Anguilla is a stunning Caribbean island with some of the most pristine white-sand beaches in the archipelago, incredible watersports opportunities, and a wonderful and varied restaurant scene, ranging from local fare and typical BBQ to fine-dining.
Stay at Belmond Cap Juluca, set on the most stunning mile-long beach, which is considered to be one of the finest in the Caribbean, perfect for morning strolls. As can be expected from a Belmond hotel, Cap Juluca offers an exclusive experience, luxury service, a sophisticated ambience, and complete privacy and serenity given its secluded location.
Guests stay in chic beachfront rooms or suites, with King beds, private terraces, 24-hour butler service, and there are pool villas for even more privacy whilst sunbathing and swimming.
Belmond Cap Juluca is the perfect place to stay, with a gorgeous spa, infinity-edge swimming pool, beautiful sunbathing decks and beach lounger service.
There are four restaurants to choose from: Pimms offers fine dining overlooking Maundays Bay, CIP’s offers casual dining on the beachfront, and The Cap Shack is a rustic beach bar, where you can indulge in deletable BBQ and tapas with your toes in the sand.
Anguilla is a wonderful destination for an array of watersports. Sailing is a favourite local activity - try out a lesson, and sail to private bays for quiet afternoons lazing on the sand.
You have the best kite-surfing conditions in the Caribbean, and windsurfing and waterskiing lessons can be easily arranged.
The water is crystal clear and a lovely temperature - enjoy snorkelling over coral reefs, exploring on a glass-bottomed paddle-board to spot stunning marine life, kayaking to pretty coves in complete tranquility, or take a nature walk to see colourful tropical birds around Cove Pond, a coastal lagoon.
End the day with a cool rum punch in an oceanfront bar taking in amazing views of the sunset melting into the Caribbean Sea.
Every time I explore a new destination, whether it’s on an adventure holiday in Peru or a luxury beach escape in the Indian Ocean, I return home full of excitement to share the amazing sights I have seen. Through my own experiences I have developed a love of helping others experience the great wonders of the world; truly getting under the skin of the extraordinary destinations that are at your fingertips. Getting the details right, from which hotel is perfectly located for exploring away from the crowds, to which local guide is most knowledgeable on history or culture or art, is of paramount importance to me. I am constantly seeking out new and exciting experiences and exploring off the beaten track to ensure my clients are receiving the best and most honest first-hand advice.
