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.

It’s no secret how much Road Bay and Sandy Ground in Anguilla mean to me. I always describe it as “coming home.” With its shore lined by beach bars from the north point to the southern end, it’s a given that this stretch of beach would be like a home away from home for me. It’s not just the beach bars and restaurants, though. It’s the people who call it home, who go to work there every day and who...
