Let's Beach Every Week!

Speaking of beaching, we will be bringing the calm to you every week over on our brand new Patreon page.

Patreon brings a digital twist to the age old concept of “patrons of the arts.” It’s a modern way to support creators, especially important for independent travel sites in the time of COVID-19.

Patreon’s paid-for platform allows folks like Louise and me to keep bringing you "what we do" at a small cost.

Anguilla's Re-Opening: Current Travel Requirements

Anguilla has zero cases of COVID-19 and has been officially categorized by the World Health Organization as having “no cases” of COVID-19.

Because of this unique position Anguilla is taking a careful approach to its re-opening.

Nov. 1 marked the beginning of Anguilla's "Phase 2" of re-opening, with the introduction of the "bubble" concept for hotels.

Anguilla's iconic hotels are re-opening, including...

  • CuisinArt Golf Resort & Spa re-opens on Nov. 14
  • Malliouhana re-opens on Dec. 19
  • Cap Juluca is officially open.

Current requirements include PCR testing, a 2 week quarantine (with fees for surveillance and testing) and medical insurance - for stays at approved hotels, villas and long-term rentals.

For guests staying at hotels, the island has implemented the "bubble" concept. During the 2 week quarantine guests can dine out, enjoy kayaking, yoga, trips to Sandy Island and Prickly Pear and more - at partners who are "in the bubble."

A Note From Blanchards

The entire Blanchards family deserves a huge round of applause.

Bob, Melinda & their team have been working around the clock, raising funds in these difficult times.

Travel bans due to COVID-19 have devastated Anguilla’s economy and many people on the island have been faced with hunger.

Founded in 2006, Blanchards Anguilla Children’s Fund, a 501c3 non-profit organization, is dedicated to enriching the quality of life for the children in Anguilla.

In times of emergency, like hurricanes and the current COVID-19 pandemic, Blanchards uses the funds to buy food, water and necessary supplies for the people of Anguilla.

The entire team have gone above and beyond raising funds and supporting the Anguilla community.

True super stars, let's hear it for Blanchards!
