Southwest of the airport on Anguilla and northwest of Blowing Point, the snorkeling at Meads Bay is popular for its diverse marine life. The best Meads Bay snorkeling is off the rocks at the east end of the bay when the surf is very calm. While snorkeling here, you may encounter parrotfish, french angelfish and spotted moray eels. There are several beach bars and restaurants along Meads Bay.

To reach the snorkeling on Anguilla, you will need to fly into St Maarten and then take a small connecting plane to Anguilla via Anguilla Air Services. If small plane bother you, there is a regular ferry between the islands from Marigot ferry port on St Maarten to Blowing Point Ferry Terminal on Anguilla. 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.

Overall, Meads Bay is the 6th most popular snorkel dive spot of all 10 snorkeling dives in Anguilla.
