Thanks to it being the home of Anguilla's ferry port, most people expect the beaches of Blowing Point to be quite busy.  This isn't always the case.  The strip of sand to the west of the dock is relatively calm and secluded, often favored by locals and tourists for a day trip that includes some swimming and a picnic lunch.  The other beaches in this area are closer to resorts and they tend to be a little more crowded, but not enough to be a deterrent to visiting them.

Anguilla's Rendezvous Bay

Blowing Point Beach: Blowing Point Beach stretches from the jut of land it takes it's name from to the ferry terminal on it's east side. The waters are calm and clear and the sand is soft and ultra fine, just right for a barefoot stroll.

A second alternative for beach-goers to consider is Merrywing Bay Beach. Practically connected to Rendezvous Bay Beach, this less popular sibling offers the same coast, same water, and same sand with a bit less crowds, making Merrywing Bay Beach a popular choice for those looking for a convenient peaceful beach.

Little Harbour: Little Harbour is aptly named. It's not a big beach or a long one.
