shaolbaywest1Located on the opposite end of the island, Shoal Bay West is perfect for swimming and snorkeling. A factor which has made this Anguilla beach a visitor favorite is the great views of the neighboring islands of St. Maarten and Saba. Anguilla beach vacation seekers opt for Shoal Bay Beach (west) as it is not very populated but has excellent accommodations such as the Brazilian Emerald Villa, Russian Amethyst, African Sapphire Villa, Cove Castle Resorts and Blue Waters which are all flourishing developments along the beach. Angushoalbaywestilla’s leading restaurants including the Italian restaurant Trattoria Tramonto are found on Shoal Bay Beach (west end)

To get to Shoal Bay Beach from the Valley, take the main road to the West End and turn left at the end of a paved road onto a gravel road around the salt pond. You have to access the beach between the Trattoria Restaurant and the Blue Waters Apartments.
