During the summer, the conditions at Meads Bay are at their best for water based recreation, such as swimming, snorkeling, and kayaking. This is due to the vastly calmer nature of the water during this time of year. In particular, snorkeling within Meads Bay is a divine experience. Underneath the water, you’ll be met with vivid coral reefs teeming with diverse underwater creatures.
Come winter and early spring, Meads Bay is less ideal for sedate water sports. These seasons bring on rougher water conditions, including breaking waves that are not suited for children, as there is no lifeguard posted in the area during the off season. Despite this, there are many other types of wave intensive water sports that enthusiasts can enjoy, from body boarding to surfing and windsurfing.
Regardless of which season you decide to visit during, the beach at Meads Bay Anguilla offers awe-inspiring sunset views that will take your breath away, as well as an idyllic atmosphere for walks along the sands and soaking up the sun while sunbathing.
