Katouche Bay Beach

Katouche Bay Beach is a compromise beach that is remote enough that it rarely sees visitors, while close enough to the towns that it is easily reached. Those who decide on Katouche Bay Beach will be treated to a large beach that has plenty to explore, from large rocks and underwater sights, to a rocky cove where you will be able to hunt for fossils.

Located toward the northern outskirts of North Hill Village, 1.9 miles northeast of South Hill, Katouche Bay Beach is on the North coast of Anguilla. You might want to drop by regardless of whether you are staying nearby. Katouche Bay Beach is a distinguishable relaxation spot because it's the ideal location for escaping the typical tourist haunts. Many of the other beaches in Anguilla may be just as beautiful, but are usually more crowded since they're located by some of the most popular tourist areas in town.

How to Access The Beach
The beach is located at the end of Old Court House Road. If you were coming from the airport, the best way to reach the beach would be to take The Valley Road north and turn right onto Coronation Avenue towards Crocus Bay. Right before the entrance to Crocus Bay Beach, you can turn left onto Old Court House Road.

Amenities and Ambiance

Surrounded by cliffs, forests, and rough waves, there is not much of this beach that is completely soft sand. Visitors will probably want to wear beach shoes or at least heavy sandals to avoid be cut by sharp rocks. If you are felling adventurous, you will be able to explore the rocky cliffs for the fossils as well as some hidden caves.

Unfortunately, public restrooms aren't available, which is something to consider if you plan to spend a full day in the sun. Fortunately, the water here is clear and good for snorkeling, so purchase or rent some equipment if you're hoping to see what lies beneath the surface.

Since Katouche Bay Beach is located inside an area that sees many visitors, you might need to hunt to get a spot!
