Honeymoon in Anguilla

We went to Anguilla for our honeymoon. We spent 5 days at Cap Juluca and then spent the remaining days in St. Maarten. Anguilla was absolutely breathtaking. The waters were different shades of blue, nothing like I had ever seen. The people were my favorite part. Everyone was so friendly and treated you like a family member. Our resort reminded me of Greece with the white buildings. We had a ground level room that had a pathway right out to the beach, it was perfect because we didn't have to walk down steps, we had our own private access. The resort offered a complimentary breakfast buffet every morning, which offered fresh omelets, fruit & a lot more. I would recommend to do this to save some money. The resort offered snorkel gear, kayaks and catamarans. Many couples were staying at Cap Juluca, I would not say it is a family friendly resort.

We only ate on the resort for one night and the other nights we ate at local restaurants. When I am on vacation, I try to eat local and support the residents of the country. The local restaurants all had the freshest food, whether it was caught on a boat that day or picked from a garden. Some favorite restaurants that I would highly recommend to check out are: Smokey's (amazing BBQ & margaritas), Blanchard's Beach Shack (perfect lunch spot on the beach), Da'Vida (lunch spot on the beach) & Tasty's (great local fish, fresh ingredients).

We can't wait to go back to Anguilla! From the east coast, it's about a 4 hour plane ride. If you want an island that is low key, friendly & beautiful, then this is where you need to be.
