Where To Stay In Anguilla
Anguilla is a tiny beautiful Caribbean island located just 12 miles north of St. Maarten that seems to fly under the radar. It is home to some of the most luxury resorts and arguably some of the best upscale dining in all of the Caribbean! While you can definitely find lavish luxury here, the island still feels authentic and is known to have some of the friendliest locals! The cruise ship embargo keeps this island from becoming overrun by tourists, enabling it to keep its private and exclusive vibe going. This destination is perfect for foodies wanting a castaway-esque Caribbean escape, or beach loving honeymooners looking for a luxury experience. Now that I’ve reeled you in, let’s talk about the real selling point, the accommodation!
