I had some trouble with hotel bookings. Some places hired really good deceptive photograghers. I fell in love with Anguilla last year during a 5 day stop over after 2 weeks in St Barths. The beaches were uncomparable--I couldn't wait to return. Came back for 18 days to celebrate milestone birthday. I love spending summertime at beach but never thought to go to Caribbean in summer. Great idea on many levels--the prices are lower in off season, place isn't
rainy or humid(trade winds) or abandoned in July and the beaches and the water, OMG alot better than Maine or Cape Cod. Nice restaurants ---The Sunset room at the new Four Seasons and Straw Hat ( for breakfast. Lunch and romantic dinner) and the people are warm and welcoming Meads bay is stunning and less congested that Shoal Bay East although both areas offer uncomparable beaches. Rendezvous bay is a treasure with both high end and less expensive places to stay, it still feels like a well kept secret. Mead's bay worries me because it is so beautiful ( and possibly underpatrolled) I noticed an increase in 'poachers'-- watercraft that set anchor way closer than a nations water boundry,clearly not registering in a harbor or dock. I smelled gasoline in the shallow waters and a murkyness that wasn't there a year ago. Anguilla may need to establish a system of limiting or eliminating unregulated vessels from upsetting a deicate and beautiful ecosystem.
