Corito Bay Beach

Looking over the famous Anguilla water, Corito Bay offers all of the beautiful sights of a tropical beach without the common crowds. Hidden on the south side of the island in between an industrial and residential area, few tourist make their way here. Though those that do will be treated to near total privacy and plenty of space to explore and spread out over.

Positioned near the middle of the island of Anguilla, Corito Bay Beach is on the South coast of the island, You should consider dropping by whether or not you're staying particularly close by. You will typically find yourself with plenty of room to stretch out, since the surrounding region and the beach itself are not overly congested.

How to Access The Beach

There is direct road access to Corito Bay Beach, though some of the roads are a bit rough and in need of renovation. If you were arriving from the airport, the most direct path is to take The Valley Road Southwest and turning left as soon as the airport ends. You will then pass the beginning of the airport's runway, and not soon after will come to a fork in the road; take it left (as if heading back towards the airport). That road will curve right and begin heading south. Follow that road. When it curves again, you will see the beach along the left side of the road.

Amenities and Ambiance

Straddling the southern coast, Corito Beach features the same clean sand that can be found throughout South Anguilla. However, this beach is more natural than the others, and you should not be surprised to see some driftwood or seaweed washing up onshore. Additionally, the strip of sand can get narrow at points where grass and plants are taking over; so it may be a good idea to remember some shoes if you plan on walking the entire beach or doing much exploring.

Unfortunately, public restrooms aren't available, so those of you traveling with small children may want to consider another spot. You will find the water here is clear and good for snorkeling, so bring your gear if you're hoping to find some interesting marine life.
