    We ❤️ Mead’s Bay!
    My wife and I believe this to be the best beach on the island. Yes, the colors may be a little more interesting on Shoal Bay some days, but overall…Mead’s Bay wins it for us every time. Mead’s water is so calm and clear when we go in June/July, and it doesn’t have any rocks or sea grass that we need to watch out for. We agree that Mead’s also wins because of the cove near Malli. It’s such an easy walk right in the cove water, and it’s a great feeling to float down there in the cove for hours! Hopefully the photos show its beauty! -Jim & Linda Briggs

    Best Beach
    This was my favorite beach on Anguilla. We were only here for the day, took the ferry over from Marigot St Martin, which was easy enough to navigate - just be aware it's cash only. About $76 pp round trip. We rented a car when we got here so we could have flexibility. We also went to Shoal Bay and Sandy Ground. We were here in the off season, basically had the whole beach to ourself. Was just beautiful. Save yourself the trip from Shoal Bay, Meads is much closer to the ferry terminal and much more beautiful.

    Incredible beauty from the sand to the pretty turquoise waters! Quiet & serene. We floated in the water, on our rafts for hours. The end part of the bay has a small little cove that you can walk to & snorkel around the rocks. We loved this bay.

    Perfect Beach with all amenities
    The beach is wonderful. Clear water, soft Sandy bottom and the beach is exquisite. If you are not staying on Meads Bay, you can rent chairs and an umbrella at Blanchard’s Beach Shack. The food and drinks are great. If you are staying on Meads Bay as we did ( at the Turtles Nest ), there are many restaurants and other properties that serve food and drinks on the beach. Just a wonderful place to be!

    Beautiful beach!
    My wife and I (60's) spent a few days on Meads while staying in Anguilla. Beautiful mile long beach with Malliouhanna on one side and Four Seasons on other. Several lunch and dinner spots along. Not too built up. Water can be rough

This beach was beautiful! The white sand was so soft, the water was so clear and warm. Savi Beach Club and the Four Seasons are located on this beach.

Beautiful sand and water. Several beach bars and restaurants. Blanchard’s Beach Shack has good food and loungers with umbrellas. Straw Hat is another good spot to sit that has good food, loungers, and umbrellas. This beach also has several hotels and condos to stay at.

Meads Bay is stunning. We stayed on Meads Beach during our stay, and it was the calmest beach out of all the ones we went to. There are great restaurants along the beach. The sand is so soft! It is almost hard to walk in because it’s so soft. I highly recommend staying on this beach and also visiting as you beach hop.
