Issue #112, October 31, 2018

Trick or treat from below the sea in Anguilla!

It is hard to believe that the off-season has come and gone.

The past few months have brought blissful "Anguilla-calm." From the north coast...

To the south...

Blowing Point...

And Champagne Shores' Pelican Bay have been putting on a sea-sparkling show, complete with sea turtles at play!

Now? High season is just around the corner. The sights and sounds of the exciting season ahead are in the air. Four Seasons Anguilla, Zemi Beach, Madeariman, Artisan, Tradition Sailing, Bijoux Boutique and so many more have re-opened their doors.

With more re-openings to come, including CuisinArt, Cap Juluca, Malliouhana, Blanchards, Mango's and Anguilla Watersports, we can't wait to see what the next six weeks have in store!

Until then, what's new?...

The Gallery & Print Shop

Thank you so much for all of your feedback on the Anguilla Beaches Gallery & Print Shop. Your input and suggestions have been invaluable! We have been hard at work, implementing your feedback. Two major changes include...

1. People felt the prices were too high, so we have dropped them. Everyone who purchased will receive a 50% refund on their purchase or the equivalent value in free prints, whichever you prefer.

2. We have added the option to purchase "printed-on-canvas" versions. These are printed on canvas and stretched onto a solid backing. They are ready to hang or to be more formally framed.

(The cost to print and wrap canvas is higher for the manufacturer. So, please use your Anguilla Card code "AXACARD" to save 10% on your purchase.)

Click here to see the NEW Gallery & Print Shop.

Please let me know, too, what you think over on Facebook.

  • Are there photos on our Instagram that you would like to see on the Gallery?
  • Would you prefer different sizes?
  • Perhaps painting versions of these photos?

A true labor of love, all of your feedback is deeply valued.

Thank you so much & I hope you enjoy the new Gallery :-)

Rare Interview With Ian "Sugar George" Edwards

Ian "Sugar George" Edwards is one of the most interesting and hardest working men you will meet. The man behind many of Anguilla's most eye-catching villas (the famous Beach House!), his story of success is nothing short of inspiring.

We dropped in on Sugar George at his latest development, and his biggest project yet: the luxurious development, Tranquility Beach Anguilla on Meads Bay (project details here).

A man who isn't often caught in front of the camera, a big "thank you" to Sugar George for letting us chat with you this month!

30 Minutes of Meads Bay Relaxation

This video's destination? Total relaxation. Put on your headphones and get ready for 30 minutes of beach meditation, Meads Bay-style!

A long stretch of powdery-fine white sand, Meads Bay’s beauty is one of a kind. Here, the ocean floor is unmarked by reef. Crystal-clear blue water stretches for as far as the eye can see over the bay’s sandy bottom. There is something about that white sand and blue water combination that is utterly soothing.

Click here for Meads Bay relaxation.

Stay tuned for more relaxation videos, interviews and Anguilla adventures coming soon!
