Tagged: , , , , ,

Think the phrase “affordable Anguilla” is an oxymoron? If you know where to look on the island, it doesn’t have to be. While Anguilla certainly has more than its fair share of high end resorts and restaurants, affordable options abound and today’s featured property not only offers you accommodations at an astoundingly low price but also provides some of the best food for the money you’ll find anywhere on this up and coming culinary...

Elvis’ Beach Bar, Anguilla – A Home For Salty Souls And Royalty Alike

Tagged: , , , , , ,

While I recently named the Sunshine Shack as my favorite Anguilla beach bar, Elvis’ Beach Bar and the Dune Preserve were always a very close second. Both have managed to grow and expand without losing the charm that made them great in the first place, not an easy thing to do when the trappings of money tempt you to “get big” and bring in even more cash while losing your soul along the way. Elvis’ Beach Bar, located on Road Bay in...

Tagged: , , , , ,

Watching the sunset over Road Bay in Sandy Ground, Anguilla is one of those moments in your life that remind you how lucky you are. It’s almost as if the beach around you is stuck on pause as the rest of the world keeps spinning on by. Scenes like this one, filmed on my last night in Anguilla, also remind me why I want a beach bar on a west facing beach. You can’t beat the show Mother Nature puts on each night and she won’t even...

The Best Rum Punch I’ve Ever Had

Tagged: , , , , , , ,

Walk into any beach bar in Anguilla or pretty much anywhere in the Caribbean and ask them for their best drink and you’ll be sucking down yet another rum punch. The reasons for this are twofold. First, every tourist orders a rum punch because that’s just what they think they should be drinking in the Caribbean (and I’m nothing if I don’t look like a tourist with my multitude of camera bags slung over every shoulder I have). Second,...

View of Road Bay, Sandy Ground, Anguilla

Tagged: , , , ,

Our home for our recent 48 hour stay on Anguilla was on Road Bay in Sandy Ground. I’d obviously seen pictures of the area beforehand (I’m obsessive with research before a trip!) and knew there were certain vantage points from the surrounding higher area that offered you a breathtaking view of the center of Anguilla’s nightlife. However, I had become so enamored by everything else on the island that it slipped my mind...
