Anguilla Beach Lovers

Issue #076, December 8th, 2013

It's that time of the year again... the holiday season is here!

Private jets at the Clayton J. Lloyd Airport, hotels booked solid, new restaurants and old favorites launching new menus and concepts, a buzz is certainly in the air.

From da'Vida's Asian-inspired menu, to Trattoria Tramonto's "Snack Shack," to CuisinArt's new master chef, to Abbi's (of Dolce Vita) second restaurant, there's so much NEW to sample, too. Lucky us ;-)

Before jumping into it all, let's take a look back on the past few weeks...

Not-Too-Distant Memories

We took in the sensational sea view from Nat's newly renovated Palm Grove...

We sampled wanton soup, dim sum and spring rolls from da'Vida's new and re-vamped tapas and dinner menu (review coming soon)...

We caught a few fun waves nextdoor in St. Martin...

And marveled at some bigger ones here in Anguilla...

Lucky guests at Tequila Sunrise Villa got to hang out with popular Anguillian musician, Omari Banks who happened to drop by...

And, they got to sit spectator to this colorful sunset, too!...

We were reminded why Anguilla is called "Rainbow City"...

And, we basked in the tropical moonlight...

What else is new?

The Omololu International School

The fundraiser? Win a trip to the Caribbean, including airfare, dinner, accommodations and various activities. Each ticket costs $39 and each month a different Caribbean vacation package will be raffled off. Click here for more on the raffle.

It's all for a terrific cause!

St. Martin For Lunch

Planning a little day trip to St. Martin on your next trip to Anguilla?

On a recent trip over, we discovered an excellent, tucked away lunch spot for elegant yet laidback French fine dining in Grand Case. With a spectacular view of Anguilla (it's always fun to look at our favorite island!) and Grand Case beach, the setting sure is easy on the eyes. As for the food and service? Five-star. The French wouldn't have it any other way ;-)
