Anguilla Beach Lovers
Issue #052, April 30th 2010
You know you are "in the clear" when the weekend forecast has a couple of 85°F days in the mix (unless, of course, you live in Montreal!). Finally, Spring has sprung in New York City. And with the promise of coming sticky streets and heavy muggy air, school has been "heating up" too!
The good news? After Spring and final exams comes sun in full form...
Summer! This summer Yuki and I are lucky enough to be heading home to our Mom and Dad and even stronger rays of summer sun in Anguilla, spending afternoon after lazy afternoon just grilling.
But before checking into JetBlue, before tearing up my school notes, and before we get into the thick of exams, there is some catching up to be done on Anguilla-Beaches.com!
First, I am very proud to present the latest addition to Anguilla-Beaches.com's Site Sponsors, Carimar Beach Club.
During this year's Spring Break, my family and I had a lovely one night stay at Carimar Beach Club. Tasteful, clean accommodations, directly on Meads Bay, and for a minimal cost. Even though we only stayed one night, the hotel's family feel caressed us, and made us feel right at home, safe and comfortable. Carimar Beach Club truly is the best value hotel you will find on Anguilla!
If you are planning an Anguilla vacation and are looking for a low-cost, high-value place to stay nothing beats Carimar. Please click here to read more about Carimar Beach Club.
#1) An Introduction to Anguilla Vacations
Recently I have been receiving many emails asking me for a "quick list" overview of Anguilla vacations. When planning a vacation to a new spot on the globe, knowing where to start is always the challenge, and figuring out all of the "must dos" can be a daunting task. To ease the task of building a vacation plan, I have shared my "Anguilla essentials!"

#2) Anguilla Activities
Over the years I have told many of our family's favorite Anguilla activities stories, from challenging Anguilla hikes, to leisurely sea kayaking, to swimming and snacking... Now, you can find all of our favorite Anguilla activities listed on one page.

Anguilla Snorkeling, Diving & Junior's Glass Bottom Boat
One of our favorite Anguilla activities is enjoying all of the "sea sights" Anguilla has to offer. Whether by snorkel, with sophisticated dive equipment, or from the safety of a glass bottom boat run by a fascinating man with a childlike enthusiasm for sealife, Junior Fleming, visiting the sea is always magic.

Anguilla Boat Tours
Still craving the sea? Hiring an Anguilla boat tour and getting the full experience of Anguilla waters is always a treat that transforms Anguilla vacations. One of the most memorable afternoons was aboard our new favorite Anguilla boat charter, spending a whole day at sea, traveling to some of Anguilla's most remote cays.

Air Tours of Anguilla
Equally as eye opening as Anguilla boat tours? Air tours of Anguilla! Gazing down from aboard Anguilla flights is one of our favorite ways to tour Anguilla. And, never do you feel as safe as when you are aboard this Anguilla airline...

#3) Anguilla Shopping: Why Knot?
Anguilla shopping is one industry that has not really developed in Anguilla like it has in other islands like St. Barts and St. Martin, thankfully my Dad adds! ;-) Memorable Anguilla souvenirs are hard to come by, but Yuki and I have found a shop that has quickly become one of our favorites, and that carries a "must have" Anguilla souvenir that never goes out of style.
Click here for one of my favorite Anguilla shopping spots with classic Anguilla souvenirs.
Speaking of Anguilla souvenirs, if you are interested in finding more Anguilla souvenirs click here to visit my Anguilla souvenir shop! The online shop features many hard to find Anguilla souvenirs including historic Anguilla coins, flags, and other momentoes. Happy souvenir shopping!
#4) The Breakfast Challenge
Finding breakfast spots on visits to Anguilla is always work. Time and time again, our favorites have "closed for the season" to never re-open, have just stopped serving breakfast, or have shut down completely. But now, we have a new favorite breakfast location, and something tells us this one isn't going anywhere. Has the challenge been put to bed? The menu, the location, the price... Nothing beats this spot on the beach!

#5) Classic Caribbean Resorts
Malliouhana Anguilla resort was Anguilla's first luxury hotel, still capturing true Caribbean luxury today. It is perhaps the most fitting Anguilla resort, so secluded, peaceful, simple, yet always luxurious, and home to the most magical sunsets. Malliouhana is one of our personal favorites. Malliouhana's most gracious and kind resort manager, Bart van Deventer, invited us on a spectacular tour of this beautiful resort, and relive the magic of Malliouhana sunset drinks.
