Anguilla, British West Indies
Die-hard foodies and beach bums alike will revel in all that Anguilla has to offer. Measuring 35 square miles and located just 20 minutes by ferry from St. Martin, this tiny Caribbean island has more restaurants per capita than New York! Anguilla has also found itself rising to the top of several “best of” lists lately. CNNGo.com recently named oceanside watering
hole The Dune Preserve, owned by a local reggae legend, one of the world’s best beach bars, and the Travel Channel placed Shoal Bay, one of 33 stretches of sand on the island, on its list of the 10 best beaches in the Caribbean. When it comes to accommodations, options range from cosy family-run guest houses to luxe five-star retreats. For a destination wedding, you won’t find a more idyllic location than CuisinArt Golf Resort & Spa. The property boasts a state-of-the-art spa,
an 18-hole golf course designed by Greg Norman, a hydroponic farm and five world-class restaurants. Tie the knot right on the beach or at the golf club—a Mediterranean-style venue featuring spectacular views of the turquoise sea. For a more intimate escape, consider the 19-room Frangipani Beach Resort. Located steps from the sand, this property prides itself on offering the friendly service of a boutique property paired with the amenities of a larger resort, including complimentary kayak rentals, sailing lessons and wakeboarding.
