I was here in december 2014, and it almost looked untouched. It was only me, my friend and four other people there. I loved it, it was truly a magical beach.

Just a beautiful beach with snorkeling right off the beach. Views are gorgeous and a few beach bars to kick back and just enjoy life.

Post Irma all is well on Shoal Bay EAST. Zemi beach resort is under repair but rest of the beach is well , and lovely. We had a rainbow every morning this week. Uncrowned, and unencombered by millennials . Quiet and serene, a Caribbean dream

Shoal Bay was the very first beach we visited in Anguilla, and It is, hands down, the most beautiful beach I have ever seen. To visually scan the width of this awesome strand is enough to love, but then you walk on it. The sand...More

It depends on what you like... Personnaly we like quiet beaches such as in Turks and Shoal Bay is close but already too built on the western side... But if the sun is shining, the colors are beautiful!!! Enjoy!!!
