I’ve only been back from Anguilla for about five days, but it already feels like a lifetime. All I want to do is head back over there and soak up at least one more week of that island life!
I spent five beautiful days in Anguilla, celebrated my 29th birthday there, I learned how to paddle board properly (totally a pro now) and got converted into absolutely LOVING music festivals, but, only if all music festivals are on the beach, play reggae consistently and have the nicest slash coolest group of people surrounding me at all times, if not then I don’t love music festivals, I just love Moonsplash.
There are only 14,000 people living on the entire island and thanks to having one of the most outgoing and friendliest girls (Alicia) in our crew, we met about 50% off them. The locals of Anguilla are for sure some of the nicest and most welcoming I’ve ever had the pleasure of encountering and I sincerely feel as though I have left a tiny piece of me behind, or at the very least, some very much missed new friends.
Experiencing life at a slower pace has given me a real taste for it and these days all I really yearn for are the picturesque scenes of all the postcard perfect names like ‘Rendezvous Bay’ or ‘Sandy Island’. Not even the consistent cloudy weather could dampen my stay.
Take me back!
Special thanks to the Anguilla Tourist Board for the hospitality.
THINGS TO DO, PLACES TO EAT
Irie Life, South Hill for a local boutique shopping experience.
Tasty’s, South Hill for the best conch fritters and plantain.
Sandy Island. A teeny tiny island a short speed boat ride away for the most surreal lunch location ever.
Surf AXA, South Hill for anything surf related.
MORE TO COME
I went on this trip thinking I would just capture enough content for one big roundup, but there is so much to show you and I really don’t want it to be too inundating, so expect a couple more posts from my time there.
I’ll be sharing a few more food suggestions, touching on how we actually got there (private charter anyone?), what life is like as a tourist and of course, more on Moonsplash.
Until next time.
