Sandy Ground is the go-to spot on Anguilla for visitors interested in experiencing the best of the island’s beach and nightlife atmospheres. Learn more about Sandy Ground and helpful tips for planning your visit by reading on below. Find out why this is one of the top 10 things to do In Anguilla today.
Why Sandy Ground?
Located along Road Bay, Anguilla’s busiest port, on a small strip of land between the bay and the island’s biggest salt pond, Sandy Ground is ideal for a day trip or a night out on the town. It’s the hub of both Anguilla’s beach bars and restaurants and the island’s commercial sailing industry. Here, you’ll find places to relax and enjoy good food and drink into the night, surrounded by eclectic and historic villages, as well as more touristy areas, such as Visitor’s Pier.
Sandy Ground is one of the most iconic spots on the island. It’s a great place to swim if you have difficulty swimming, though you’ll want to keep an eye out for mooring lines and boats while you do, as it’s Anguilla’s main commercial bay. Unlike most of Anguilla’s beaches, Sandy Ground enjoys access to public restrooms.
Additionally, the majority of Anguilla’s greatest events are hosted at Sandy Ground, from the Anguilla Summer Festival and Carnival to various boat races throughout the year.
What to Do While You’re Here
Soak up the lively ambiance of this popular spot during the day by checking out some of the many beach bars and restaurants that call Sandy Ground home. Elvis’ Beach Bar, Dad’s Bar & Grill, Johnno’s, SandBar, Dolce Vita, Le Bar, Ripple’s, and Roy’s Bayside Grill are all worth checking out.
For a night out, Sandy Ground’s plethora of bars offer a variety of experiences. The northern end of Sandy Ground is particularly well-known for its collection of lively bars, including Elvis’ Beach Bar and Dad’s. Dancing and live music are popular on Anguilla (especially in Sandy Ground), with bars hosting music and dance nights on certain days of the week.
If you decide to make a day out of visiting Sandy Ground and want to experience both day and night here, we recommend getting to Elvis’ Beach Bar before sunset so that you can take in the exquisite evening view.
