Why Knot Joins the Anguilla Card

Welcome to Why Knot... Fabiana's Shop!

Fabiana Liburd's first visit to Anguilla was in 1999. She was born in St. Kitts, and went to school in Canada. She is the owner and creator of "Why Knot," one of Anguilla's top shops for a unique piece of clothing, perfect for the local climate.

Fabiana opened Why Knot, first as a makeshift shop found "under the Tamarind tree" in Crocus Bay. From there she spent many successful years with her shop in West End.

Today, that is where you can find her... right in beautiful West End!

Fabiana's designs are perfect for the Caribbean!

Why Knot features Fabiana's casual dresses, tunics and tops made out of a light Indian cotton, captured in every color of the rainbow.

The light weight material is ideal for that tropical Anguilla weather under the sun!

Why Knot also carries cotton t-shirts, caps, bags, and funky jewelry.

My favorite piece?...

Fabiana's classic wraps and dresses come in so many fun colors (orange, fuschia, pink, red, blue, green, and on and on!). It is a piece that you will never get tired of. Why?...

There are six ways to wear it!

From the versatile and elegant design, to the vibrant colors and the material - these dresses are easy to love.

Fabiana showcases local artists and designers in her shop too! Locally made bags, paintings and earrings are all on full display...

Why Knot is truly a unique shop, home to the perfect Anguilla souvenir.

Now that you have your tropical attire, where do you show it off? Located just five minutes from Fabiana's shop is the sunniest shack of all...

Let's Lunch at Sunshine Shack

There are so many reasons to love Garvey Lake and his beloved Sunshine Shack on Rendezvous Bay!

Small, wooden, painted white, and decorated with local scenes and accented with reds, greens, and golds, the Sunshine Shack is a cute, humble watering hole.

It is an ideal spot for an afternoon, loved and frequented by many visitors to Anguilla.

When it comes to drinks, Garvey has a number of extra-special specialties!

The Banana Bailey's Colada (aka the BBC) and the rum punch are two of our favorites.

Drinks ordered, what's for lunch?

A juicy lobster and the chicken & rib combo are both musts. Garvey's BBQ is unlike any other BBQ we have had! The tender meat is loaded with smokey, charcoal flavor. The best part? It literally slides off the bone. There is magic in Garvey's BBQ.

Now, what's left to do after lunch? Nothing at all...

Simply relax and listen to the sound of the sea and sweet reggae tunes!

After all, you are on one of the world's most beautiful beaches ๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿ

For excellent BBQ, St. Martin views and RendezBLUE hues, don't miss Garvey's on your trip to Anguilla.

Hours: Daily for lunch and drinks. Closed on Tuesdays.
