Our First Time

by Eileen
(New Jersey)

Shoal Bay

Shoal Bay

We have visited other islands over the years. We were in St. Barths for a few when we heard of this island "Anguilla". We said, "Hey let's give it a try."

When we first arrived, the question was "what do we do?" But then our taxi driver drove us to Shoal Bay. We saw the water... Oh my God what a view! Our question was answered.

That was 20 years ago. We've been coming back ever since, staying at resorts and private homes, doing a little bit of everything. From fine foods to local foods, we love them all. Dancing, too (I agree Calvin is a good dancer!).

The warm friendships on the island bring me home to the States refreshed.

See you all in a few weeks,
xxx Eileen

Nori's Reply: You're right, Eileen! A trip to Anguilla is the best way to recharge the batteries. The island's warmth found in its people brings you home revived. The people's kind, inclusive nature has been a gift since moving here. Everyone is so warm and welcoming. They have made our move to the island that much smoother! :-)

Our 12th trip. Wouldn't go anywhere else in the Carib. Johnno's was the biggest disappointment. 2 waitresses for 60 unfed customers at dinner on Sun. night. Might be a better lunch spot if open.Mexican restaurant on south end the best!!Picante.Stay at Turtles Nest-again super spot. Can't beat the people. Making our plans for next year.Try day trip on Chocolat.

First Trip to Anguilla?

It all depends. Some people stay at Cap Juluca the whole time. Others rent a jeep and bump over every back road they can. My family did the latter and visited every beach.

I highly recommend Cheddie's new restaurant, Klassik. Great food and inexpensive. If you like high-end restaurants, Trattoria Tramonto.

There's so much to recommend. Have fun!
