Anguilla Holidays

ANGUILLA surely ranks as the greatest success story in the West Indies. Its transformation from insignificant little dot in the ocean into the world's most fashionable island mirrors the rags to riches tales of many of the superstars that flock there. It attained these dizzy heights by deciding upon its preferred clientele early on, masterfully enhancing its breathtaking natural attractions with a combination of culinary excellent and creative, yet controlled development.

Anguilla featured 'designer hotels' before the phrase was even coined. It boasts more gourmet restaurants anguilla - malliouhana per acre than Manhattan. And when you combine these not insignificant attractions with its laid-back lifestyle, thirty-three of the Caribbean's most beautiful beaches and pristine waters that can't quite decide what shade of turquoise is the most photogenic, you can understand why anyone who's anyone insists on beating a path to Wallblake Airport.

Yet don't come to Anguilla looking for the boutique-dotted towns and yacht-strewn harbours that distinguish other glamorous destinations around the world. Anguilla is very much a product of the British West Indies, its distinct lack of pretention discernable in its rustic beach bars, friendly islanders and emphasis on the simple outdoor pleasures. Its capital, The Valley, doesn't offer anything the sophisticated traveller would be interested in for longer than an hour or so, at most. And forget all about lush tropical scenery of St. Lucia or Barbados here too - Anguilla is a flat, dry island, it's scenic beauty all in its powder-soft coral sand beaches lapped by the bluest waters imaginable.

Most visitors spend the majority of their time enjoying the myriad facilities of their chosen resorts, world-class properties like Malliouhana and Cap Juluca offering everything today's demanding traveller expects. And when they're not playing a set of tennis, enjoying a massage in the spa or relaxing round scily cay their private pool whilst waving their children off to the kid's club, they are generally planning where they're going to eat that night.

Anguilla boasts more than seventy different dining experiences, the choices ranging from intimate gourmet restaurants to casual beachfront bistros. You can even hop on board a boat and be whisked off to the islet of Scilly Cay for fresh-from-the-reef lobster or crayfish. Chefs come from all corners of the globe, of course, and just a selection of the culinary choices in store include Caribbean, French, Mediterranean, Continental, Italian, Creole and Indo-Chinese. Wine connoisseurs will also be pleased to note that the island is home to two of the region's largest wine cellars at Malliouhana Hotel and KoalKeel Restaurant - just two more reasons to put this amazing success story on your list!
