Elvis’ Beach Bar
Finding a fun bar that’s popular with locals is almost a travel imperative: While hotel bars have their charms, local bars offer travelers a way to explore a destination through its people. This beach bar at the heart of Sandy Ground fits the bill. Mellow by day, the vibe picks up at night, with dancing out on the sand, occasional live music and DJs, plus famous full-moon celebrations. On Sunday afternoons, grab a fish taco and a beer and join the crowd watching the football or basketball game on the huge outdoor screen.

Anguilla's Ultimate Beach Bar
When it comes to Anguillan nightlife, beach bars are the go-to for late-hours entertainment and rum punches. And Elvis' Beach Bar, located in the heart of Sandy Ground Village, is the quintessential Caribbean beach bar. Drop by in the evening for a toes-in-the-sand experience while you play a game of cornhole and watch a vibrant sunset from Sandy Ground. For an after-dinner outing, stop in at night when the shoreline becomes a dance floor—a haven for locals and tourists alike. An old boat has been converted into the bar that Elvis uses to serve up his famous cocktails. A rum punch is a requisite drink order in Anguilla, but Elvis also has a secret off-menu concoction that begs to be tested: his famous Mammawanna shot. An herb-infused rum, the sweet-and-spicy liquid sits in a bottle behind the bar, waiting for adventurous takers. Give one a whirl, but don't be fooled—it's stronger than you think!
