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.
You will discover several beaches to choose from in and around the area. Snorkeling is available at some locations, for people who are so inclined. Just click on individual names for a detailed article concerning that particular beach.
