Anguilla is known for the natural beauty and quiet atmosphere, the 33 sparkling white sand beaches, art galleries, and other histori- cal and cultural offerings.
For seaside vacation experiences, the beach options are seemingly endless: Rendezvous Bay, Cove Bay and Mead’s Bay beckon with long curved strands of sand. Smaller pocket beaches include Limestone Bay, known for its snorkeling, and Little Bay, reached only by boat. Captain’s Bay and Junk’s Hole Bay are more remote. Shoal Bay East is undoubtedly the island’s most popular beach while Scrub Island, Prickly Pear and Dog Island are excel- lent snorkeling destinations.
The water, flled with Crayola-colored tropical fsh, is often so transparent it’s like foating in air. The resorts range from clean, simple and on the sand to some of the world’s best. As for the restaurants, you’d have to be a shark to get fresher seafood. And the beaches? Merely the fnest collection you’ll fnd on any single island in the Caribbean.
Saba is ideal for the traveler looking for a secluded haven, in peaceful and friendly sur- roundings. Rising steeply from the azure sea, the tiny island in the Caribbean is a magical experience far away from the cares and wor- ries of today’s hurried world.
Four small villages are as quaint and charm- ing as the gentle, friendly manner of the Sa- ban people, descended from hardy 17th cen- tury pioneers. Visitors feel they have stepped back in history, yet many modern luxuries are here to be enjoyed. Saba is a monument to nature’s best above and below the ocean’s surface. The famous Saba Marine Park is second to none. Saba is a magical place for scuba diving, hiking, admiring the nature or honeymooning!
This arid, volcanic rock of just eight square miles is home to an eclectic mix of iguanas, night-blooming cactus, and fabulous beaches as well as luxury yachts, designer boutiques, and celebrities. Peopled primarily by de- scendents of the original French settlers and transplanted Europeans, this is an island with a strong, independent personality. Through the vagaries of its history it became a duty- free port and more recently liberated itself from the administrative yoke of Guadeloupe. It is certainly the most unusual of the French West Indies islands.
The island of Saint Barth is the host of many cultural and sports activities as well as local fetes. Featured are nautical events such as the St Barth Bucket, The Cata-Cup, Les Voiles de Saint Barth and the St Barth theatre, music, and flm festivals.
Uninhabited, Tintamare is part of Saint Mar- tin’s natural reserve and is environmentally protected. The name of this undeveloped little Island comes from Spanish “tinta mare”. The color of the sea. A crystal-clear turquoise that you want to dive into immediately, in the anchorage located on the southwest of the island, in front of a beach of soft white sand. Permanent moorings places at the disposition of boat owners by the Reserve Naturelle help limit damage to coral and plant beds. A very pretty site for snorkeling along the length of the north point is accessible by just a few fipper strokes. A coral labyrinth shelters dozens of species of tropical fsh in a garden of underwater plants that have re- generated after years of degradation caused by Hurricane Luis in 1995.
