During our vacation planning process to St. Martin, we made sure to include a day trip to Anguilla as it is considered quite the hidden gem in the Caribbean. And that couldn’t be more true, it really is one of the most beautiful islands I have ever seen.
It was only a 30 min boat ride from Marigot, Saint Martin. After some bumpy waves, we had finally made it there and spent the day swimming in the turquoise water and digging our feet into the warm white sand.
We spent some of the day on Shoal Bay Beach and the rest of the time, we hung out on Sandy Island, a small island with only one restaurant present, five minutes from the main land.
We also had the pleasure of meeting some wonderful people there. From the cab driver Stoney that drove us around the entire island, insisting that we don’t pay him until we depart, to the inspirational couple that decided to take a year off to sail the world (check out their blog here). It truly was an incredible experience.
