Well Beerman which island next is all a matter of perspective – the fun is searching for paradise!



BTW the white buildings you barely see in the distance… That would be Anguilla - Picture taken from Friars Bay SXM

Beerman - can I take care of those cute kitties when you go on vacation (saw them on the other thread), especially the cuddly little one! I live in VA too. (Just kidding - I am envious you have a cuddly kitty, as our current one is not)

Carol - enjoyed your comment about being near the airport. My hubby enjoys being near small airports on vacation and runs to see the planes when we hear them coming or going. When we were on VG in October, we would stop at the overlook where you can see the airport when we were driving in that area, on the chance we would see a plane coming in.

We loved Anguilla. Here is my trip report from 4 years ago - http://www.virgin-islands-on-line.com/vi...;hilit=anguilla

The house we stayed in was a block back from Meads Beach. There was a row of townhouse style rentals right on the beach between our house and the beach but I can't remember the name. Looked like a great option for a couple or small family.

The restaurants were fantastic across the board. If you like food, Anguilla is a good choice.

We did one trip to DR and that was enough. We were stopped by the guards when we tried leave the resort to walk down the road.

Thanks for linking your report! Read it on my phone so I'll check out the photos and villa at home on big monitor. Like your husband...I would probably want to tell those 2 in the restaurant to get over themselves!!! We have reserved a villa on St Maarten, but we plan to spend a day on Anguilla, if the seas are calmer than what you experienced thanks again!

When we go again, I will look into flying over. There is a small airline and I remember the cost being around $99 round trip.

I am not a sissy but that boat ride was terrifying! I believe all private and public service was suspended for the next couple of days.

We still laugh about those wacky people.

A very nice feature of Anguilla is that some many (maybe all?) of the beaches have bars/restaurants and you can use their loungers for free if you patronize the establishment.

The boat ride to Anguilla was terrifying?? Normally it's pretty calm, certainly nothing as bad as going to St. Barts. Now, THAT is generally ROUGH!!

Yes, it was. I had rough crossing in the North Sea and North Atlantic and going to Anguilla scared me more.

The seas were crazy rough for most of our trip. The boat captain did compare our trip to going to St. Barts, which made my decision that we will likely never go to St. Barts.
