Within the Caribbean, there are places that are so beautiful that you may think it’s a secret. Anguilla is definitely the hidden jewel of the Caribbean. As part of the British West Indies, Anguilla is about a 30-minute flight, east of San Juan, Puerto Rico. People usually fly into St. Martin and can a 30-minute take a boat to Anguilla. The island is 16 miles from end to end and a little more than 35 square miles in all, but this little island packs in over 30 beaches to tempt sun lovers, snorkelers, sailors, and scuba divers.

Anguilla offers an amazing resort known as Cap Juluca. It has many villas that were recently redecorated. I have done many weddings here and everything from the food to the staff is always great! Cap Juluca has everything from tennis courts to water sports to some fantastic restaurants right in its facilities.

This island has the best beaches I’ve ever seen. The sand is literally like white sugar. It’s soft on your feet and it glistens in the sun. Hosting a ceremony on the beach is absolutely amazing. On this island, there are also some of my favorite restaurants including Blanchards, which has wonderful island cuisine that has also been made into an amazing cookbook. There is also a local beachfront restaurant called Mango’s and fits about 100 people. This is a great option for rehearsal dinner or even a reception. They serve a variety of foods; I would say that it’s International cuisine.

Even though this island is smaller than most, it offers a luxurious and relaxing atmosphere that attracts many brides and grooms.
