One restaurant/beach bar that’s always a must visit for me on Anguilla is Roy’s Bayside Grill. Located at the southern end of the beach on Road Bay in Sandy Ground, Roy’s has become a breakfast mainstay for us. The value is tremendous (in my opinion, the best on the island), especially if you’re staying in Sandy Ground and don’t have to take a taxi somewhere.
The restaurant sustained a lot of damage from Irma in 2-17 but has come back better than ever. Now with more space, open air dining and further utilization of their entertainment area next door (opened up every Friday for their popular happy hour), Roy’s has a new look with the same friendly laidback atmosphere its longtime visitors have always appreciated. Be sure and check out the “new” tables. They incorporate wood from the previous structure – a piece of the past that helped forge their future.
Come for breakfast, stay for happy hour and enjoy the sunset from Sandy Ground. A day on Anguilla doesn’t get much better than that. Want to stay the night? You can in their onsite apartment!

About the Beach Bar
“Originally from England, Roy & Mandy Bossons moved to Anguilla, BWI in 1981 and quickly put their experience as Pub managers to work as they opened a modest Fish & Chips shack beachside at Crocus Bay. This soon grew to the original Roy’s Place which remained open on Crocus Bay for nearly 25 years until Roy’s Bayside Grill opened on Sandy Ground in 2004 and the original Roy’s closed.
Now, Roy’s Bayside Grill is the ultimate experience that Roy & Mandy have always wanted to offer their guests. A great beachside location which is more accessible and within walking distance of night life. With the new location came a new grilled fresh seafood and meats menu, but Roy has stayed true to his roots continuing to offer fish & chips and lobster bisque, the items that made him famous!
Roy & Mandy invite you to enjoy drinks, lunch, dinner, Friday Happy Hour or Sunday Roast Beef at Roy’s beachside on Sandy Ground. They want you to have an experience unique to you and enjoy the character, charm, whit and charisma that awaits diners as they enjoy the atmosphere that is Roy’s Bayside Grill.”
