Anse Marcel is a beautiful tropical, upscale and secluded beach for couples and families. It is nestled in a scenic, quiet bay facing Anguilla island and protected from the swell. It is a white sandy beach with 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. Anse Marcel lies to the very North of the island. When you drive the hilly and windy road over the mountains up to here, the drive awards you with breathtaking panoramic views that you wouldn't´t want to miss to take on picture.

LOST PARADISE FOUND AGAIN!

Anse Marcel sustained severe damages from Hurricane Irma in September 2017 and all beach facilities were washed away. After extensive renovations and rebuilding efforts, the Anse Marcel Beach Resort & Bar reopened in 2019 as the first fabulous beachside place to go in the area (see here).
The RIU Resort and many of the hotel and private homes in the area were badly damaged. Yet the capitainerie / the marina office reopened in December 2018.

Anse Marcel did a huge step forward in the past 18 months recovering from this hurricane. The beach is in great shape again, and easily accessible at the Anse Marcel Beach Resort.

Anse Marcel beach lies in between two steep hills. One part of the beach is at the former Riu Plaza Hotel (today "Secrets" Resort).
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.

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 - The RIU in 2017 (archive photo)

In the aftermath of Hurricane Irma, the RIU resort was sold to the Sole group. A whopping $20 Mio will be invested into renovations and rebuilding of the resort which was destroyed by the storm.

Under the new flagship name of "Secrets" the new all inclusive is scheduled to open any time soon. To the dismay of many locals and business owners, the new - adults only resort - will be all inclusive again.

Bell Point Beach on St. Martin

Tip for Great Privacy!

There is a kind of untouched rocky beach, part of the nature reserve, about a 15 minutes walk to the west of Anse Marcel. Bell Point Beach
Bell Point is located between the northern end of Grand Case (Petite Plage) and Anse Marcel. It is the nearest beach to the reef of Creole Rock and thus is an excellent spot for snorkeling. Make your way to Bell Point and enjoy complete privacy and seclusion!
