East of Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands and north of St Maarten, Anguilla is one of the most northerly of the Leeward Islands and is smaller than some of its Caribbean counterparts, but what it lacks in size, it makes up for in luxurious hotels, gourmet restaurants, and long stretches of pure white, talcum powder sand on picture-postcard beaches, fringed by coconut palms. The best beaches in the Caribbean? Probably. While away sunny afternoons at the beach bars spilling onto the sand, drinking rum punch and listening to addictive Caribbean tunes. There are also numerous islets and secluded coves to explore by boat or kayak, with colourful reefs to snorkel around, while its excellent examples of rock art are a sign of its centuries-old history.
Now attracting a salubrious crowd, Anguilla is exclusive, but still manages to retain much of its sleepy backwater charm, which it showcases to those who crave some serenity in this off-the-beaten-track Caribbean sanctuary. A luxury vacation in Anguilla is a great alternative to other busier Caribbean islands - but if you want the best of both worlds, the shops, bars and restaurants of St Maarten and St Barths aren't far away.
