The basics

With few buildings to spoil the view, Cove Bay is Anguilla as its most secluded. Many people come here to stretch out on a sun lounger and get lost in a book. If you’re not staying on the island you can still enjoy some time on this quiet beach with a catamaran day trip from neighboring St Maarten. There’s a small reef for snorkeling at the east end of the bay.

Things to know before you go

  • In high season, you’ll find an inflatable aqua park anchored just offshore with waterslides and sunbathing pontoons.
  • There’s limited shade at the beach so remember to bring sunscreen and a hat or consider renting a lounger with an umbrella.
  • Although there aren’t any restaurants at Cove Bay, you can grab a drink or a snack at Cip's, situated at the swanky Cap Juluca hotel at nearby Maundays Bay.

Watch the Sunset

Catching the sunset is a favorite local pastime on Anguilla, and a great way to round out a day on the island. The beaches on the north coast are best for catching the daily show, including Crocus Bay, Shoal Bay and Meads Bay. Pack a picnic or stop in at a beach bar for a front-row seat. Once the sun has finally disappeared it’s time for a tasty dinner of barbecue chicken or locally caught crayfish.
