The 3rd most popular snorkel dive spot in Anguilla.


  March 19, 2019

East of the airport on Anguilla, the snorkeling at Sandy Hill Bay (aka Seafeathers Bay) is popular for its coral formations and sea turtles. This protected cove is also known for plentiful parrotfish, sergeant majors, grunts and blue tangs. For the best water clarity, you'll want a windless day with calm surf. Even then, the visibility is ranges from 10-20 feet.

To reach the snorkeling on Anguilla, you will need to fly into St Martin and then take a small connecting plane to Anguilla via Anguilla Air Services. If small plane bother you, there is a regular public ferry between the islands from Marigot ferry port on St Martin to Blowing Point Ferry Terminal on Anguilla. The only rental car company servicing Blowing Point Ferry Terminal is Andy's Rental Car (super friendly service). In either case, a passport is required on arrival into the island even by ferry, and there is a $20 USD departure tax per person.

The dive site is located 1 mile southwest of East End. There is parking at the end of the dirt road on the west edge of the beach.

Overall, Sandy Hill Bay Beach is the 3rd most popular snorkel dive spot of all 10 snorkeling dives in Anguilla.
