sunset vacation: Round Rock Bay

H - Limestone Bay
Looking for an out-of-the-way beach that is still near The Valley... Limestone Bay is about 100 yards of scenic perfection on a rocky coast. Ideal for picnics, there is even a tree or two for shade (see the photo). It was calm and swimmable when we took these pictures. North West.

I - Little Bay
Wowow.. with Meads Bay, it's really my favorite spot... Little Bay is on the north coast between Crocus Bay and Shoal Bay, not far from The Valley. The easiest way to get there is from Crocus Bay, where you can hire Calvin (or any fisherman) to take you there in 5 minutes (about $10 round trip). Little Bay is protected by a cove of high cliffs. It has no surf and the snorkelling is excellent. Bring snacks, drinks and beach towels and make a picnic of your trip.
I - Benzies Bay &
This bay is noted for a number of things. It is the start of the Katouche Valley rainforest, it is never crowded, it is a fun place to explore or have a picnic, and it is a good place to look for fossil sealife.
J - Sandy Ground
What many people think of as a typical Caribbean beach, a beach that we could see 10 or 20 years ago. Here you will find many local fishing boats, several well known beach bars, dominoes games, and an amazing sunset every day. Home beach to the local sailing boats, and starting point for most of the races. Excellent harbor for charter yachts. Best place for beach sunset vacation.
Other offshore islands:
About 4 miles north of Anguilla. A quite, uninhabited island right out of the pages of "Robinson Crusoe". Swimming very good. Very good spot for kitesurfing in a north or northeast wind, but be aware of shallow reefs.
