Anse Marcel lies to the very North of the island. When you drive the road over the mountains up to here, the drive offers some breathtaking panoramic views that you wouldn't´t want to miss to take on picture.

Anse Marcel is a tropical, upscale beach for couples and families. It is nestled in a scenic quiet bay facing Anguilla island, protected from the swell. It is a white sandy beach with shade and calm waters. The shallow and calm water is ideal for families with small children. The Marina is located at the northern side of Anse Marcel. Among other more marine related things, the facilities at the marina include a tiny handful of boutiques, shops and restaurants.

Post Hurricane Irma - Update

Anse Marcel was severely hit by Hurricane Irma in September 2017. All beach facilities and resorts were destroyed or sustained severe damages.

There is no more Anse Marcel Beach Resort & Bar, no more restaurant, the RIU Resort also got a full blow and many of the hotel and private buildings and homes were and are still badly damaged. Yet the capitainerie / the marina office re-opened in December.

Anse Marcel is slowly recovering from this hurricane. We presently (December 2017) do NOT recommend to tourists to visit this beach for the time being.

Locals may find this beach still good for a swim or for a day off, bringing their own umbrellas, beach chairs and cooler boxes with them. Keep in mind, there is presently no service on this beach. It will take months to make the beach suitable for tourists again. Thus to have a fun experience at Anse Marcel, we recommend to wait at least until October/November 2018.

In general, the leeward beaches to the west and southwest are calmer, facing the Caribbean Sea. Therefore, Anse Marcel is a beach with usually very calm waters and it is also very protected on its flank sides, not being exposed to the open Atlantic.

Anse Marcel beach lies in between two steep hills. One part of the beach is at the Riu Plaza Hotel.
You can leave your car on the free parking outside the Riu Plaza gate or just next to the Anse Marcel Beach Bar Resort, located just a few yards from the beach.
