Captain's Bay, Island Harbour

#8 of 10 in Beaches in Anguilla
Discover Captain's Bay, a secluded gem of a beach with perfect white sand. On this 0.4 km (0.25 mi) stretch, you can watch the dramatic waves from the Atlantic crash on the island's rocky northern shoreline. Beware of the extremely strong undertow here: swim with caution and never when alone on the beach. The site can be hard to reach using a normal car, so a 4X4 is recommended. You won't find any amenities apart from one super-luxury villa on the cliff, so bring snacks and drinks for the day, as well as some protection against the sometimes strong winds on this rugged part of the island. Our Island Harbour trip itinerary maker tool makes visiting Captain's Bay and other Island Harbour attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.
