There are few places in the world where I feel more at home while traveling than Road Bay and the community that fronts it, Sandy Ground, in Anguilla. From the views atop the bluffs surrounding it to its perfectly crescent-shaped beach to the numerous beach bar that dot its shores, Sandy Ground/Road Bay has always felt like coming home.

Tagged: , , , , , ,

When I started planning our day trip to Anguilla and its beaches (you know, for beach bar “research”), I reached out to various online groups for advice on getting around the island, specifically via a taxi service. As any longtime readers of this blog know, I’ve vacationed on the island twice before. I know it’s easy to get around, I know that the locals will help you if you become lost and I know that they drive on the wrong side of...
