INTRODUCING Merrywing Bay
Beachside bliss awaits at Merrywing Bay, one of Anguilla’s most beautiful stretches of coastline. Long, sunny days are for wandering from sun lounger to beach bar. Taking in views across St Martin from the deck of a private yacht. Or splashing through the surf in search of the perfect snorkelling spot. Quite simply, there’s all you need for a luxury island escape.
Things to do
From rugged, volcanic headlands to soft, palm-fringed sands, Merrywing Bay is ideal not just for sunbathing, but strolling. Take in traditional beach shacks and buzzing bars – perhaps stopping off for a rum punch on your way. Or find your patch of paradise, open up your parasol, and settle down to lounge the day away.
It’s almost impossible to spend a day at Merrywing Bay without wanting to dip a toe in the waves. And if you want to go all in, you’ll be spoilt for choice with scuba diving, surfing and paddleboarding on offer. To let someone else do the hard work, take a private sailboat tour and enjoy the water at leisure.
There’s plenty to keep you entertained on dry land, too. Break up tranquil days by the pool with a game of tennis. Challenge yourself to complete the championship golf course, counted among the Caribbean’s finest. Then enjoy the ultimate romantic evening at nearby Cove Bay, with a horseback ride along the beach at sunset.
Close to Merrywing Bay is a peaceful lagoon, where you might spy pelicans and rare wading birds such as the Tri-coloured Heron.
