Blanchard's Beach Shack, Meads Bay, Anguilla

Well, Blanchard's Beach Shack is an official success as evidenced by the number of customers we saw this year compared to last year shortly after they opened!  It has everything going for it:  Beach-front location on gorgeous Meads Bay, delicious food with a wide range of menu options, friendly service and convenience.   

Since their grand opening, they've added beach chairs for rent out front, similar to what Elodia's does on Shoal Bay East.   (As a fan of how uncrowded Meads Bay is, I'm not sure how I feel about that, but...)  It's definitely putting Meads Bay on the map of beaches to visit for the day.

In summary, we LOVE Blanchard's Beach Shack, as do our children.  They especially enjoyed the frozen yogurt.  We ate there a number of times the week we were there and do not hesitate to highly recommend it.

Ocean Echo Restaurant, Meads Bay, Anguilla

A brand new, welcome addition to the beach at Meads Bay!  A wonderful spot for both lunch and dinner, right on the beach.  The service is warm, friendly, fun and helpful.  We enjoyed meeting chef Sylvester and talking to him about his experience, his passion for creating dishes using local ingredients, and menu items that allow the true flavors of the fresh ingredients to stand out.  From what we tried, he's doing a great job so far!  

We ate there twice in one week, once for lunch, once for dinner.  A bonus for traveling families is that they have a children's menu ($10, includes dessert, which was ice cream when we were there, although the menu says jello) that the kids can color, providing them a little entertainment beyond playing on the beach while waiting for their food.

Once again, an amazing trip to Anguilla!

We were lucky enough to visit the new Blanchard's Beach Shack on Meads Bay a day or two after its grand opening.  What a superb addition to Meads Bay!  It's a much-needed casual, well-priced walk-up right on the beach.  You can dine there or take out lunch or dinner Monday through Saturday.  The food is delicious and the menu offers much more than just basic burgers.  (But keep in mind that their burgers are scrumptious, too!)
