Anguilla, a British Overseas Territory in the Eastern Caribbean, comprises a small main island and several offshore islets. Its beaches range from long sandy stretches like Rendezvous Bay, overlooking neighboring Saint Martin island, to secluded coves reached by boat, such as at Little Bay. Protected areas include Big Spring Cave, known for its prehistoric petroglyphs, and East End Pond, a wildlife conservation site.
Another girls trip, while fun, Anguilla was a one and done for me. The water is clear and beautiful, the sands are white but the country has struggled recovering from many damaging hurricanes.
There are abandoned buildings everywhere. I was surprised that the locals weren’t more friendly, since their sole income there is tourism. Getting there was a bit of a struggle, since you have to go through customs a few times and you are scolded to tip the porters, before you do. I always tip, but I dont want someone in my face insisting I do so.
I did enjoy the fresh seafood and of course the very famous cocktail The Painkiller. However, I wont be back.
