Dining at C-Level

Speaking of Aurora, we can't get enough of C-Level! Their beachfront bistro has become a go-to.

There is no such thing as a bad meal at C-Level and there is no better way to begin a meal than with their Island Margarita, made with jalapeño-infused Don Julio Blanco and mezcal.

As for cuisine? Their items from their on-site hydroponic garden will wow your tastebuds. The gazpacho deserves a special mention. It is a cool breath of fresh air on a warm day.

Next, we need to bring your attention to the Classic Club Sandwich!

Check out the size of that club! This double decker features smokey bacon, turkey, tomato and lettuce layered between buttery grilled bread. You won't be able to resist polishing off every last ounce of this enormous lunch classic.

Last but not least, no meal is complete without a little sweet treat. To end a perfect day at C-Level, an order of chocolate chip cookies is in order.

Anguilla Love From Reader, Ellen

A huge thank you to Anguilla Beach Lovers reader Ellen for sharing her beautiful photos and memories of Anguilla from her trip this February!...

My husband and I were looking for a new Caribbean island to vacation this past February. We were intrigued by Anguilla as well as Nori's Anguilla newsletter. We made a really good choice by picking Anguilla.

We spent 2 weeks there this past February at the Manoah Boutique Hotel and had a wonderful time. As I am a photographer, I found the island of Anguilla to be beautiful, and I took numerous photos of the island’s natural beauty.

The people on the island were very friendly and made us feel very welcome. Coming from Chicago, we found the weather in Anguilla to be warm, beautiful, and inviting.

We definitely want to spread the word about a beautiful Caribbean island for people to visit and relax.

Thank you for your beautiful words and photography, Ellen! We can't wait to sea you here again 🤗🤗

Top Take Out Spot: Ruthy's Yum-Yum

A fun, bite-sized restaurant in the tiny village of Little Dix, Ruthy’s Yum-Yum is a foodie favorite through and through.

Locals and tourists alike come back time and time again to this roadside gem. From taste, to price, to its convenient location, Ruthy's ticks every box.

Some of our favorite eats at Ruthy's?...

First, if you love sauces that perfectly blend savory with sweet, try the wings tossed in Ruthy's BBQ sauce.

These tasty wings will fly right off your plate!

Ruthy's menu doesn't end there.

With refreshing salads, soft and juicy wraps, cheesy quesadillas, and pizzas with more toppings than we can name, Ruthy’s Yum-Yum is one of the top take-out spots in Anguilla.

For light bites, we recommend their fresh and veggie packed House Salad...

A mixture of lettuce, corn, pineapple, olives and peppers is topped with your choice of protein. We like the chicken for its crispy crunch.

Now, for Louise's favorite from the menu...

A hefty serving of crunchy nacho chips is topped with guacamole, peppers, tomatoes and your choice of protein. Choose from chicken, shrimp, fish, steak or ground beef. The flavors are rich and divine!

On to sandwiches. The menu features a salmon burger, lemon mahi fish sandwich, tamarind chicken sandwich, cheese burger, double bacon burger, veggie burger and the buffalo blue cheese chicken sandwich...

A thick breast of chicken is battered and fried to absolute perfection. Sandwiched between two pillowy soft buns and doused in a delicious blue cheese sauce, top this creation with coleslaw for an extra burst of flavor.

No matter what you choose, Ruthy's always hits the spot.
