If you're looking for a place where surfers and sunbathers can find solitude, Sherricks Bay Beach could be just what the doctor ordered. 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's located two and a half miles west of the property.
