Simple. Iconic. A throwback to yesteryear. Elodias Anguilla Beach Bar is a rustic, open-air beachside bar on the quieter side of Shoal Bay East. A brightly painted teal façade wears its weathered age as a badge of honor, and the only thing brighter than the interior walls – a dazzling greenish-blue – are the smiles of the proprietors, greeting weary travelers to their humble eatery that is a hit with locals and visitors alike. Here you can mingle with everyday island folk and fellow jet-setters, sharing tales of travel over a Rum Punch and a batch of freshly fried Mahi Mahi. Elodias is a throwback to the Anguilla restaurants and beach bars of “yesteryear,” and that is just how they prefer things.
Take a Load Off
Sure, the view of the Caribbean and the jaw-droppingly white sands of Shoal Bay bring plenty of onlookers, but that isn’t why the regulars keep coming back to Elodias Anguilla. It isn’t the menu either (while short, it is delicious). It is the friendly service and the true spirit of the island that seems to reside here. Of course, delicious portions of classic Anguillan fare don’t hurt matters.
First and foremost is the Rum Punch. A Caribbean beach bar staple, Elodias Anguilla makes theirs with three types of rum, plenty of fresh fruit juice, and a splash of Amaretto to top things off. You’ll be smitten from the start.
When it comes to food, the choices are simple, delicious, and incredibly affordable. A variety of sandwiches (tuna, chicken, fresh fish) come with coleslaw and French fries. Barbecue plates come loaded with grilled chicken, ribs, shrimp, or the catch of the day. There is a hamburger, a cheeseburger, and a handful of salads. Our favorite, though, is the Mahi Mahi sandwich. Made with fresh, line-caught mahi, this sandwich is topped with fresh veggies and a zesty tartar sauce. Choose from sweet potato or regular French fries, and thank us later!
After lunch, nothing aids the digestion (or shaking off one too many Rum Punches) like a walk along the pristine sands. Relax on a cabana chair or under an umbrella, or head on back and start in on round two. You are on vacation, after all! Enjoy the best of Anguilla restaurants, and visit Elodias.
