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. However, while there is not much exploring or swimming to do here, it is a great location for a private picnic, taking pictures of the islands on the horizon, or simply taken in the sounds and feel of the strong sea-breeze. It can be found only a meager interval away.
