Little Bay

Top choice in Anguilla

Among Anguilla's more secluded beaches, west-facing Little Bay is a sublime sliver of sand with excellent swimming, snorkeling and sunsets. It can only be reached by boat. Drop by Da'Vida Bayside in Crocus Bay and ask for Calvin or whoever else is around to take you there. The round-trip fare should be around US$15 per person.
