A huge congratulations to grand-prize winner, Jennie! :-)
We love your photo of life under the sea. The combination of blues took our breath away... the clear water, your snorkel, bathing suit, even down to your nail polish! A beautiful capture of "Tranquility Wrapped in Blue." And, that's the biggest starfish we have ever seen! We were "star struck" by your photo ;) :)
You have won THE grand-prize, Jennie, the 3 course chef's dinner with wine pairings at the five-star Restaurant at Malliouhana.
A big congratulations to Top 5 finalists, Alyssa, Paula, Sarah and Marisa, who have all won a FREE year of the Anguilla Card.
Choosing just 1 winner was incredibly difficult. Each submission struck a different emotional chord and beautifully captured precious memories made in Anguilla from a unique perspective.
Looking through them, it's clear to see that there's nowhere like Anguilla :)

Until then, keep scrolling to browse through all 58 stunning Anguilla postcards. Each and every one conjures up such special memories of Anguilla.
Over the years, through talking with different residents of and travelers to Anguilla, one truth emerges from all of the stories shared...
"That could only happen in Anguilla."
Perhaps it is our endlessly sunny days (thanks to our desert climate), or the clear, blue seas and cushiony-sands, or the kindness of the people. Whatever the reason, Anguilla's tranquility has a disarming effect on the people who visit its shores, and an ability to align and deliver magical situations.
"Our car was stuck in the sand, and who helped us dig it out? None other than the New York Giants!"
"On a clear day, all alone on one of the most beautiful beaches, he proposed."
"I finally learned to let go and jumped from 'The Rock!'"
"I was walking by myself on Prickly Pear when a man in a yacht invited us to his private beach party. His friends called him 'Leo.'"
As for me? One of my personal favorite memories was a day in October, 2014.
Memories of Caribbean Dream Waves Post-Gonzalo
Catching the surf-perfect, aquamarine waves that Hurricane Gonzalo left in its wake, with just one friend in the water, and not another soul out on the beach!
Another favorite memory was on a trip to Sandy Island...
Dad's Sandy Island Struggle
Flapping around in the surf, my Dad struggled to put on his snorkel flippers at Sandy Island. It took him at least 15 minutes to realize he was trying to put on MY fins!
With all of the warm personal memories and second-hand stories out there, I present our latest contest...
