Welcome to Shoal Bay East... the best beach in the Caribbean! It has been voted best beach in the Caribbean by travelers and "professionals" alike. It's not hard to see why. It may be a surprise to know that this beach has many Anguilla real estate possibilities, too.
Let's see where we are on the island...
Anguilla has many qualities that reel visitors in. Some come for the relaxed atmosphere, total seclusion, warm weather...
But most come for the beaches.
Because, of course, Anguilla is home to "The Best Beach in the Caribbean".
Shoal Bay East
Shoal Bay stretches for two whole miles and divides into the west side and the east side.
While the west side is equally beautiful, it's the east that gets splashed on all of the magazine covers!
Let's take a look at both...
Watch the video below to get a feel for the eastern side of Shoal Bay East...
The eastern side of the beach has been named the nicest beach in the Caribbean by many travel magazines! I don't think them wrong! The restaurants, the people, the relaxation, the snorkeling, the villas, hotels... oh yes!, and the Anguilla real estate.

... and, of course, since it is Anguilla after all, pockets of sheer serenity.
Whether you're basking in the sun, enjoying a beachside resto-bar, swimming, snorkeling or just floating for hours, Shoal Bay East really is the best beach in the Caribbean.
And who wouldn't want to live by "The Best Beach in the Caribbean"?
One thing that's not hard to miss on Shoal Bay East are the magnificent homes, mansions and villas along the eastern Sea Rocks.
Money is clearly no object!
Ah... staying in any one of castles must be heaven! There are nice, smaller villas here too, like Tortue Villa. With four large bedrooms, there is enough space for eight people, while sharing the same spectacular views of Shoal Bay East. It may not be quite as glamorous, but it can be rented for a small fraction of the price of one of those Anguilla mansions!
Let's take a look at some of the land now...
Million Dollar Villas and Undeveloped Land...
(Taken from the where the beach comes to a tip)
This whole beach is scintillating sand, so the only option is to head to the far eastern end of the beach for Anguilla real estate availabilities.
There, you will find both oceanfront undeveloped property, million dollar waterfront villas, and also land that is higher up in the hills... still only a hop, skip and jump away from the sand!

looking back toward the tip...
As you leave Shoal Bay East, take a left onto a super-bumpy road that runs along the hills/cliffs overlooking the far eastern end.
The cheapest, and perhaps best buy, is the higher hillside land above the road. But if you insist on being closer to the water, that is still possible, too.

What more can you ask for? This beach has it all. But don't rule out its neighbor, the western end of Shoal Bay East. Same beautiful beach, for fewer dollars.
It's just as beautiful, just as sunny, just as perfect. And, while it's more secluded, you're just a short beach-walk to the action!
Whenever my family and I go to Shoal Bay for a day at the beach, we start at the densly populated Shoal Bay East (East), then, to relax, we head west.
Shoal Bay East's
Undiscovered Western End
Take all that you know about Shoal Bay East...
Its soft sand which carresses our feet, the blue Atlantic which drifts us out to sea ever so slowly, and the warm sun which beams down and kisses our skin.
Now subtract the "crowds" of the Eastern side.
Calm, relaxed, not better... just different.
If you're a fan of Shoal Bay beach, and want to avoid the crowds, turn left after your burger and Carib at Ernie's!
The video below will give you a sense of the western part of Shoal Bay East...
Though this is the rather "undiscovered" side of Shoal Bay East, my family and I aren't the first to note this. Each year, more spectacular mansions and Anguilla villas rise out of the sand and hills.
Tennis Court Villa
There's plenty of Anguilla real estate here, too! (Can you measure real estate in tons?)
First of all, take a look at the views from the hills...
Same turquoise, with gentle white-topped waves!
Same direction, view from lower down...
And from lower down again,
look at that long strand of sand!
Undeveloped land is available farther west of here, where the oceanfront turns rocky.
And you can also buy land higher up in the hills, at a reasonable price and with tremendous views.
As you can see, the western half of Shoal Bay East, is beautiful. Just like it's neighbor! I don't see why the easter side gets all the attention. The western side is sheer bliss, too.
And, today, there are a few condo developments, ranging from ones with units in the low hundreds of thousands, to the upper hundreds of thousands and millions.
Shoal Bay East certainly has many Anguilla real estate opportunities!
