NEW Anguilla Card Partner: Madeariman Beach Bar & Restaurant

Set on the sands of Shoal Bay East, Madeariman Beach Bar & Restaurant is a favorite for beach days on Shoal Bay...

This French restaurant blends the best of both worlds...

  • Prime location, right on the sands of one of Anguilla's top beaches.
  • Excellent cuisine. We've never had a bad meal at Madeariman. Every dish we've devoured has been 10/10!

Practically an institution, Madeariman has established itself as one of Anguilla's great beachfront restaurants.

Beach days Madeariman-style begin with a view of Shoal Bay blue...

(Special Bonus: Beach chairs and umbrellas are now included with your lunch!)

And a frosty cocktail... or two!

Each sip is pure Shoal Bay bliss!

When hunger calls? Madeariman answers with an expansive menu. This beachside restaurant has something for everyone.

Chef whips up a variety of starters, from conch fritters with a tangy creole sauce...

... to refreshing Caprese salad with bright red, juicy tomatoes.

Popular main dishes include the crayfish in a basil and garlic sauce, with rice and peas, veggies and a side salad...

And then there's the oh-so-succulent rib eye steak with mushroom sauce and creamy mashed potatoes...

This, though, is barely scratching the surface!

The crispy calamari...

The savory lobster pasta...

The flaky, heavenly mahi mahi sandwich...

And then there's Madeariman's thin-crust pizza...

From appetizers, to mains, we could talk about Madeariman's menu all day!

After taking a biiiig bite, it's time for Shoal Bay respite...

Through and through, Madeariman is a dining must-do!

Beach Therapy

Nothing soothes like Anguilla blue!

Long Bay beach is one of Anguilla's little known "big beauties." True to its name, Long Bay is a long stretch of powdery-fine sand. Here, waters glisten in a cool gradient of blue, capturing every shade imaginable.

This impressive beach is set just next to famous Meads Bay. Unlike Meads, however, you won't often find another soul on this beach. Long Bay is where to be for total peace and tranquility.

For transcendental tranquility? Check into either of Long Bay's two ultra luxury villas, Long Bay Villas and Santosha Villa Estate.

Set on the lush hillside that slopes up from Long Bay beach, Long Bay Villas' three villas, Sky, Sea and Sand, each deliver a unique blue view.

From Sky Villa...

To Sea Villa...

All the way to Sand Villa...

Next door, Long Bay Villas' sister property, Santosha Villa Estate, delivers an even more exclusive feeling of Tranquility Wrapped in Blue.

This part of the beach (photo above), is cut off from the rest of Long Bay. It is a soothing escape, a beach all its own.

With enigmatic cliffside all the way to the east, and surrounded by crystal clear waters, the setting is utterly peaceful.

Long Bay Villas' & Santosha's therapeutic effect doesn't stop at the beach.

Long Bay Villas and Santosha bring true meaning to the term "beach therapy" with...

  • Yoga on the terrace
  • Paddle-boarding and kayaking
  • "Clean eating" menus prepared by the villas' chef
  • Gym
  • Massages and/or facials right on the beach

It doesn't get more rejuvenating than this!
