Elvis’s Beach Bar

Sandy Ground 2640, Anguilla

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!

Elvis' Beach Bar

During the day, Elvis’ Beach Bar, located on popular Sandy Ground, is the ultimate laid-back Caribbean beach hangout. But by night, it’s the heart of Anguillan nightlife, where the party keeps going after it’s ended everywhere else (especially on Thursdays). Burying your toes in sand with a cool drink and grilled food and some tunes, making new friends among the myriad of international visitors and celebrities who stop by, is all part of the experience. The bar itself is a wooden boat that was redesigned for its purpose, and later came a deck for additional hang out space, and a restaurant that now serves Mexican fare. Sports lovers will enjoy the large outdoor screen for catching big games while sipping on Elvis’ signature rum punch.
