Rendezvous Bay is a popular beach with a lot of character. There are a few resorts, but also an old abandoned hotel and a kitschy beach pub. It's long and curved with silky soft sand and turquoise water. Beach equipment rentals are available, as are food and drinks.

Positioned in Rendezvous Bay, this beach is on the South West coast of Anguilla. You should consider dropping by whether or not you are staying particularly close by. While Anguilla has more secluded beaches than Rendezvous Bay, it has the right combination of charm and personality to attract beachgoers.

How to Access The Beach

With just a few resorts on a long stretch of beach, this is great beach for the public. It's just west of Blowing Point.

There is also a restaurant on-location, which many Rendezvous Bay visitors find convenient and satisfying. There are various types of dining experiences that vacationers can enjoy in Anguilla, but eating a delicious meal on the beach can be especially fun. Sometimes, hotels offer to pack up on-the-go lunches for their guests. Otherwise, there are plenty of walk-up vendors that offer hot, on-the-go food.

If you're suddenly hungry or thirsty, the concession stand at Rendezvous Bay is the ultimate convenience. You may also have the option to try local specialties from one of the mobile vendors who typically operate along this coastline.

Unfortunately, you won't find any public restrooms along this coastline, so if you're visiting with small children you might want to consider a different location. You will find the water here is of good snorkeling quality, so bring along some equipment if you want to see what lies beneath the surface.
