Fundraiser Launched For Anguilla’s Sunshine Shack Beach Bar

Tagged: , , , ,

I’ve written about the Sunshine Shack, a beach bar located on Rendezvous Bay in Anguilla, many times on this blog. After visiting the island for the first time back in 2015, I named it the best beach bar in Anguilla. A lot of that has to do with its owner, Garvey Lake.

Tagged: , , , ,

I’ve written about the Dune Preserve, Bankie Banx’s world famous Anguilla beach bar, multiple times on the blog before. On both of my visits to Anguilla, I had the great opportunity to spend a considerable amount of time within this adult treehouse on the beach. A visit to the Dune is a moving experience. Add to that up close and personal interactions with the incredibly hospitable Bankie himself and you feel as if you’ve just...

Tagged: , , , ,

When Coconuts Beach Bar recently opened at Anguilla Great House, you probably couldn’t have found someone outside of Anguilla more excited about this little noticed opening than myself. I had already been considering a stay at this resort for our next visit to the island and when I heard that they now had a full-fledged beach bar on site, it made the choice even easier. Sure, I’ll probably spend more time at other beach bars but at...

Immersed in the Moment at Anguilla’s Sunshine Shack

Tagged: , , , , ,

There are moments you get to witness personally or that are brought to your attention that remind us what it is we love about beach bars. I’ve tried to put it into words but like most everything else, it really needs to be experienced in person. Until then, this video of Garvey Lake performing an original song he wrote called “Reasonings” at the Sunshine Shack, his beach bar on Rendezvous Bay in Anguilla, will have to suffice. The...
