Meads Bay ranked amongst best beaches in the world

Meads Bay

Islands Magazine ranks Frangipani’s beachfront amongst the world’s best

While some may assume I’m a bit biased, I’ve always touted Meads Bay as the island’s best beach. The soft, white sands and turquoise waters provide a picture-perfect Caribbean backdrop and the long expanse of beach makes it one of the best for those long sunset strolls. Like many of Anguilla’s other beaches, Meads is unspoiled; a few palapas dot the beach and the low density makes it a haven for those looking to escape the crowded beaches of other, more touristy Caribbean retreats.

Islands Magazine, a publication that looks at islands around the globe, recently put together their own list showcasing Best Island Beaches in a Top 10 list. After ranking hundreds of beaches around the world, the Hawaiian and Caribbean islands ranked supreme, with Meads Bay coming in at #2 (#1 in the Caribbean).

Awe-inspiring view aside, Meads is also home to a stellar array of restaurants (think Jacala, Blanchard’s and Straw Hat amongst others) which make it a great jumping off point for exploring and dining. Of course, it might be a bit tough making reservations at Malliouhana like the magazine recommends (a bit outdated on the info), but no matter; you’re still sure to find fab, luxe accommodations along the beach.
