Issue #080, April 14, 2014
Temperatures are in the 60s up in the northeast United States, ice is thawing in Canada and boat racing season is about to begin here in Anguilla...
Spring has sprung! :-)
And there is so much to look forward to this month.
Before taking a look at what's new, let's look back on April so far and March...
What Did We Get Up To This Month?
First, we marveled at a NEW sight (to our eyes), this natural beauty...
Thank you to Bob Magee for sending in that photo!
Our senses were heightened again when a friendly Manta Ray played in front of Carimar Beach Club...
Naturally, we walked Anguilla's smooth sands...
We munched on curry chicken spring rolls at the NEW Cha Cha San...
Savannah Bay set up to give us a few fun rides on its turquoise waves...
And we closed many a night over pizza and a glass of Chianti at Blue Bar, inside the beautiful CeBlue...
The Anguilla Card
I'm excited to announce that we have welcomed several NEW Partners to the Anguilla Card, including...
1) Cha Cha San
A NEW restaurant, expert chef and owner Ken Lin has brought TRUE Chinese food to Anguilla.
The atmosphere blends Asian influence with Caribbean ambiance. The menu? It boasts classic dishes such as General Tso's and Seafood Chow Mein, all equally outstanding!
2) Bird of Paradise Villa
One of the most affordable villas for its category, Bird of Paradise inspires dreams of far-reaching lands, so exotic and luxurious.
They are also offering a romantic special. What's included?
Stay May 1-November 14, with a minimum 7 day booking, and the Romance Package is $1,899/night +10$ tax +10% service.
Book before May 1, and save 10% more when using your Anguilla Card.
3) Trans Anguilla Airways
Anguilla's only British-certified airline, Trans Anguilla Airways flies to several Caribbean islands. They offer private charters to these islands and affordable, scheduled weekly flights to St. Barths.
A delightful trip over, save 5% on this scheduled flight and 10% on all charters with Trans Anguilla!
4) A NEW Category of Partners: Off The Beaten Path, including Partners Hungry's and Mikey of Gumbsy's Bar
Highlighting lesser-known gems in Anguilla, we've started a new category of Partners, "Off The Beaten Path!" Our first two Partners include...
Hungry's Food Van is a must-visit just to talk with owner Irad, a fun and friendly man. While Irad is the perfect host, Papi is a terrific chef, serving up tasty quesadillas, soups and creamy pastas.
Mikey Fabian, of Gumbsy's Bar is a fisherman and an expert chef. He'll catch you a lobster, grill it up and have it ready and waiting for you when you arrive, all for only $30. He does a mean snapper, makes tasty Johnny cakes and coleslaw, too!
First, A Burger has opened their second location. This one is set in the heart of Anguilla, in The Valley. Their NEW breakfast menu is outstanding.
Do NOT miss their Johnny cakes with Nutella!...
Tip: These sell out fast. Call ahead or go early.
Second, my Dad has found one of his favorite steak sandwiches at Ferry Boat Inn.
Grilled to perfection with peppers and onions, served on a crusty, French baguette, and served with a side of Christian's famous hand-cut steak fries, it's perfect in every way.
Lastly, my Mom and I enjoyed a delightful lunch at one of the most peaceful spots on the island, Hibernia.
From presentation to taste, Mary-Pat and Raoul get it right. If you're in the mood for something light, I recommend the sashimi plate. It includes lobster with ginger, wahoo, tuna and smoked conch.
And, there is no better rum raisin ice cream in the world than Hibernia's. Soaked in aged rum, it is rich and divine.

That's a wrap for this month.
