33 magnificent Anguilla beaches.
Certainly there can be no harder task than to name the single best from so many perfect, yet different, beaches.
So let me cheat a bit and pick three, for different reasons...
This is a 2-mile strand of perfect white sand. It has been named the world's best beach (not just the Caribbean's) by many top tourist magazines and authorities. Here's a photo of my dad, little sister and me...
We love walking that beach.
The sand is so powdery and stretches a mile, comes to a point with some fantastic reefs, and then goes another mile.
Several good beach bars (I think that's why my dad loves Anguilla anyway!), not to mention terrific, open-air restaurants right on the beach.

Here you see Yuki (my younger sister), my mom and me at the Madeariman Restaurant...
The food was great, and you won't find a place that's more on the beach.
Have their grilled snapper sandwich!
My sister and mother both swear by the ribs, too.
And you probably do not know what it is most UNknown for! Click here to visit the virtually deserted end of the biggest and best of all Anguilla Beaches...
I put "funkiest" in quotes because that's what my dad calls it. I just think it's a cool place.
People from around the world dock their boats here when they visit.
And as you can see...
There are a heck of a lot of boats and people crowding this coolest of Anguilla beaches.
As a matter of fact, it's one big gigantic party!
Actually, it really is a big party...
It's Anguilla's biggest party... bigger even than Christmas!!
Usually, Sandy Ground is a lot slower with a few foreign sailors docked and the occasional huge container ship.
If you like to dance, drink and party, don't miss Johnno's by day and Pumphouse by night.
Even though this is where we lived for a month back in 2002, I didn't pick it because I'm biased...
Of all the Anguilla beaches, it used to be that you would hardly ever see anybody here.
Barnes Bay was truly a secluded beach. The beach is more populated now that Viceroy Anguilla resort straddles both Barnes Bay and meads Bay.
Back in 2002, our villa was between two luxury villas that cost over $3,000 per night! Now, with Viceroy, there are many more high-end accommodation options on Barnes Bay.
The beach is a wonderful fine powder, no rocks or coarse shells as some of the others have. And, as you can see, it's simply beautiful...
Most of all though, I really feel comfortable on this beach.
Maybe I am a little biased after all.
But you can't really blame me, with great memories like the ones below...
My mom, really relaxed.
Anguilla beaches do that to you!
Of all of the 33 Anguilla beaches, these are my top 3. If you pushed me to name only one, I'd have to say Barnes Bay... but then again, I am biased.
Memories count, after all.
