Anguilla: Escaping to Paradise

I came to Anguilla by ferry, a 25 minute ride, from the scenic shoreline of Marigot, St. Martin’s capital on the French side.  To me, St. Martin is paradise.  But what I found in Anguilla was a more subdued paradise – a quiet island with one beautiful beach after the other.

Anguilla’s solitude, pristine beaches and world class resorts make it a place where you can really feel like you’re escaping the world.  “Anguilla is recognized for what we don’t have,” says Candis Niles, Director of Tourism with the Anguilla Tourist Board.  “No jet skis, cruise ships, casinos or high rises, but just beautiful beaches in a tranquil and laid back atmosphere.”

I toured five properties while on Anguilla.  The first three listed below are 5-star resorts, and the last two are 3-star properties.  I found all to have beautiful, white-sand beaches with great ocean views.
