Forest Bay North

Forest Bay is not an overly developed Beach. There are very few buildings, making it one of those rare beaches that feels pristine and untouched. It's a curved, white sand beach with crystalline waters and a backdrop of greenery and sea grape brush.

Positioned toward the northeastern outskirts of Forest Bay, Forest Bay North is on the South East coast of Anguilla. You should consider dropping by whether or not you're staying in the immediate vicinity. Forest Bay North is one part of Anguilla's coast that is not terribly crowded, even though it's in a fairly popular area.

How to Access The Beach
This is a great public access beach with adjacent roads and some parking near the Straw Hat restaurant.

Amenities and Ambiance

Forest Bay has the best powdery soft sand, a restaurant on the east end and a boat dock.

Unfortunately, you won't find any public restrooms along this coastline, so those of you traveling with small children may want to consider another spot.
