Do you have a beach crush?

A beach that you compare all other beaches to only to find they all fall short of that one true love…

A beach that you dream about, sing about and write about every time you get the chance…

A beach you casually refer to as “our beach” in friendly conversations…

Like most crushes, it might be a passing fad but for now you just can’t imagine loving anything as much as you love that beach crush.

For us – right now – that beach crush is Rendezvous Bay.

Set on the southwest of Anguilla and overlooking the rolling hills of St Maarten/St Martin, Rendezvous Bay is a heavenly strip of white sand framed by shimmering, blue water.

It is perfectly unpretentious, hosting just two resorts and three beach bars. Perhaps it is because of this simplicity that we love it so much. Without the distraction of large crowds, we’ve enjoyed many romantic strolls down this beach, holding hands while gentle waves tickled our ankles.

There is so much natural beauty to take in, our first few minutes there always start off with pictures. But, after a while, we force ourselves to put down the cameras. Then, within minutes, we allow ourselves to become immersed in this little plot of heaven on earth where we’ve discovered cozy spots to lounge, delicious places for romantic meals, a date night spot and two places to cozy up at night.

Scroll through to see the romance of Rendezvous Bay through our eyes.

When you’re through, we hope you have a crush on this beach too.

Soft, white sand underfoot, shimmering blue water and a grove of palm trees in the distance make this the perfect place for a romantic stroll.
