Do you have your Tranquilitee? 👕💗🌴
Welcome to the tip of the east coast, Windward Point. Like the far western tip of Anguilla, the eastern tip is free of Anguilla villas, mansions, or any other structure (except for the beacon). If you want seclusion and wild open ocean, Windward Point just may be for you!
Let's see where we are on the island...
If you were to drive from The Valley in the heart of Anguilla and head East till land ran out, Windward Point is where you'd stop. And in fact, if you do that, you can get pretty close to the most easterly tip by car before you have to stop, get out and walk.
The Rocky Mountain!
We've taken the trail several times, and we've always been greatly rewarded...
The views stretch forever!
Look west, and you'll find miles of Anguilla.
Further east? Scrub Island!
Then of course, to the south is the prominent St. Martin.
And... on a clear day... you can even see St. Barts way in the distance!
And you won't have to share it with anyone.
Up 'n' Over to St. Martin!
Watch Out For the Cacti!
Are Those Vultures?
There is never anyone else on Windward Point.
Most people don't want to make the drive.
You can be totally at ease here, with nothing but the sound of the roaring waves to keep you company.
Wild Waves Pound the Beach
Same Beach, Other Direction
Well, I guess I shouldn't say totally alone.
A visitor like this just may drop by!
She swam by and spouted "hello" while we were on a 'round the island boat ride near Windward Point.
We were thrilled! How often do you stumble upon a mother Humpback and her baby?
Apparently, not often in Anguilla. Even Shaun (the Captain of the Sea Grape) and his first mate, Jeff, who are out on the water all of the time, couldn't contain their excitement!
We followed the Humpbacks as far and for as long as we could!
Here is another shot of Windward Point, snapped on our 'round the island sea tour.
While Windward Point has so much to offer those of us in tune with nature, it doesn't provide much in terms of established lodging.
The point holds no homes. But I'd love to have a home on the top of the small "mountain" at the very tip...
The Top of the Tip!
(Scrub Island in the background!)
Isn't that just spectacular? No homes... no intrusion... just peace!
There hasn't been much talk of Anguilla real estate opportunities on Windward Point. There are plots of land available on nearby Captain's Bay, Island Harbour and in the Savannah and Sile Bay area. The whole Scrub Island has real estate potential, too.
It's always worth asking our favorite real estate agent, Jackie Pascher.
Of course, if you do find a piece of Anguilla real estate out on Windward Point, that seclusion means that you would have to bring in your own electricity, too! Seclusion has its price I guess ;-)
