Limestone Bay Beach

Not quite into the remote area of Anguilla but also not well within the tourist spots, Limestone Bay Beach is a good choice for those looking for a little privacy and freedom from the crowds, but also trying to avoid long drives and dangerous roads.

Positioned on the island of Anguilla, Limestone Bay Beach is on the North coast of the island, You should consider stopping by even if you are not staying in the immediate vicinity. Vacationers who want their beach to have a little bit of everything——a hint of seclusion, with a somewhat social scene—— may find that Limestone Bay Beach is just the right spot. It's just slightly removed from the center of it all, but it's not totally devoid of people either.

How to Access The Beach
While there are a few ways to reach Limestone Bay Beach, the easiest way is to first head towards Crocus Beach (just Northwest of the airport). From Crocus Beach, you can follow a dirt road north along the coast. The next beach it runs into is Limestone Bay Beach.

Amenities and Ambiance

Limestone Bay Beach is known for its wonderfully soft sand that will have you kicking off any footwear you may have on. Surrounded by an otherwise rocky coast, this football-field sized enclave is a great escape for anyone looking for their own slice of tropical paradise.

Unfortunately, restrooms will not be available here, so if you're visiting with small children you might want to consider a different location.

Don't forget that the immediate vicinity around Limestone Bay Beach is rather congested, so show up early.
