Wow! Where did the summer go? It's hard to believe that we are already approaching the end of the off-off-season.
In nearly one month all hotels, resorts and restaurants will be open again. And what a season it will be with 3 NEW hotels opening this year... The Reef, Four Seasons and Manoah!
Until then, let's take a moment to bask in the total tranquility that comes with the off-season :-)
From Meads Bay...
To Shoal Bay East...
To the crystal cove on Barnes Bay...
To below the sea...
Anguilla's off-season is peace and quiet at its most soothing.
It hasn't all been quiet and calm, however. This off-season we got adventurous with a trip out to Scrub Island...
Add THIS To Your Anguilla Bucket List
Anyone who knows Scrub Island generally knows it for its mysterious stories. The island's half-finished and abandoned hotel, notorious Deadman's Bay, the plane crash site.
What we didn't know was that the waters that surround Scrub are just as, if not more, fascinating and diverse.
The man who knows Anguilla's waters and Scrub Island like the back of his hand, Nature Boy opened our eyes to Scrub's giant blow holes, its high seas (the area is home to the roughest waters in Anguilla), shipwreck sites...
... and fascinating sea caves.
It was one of the single most memorable days any of us have experienced. Mind-blowing in every way, if you're up for adventure, I cannot recommend this enough!
More exploring, this time on land, Pure Anguilla's tour takes you into Cavannagh Cave...
... and 180 feet below Anguilla into Katouche Cave!
Expert guide Oliver shows you the way, explaining the flora, fauna and prehistoric caves.
A real Anguilla adventure - bring your running shoes and a whole lot of courage!
How to Get to Long Bay
Long Bay's curves and shimmering-blue waters are simply stunning! We fell deeper in love with Long Bay when we discovered this...
.. a magical secret cove tucked away on Long Bay, complete with a fascinating stairway!
When we posted the original photo to Facebook and Instagram, we received a lot of requests for its location. Via Snapchat, we tracked it down and showed you how to get there.
If you missed the Snapchat adventure, here's how to get to that magical cove and the "stairway to heaven."

Anguilla's NEW organic farm and market set in the east end, Sensational Flavours is a true product of passion.
Stop in to pick up and sample their organic produce, baked goods (including hot Johnny cakes!), juices, soups and more. A lovely marketplace awaits you on Saturday mornings at Sensational Flavours.
NEW Restaurant: Spice of India
Anguilla's first dine-in Indian restaurant, complete with a tandoor oven, Spice of India has been getting rave reviews and it's not hard to see why! Here are a few favorite dishes from this authentic Indian eatery...
“Chef’s Vegetarian tandoori appetizer platter” - large tandoori mushroom, four pieces of a stuffed potato, paneer tikka and malai paneer tikka (cubes of cheese marinated and cooked in the tandoor oven) and tandoori kesari gobi (marinated cauliflower that’s barbecued in the charcoal fire).
Prawn entree with a rich coconut sauce, the Murgh tikka masala (chicken) and the Yellow Dal Tadka.
Local Pick: Ruthy's Yum Yum
What started as a roadside mom-and-pop restaurant has grown into a national landmark.
Bursting with flavor, and with low prices and friendly service, Ruthy's Yum Yum has figured out the algorithm to quick-and-tasty dining success.
Favorites include the golden-crisp wings, the loaded steak burrito...
... and their NEW ultra-high value specials, including paella and mussels.
Now with gourmet offerings and excellent service, it's no surprise to see Ruthy's reach "institution" status here in Anguilla!
Carimar's Summer & Fall Special
Spacious, comfortable and well-appointed, at Carimar, you step from your beachfront unit right onto the soft sands of one of Anguilla's best big beaches... Majestic Meads Bay!
Through until November 15th, Carimar is holding a terrific late fall special...
