiquitous Cattle Egrets, Bananaquits, Gray Kingbirds, and Zenaida Doves inland. All of the island’s salt ponds are worth birding, especially Rendezvous Pond and Road Salt Pond, where White-cheeked Pintail and several species of shorebirds are possible.

    Maundays Bay Beach

    by bsfreeloader Written Feb 9, 2008

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Maundays Bay Beach is home to the famous five-star Cap Juluca Resort. It is another of Anguilla’s outstanding beaches. Considerably smaller than the beaches at Shoal Bay East, Rendezvous Bay, and Meads Bay, the calm waters make this a good spot for families.

    Crocus Bay Beach

    by bsfreeloader Written Feb 9, 2008

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Like the beach at Sandy Ground, the beach at Crocus Bay is not on a par with Anguilla’s best and is more popular with locals than it is tourists. Just a five-minute walk from the edge of The Valley, this is a good spot to escape other tourists and catch a sunset.

    Sandy Ground

    by bsfreeloader Written Feb 9, 2008

    Sandy Ground is probably as close to a travelers’ hub as there is on Anguilla. Several bars and restaurants line the beach and there are several nearby guest houses. The beach here doesn’t compare to Shoal Bay East, Rendezvous Bay, Meads Bay or some of Anguilla’s other top beaches, but it is extremely popular with local children. This is a great spot to while away an afternoon and then party at night to some live music.

    Meads Bay Beach

    by bsfreeloader Written Feb 9, 2008

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Another of Anguilla's finest beaches can be found at Meads Bay. This is the high rent district, with lots of posh resorts and restaurants to be found. The beach itself is just a notch below Shoal Bay East and Rendezvous Bay.

    Rendezvous Bay Beach

    by bsfreeloader Written Feb 9, 2008

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    With St. Martin serving as a backdrop, it’s hard to find fault with the beach at Rendezvous Bay. Featuring the same flour-soft, blinding white sand and turquoise waters as the beach at Shoal Bay East, it’s not surprising some locals and tourists actually prefer Rendezvous Bay’s beach over its more famous neighbor.

    Shoal Bay East Snorkeling

    by bsfreeloader Written Feb 9, 2008

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    In addition to an exquisite beach, Shoal Bay East also has some excellent snorkeling just offshore. Visibility is excellent, the coral is in good shape, and there is both great diversity and good numbers of fish. Hawksbill Turtles also are a possibility. And, with the exception of these marine critters, there’s a decent chance you will have the entire reef to yourself.

    Shoal Bay East Beach

    by bsfreeloader Written Feb 9, 2008

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Superlatives regarding the beach at Shoal Bay East are well documented elsewhere. Suffice it to say, they are all accurate. The blinding white sand feels not like sugar but like flour between your toes, and the turquoise water is the perfect temperature, neither too warm nor too cold. With only minimal tourist development along the beach, this is the stuff of postcards and dreams. There are several bars and restaurants along the beach to choose from, but locals seem to prefer Uncle Ernie’s.

    Pyrat Rum

    by evilprebil Written Jul 29, 2007

    I like that this small of an island has their own rum distillery. Unfortunately we were in that area on a holiday, so no tastings for us. But the rum is superb (they even sell it in PA, the most conservative state for alcohol). You can visit the factory, we called ahead, but they tend to change when they are available.

    Boat Race!

    by evilprebil Updated Jul 29, 2007

    Commemorates the beginning of the Anguillian Revolution which took place on May 30th, 1967. Anguilla Day includes a boat race around the island. There was a lot of confusion for us as to what day it was, but we happened to still be on the island for it (Happy!). We walked out of Ripples on Sandy Ground and I say sailboats in the distance. It was definitely a cool thing. Places are closed, but people are EVERYWHERE. Look in the FAR background on these shots and see the grey outline of the sailboats. A very cool experience!

    Hydroponic Farm

    by evilprebil Written Jul 29, 2007

    One of the most interesting parts of this little island! The Cuisinart Resort (where we of course stayed) has a hydroponic farm. For an island that doesn't receive much rainfall and depends on St. Martin for supplies, this is an oddity. The produce was wonderful and the Farm tour with Dr. Howard Resh was extremely interesting.
