Maundays Bay Beach is the one that's nearest to the villa complex. Maundays Bay is a popular beach for tourists, with lots of nearby accommodations. Low-key visitors can simply relax on an expanse of warm sand or take a stroll down by the water's edge.

If instead you're looking for a stretch of sand that attracts very few tourists, Sherricks Bay Beach might be worth a visit. Completely undeveloped and the victim of erosion, Sherricks Bay Beach is a bit rockier than most beaches in Anguilla.

It can be found only a meager interval away.
