A Flavor of the Caribbean on Anguilla

For years, Anguilla lived in the shadow of its much smaller—though notoriously swankier—neighbor, St. Barts. More recently, Anguilla has made headlines for its upscale resorts, pristine white-sand beaches, and its diverse and delicious culinary scene. The island’s exceptional dining scene was a well-kept secret for years—one that rivaled any in the Caribbean, including St. Barts. Today, the island’s food is as much of a tourism draw as its picturesque stretches of surf and sand. Anguilla’s upscale dining scene is led by four standout establishments. Veya features a menu made up of an eclectic mix of fusion fare cooked up by New York City transplants. Blanchards, a beachfront restaurant that opened its doors more than two decades ago, specializes in contemporary Caribbean cuisine. Hibernia marries French cuisine with Thai and Japanese flavors; while Straw Hat masterfully transforms comfort food into elegant dishes each night.

The island’s fine-dining restaurants might be attracting most of the attention these days, but Anguilla’s casual eateries are no less spectacular. Leading the way is Scilly Cay Restaurant, a beach bar that serves only four items, barbecued chicken, lobster, crayfish, or fresh-caught fish, and pairs them with a mean rum punch along with other expertly mixed Caribbean libations. What makes Scilly Cay so unique is that it’s set on a tiny coral island with a small sandy beach that is only accessible via a free ferry ride from the village of Island Harbour. To get there, simply walk to the end of the dock in Island Harbour and, as the owners say on the restaurant’s website, “wave like an idiot to the island, we’ll spot you and be there in a jiffy.” Just remember, the restaurant is only open for lunch on Wednesdays and Sundays. For those seeking an equally intimate beach bar experience any day of the week, the Half Shell Beach Bar at the Four Seasons Anguilla is guaranteed to satisfy. The lunch menu includes standout dishes like tarragon-black pepper poached shrimp, spiny lobster rolls, and grilled red snapper with candied plantains.

As one might expect, however, the resort offers a complete range of dining options, including the Sunset Lounge, which specializes in Asian flavors and offers a vast array of sushi dishes; Bamboo Bar & Grill, which serves up Mediterranean flavors; and Coba, the property’s signature fine-dining restaurant, which offers dramatic views of both Barnes Bay and Meads Bay and allows guests to custom-order plates of ceviche.

The Four Seasons Anguilla’s vast array of indulgent food is not limited to only visitors or hotel guests; owners of the resort’s new residences have full access to the resort’s restaurants as well as in-room dining and catering. The various homes—which range in size from cozy, 870-square-foot, one-bedroom retreats to sprawling 9,500-square-foot, five-bedroom villas—are all brand new and are the only resort-managed residences on the island.

Anguilla’s Resort Way of Life
The white sandy beaches and the turquoise waters of the Caribbean Sea serve as a siren’s call for most—if not all—travelers looking for a tropical getaway. Many decades ago, discerning jetsetters in search of five-star treatment at isolated luxury resorts had only a handful of options throughout the entire Caribbean; but today exceptional seaside properties exist on most of the Caribbean isles. Even the island of Bequia, only seven square miles in size, is home to an upscale hotel and resort.
Anguilla’s Authentic Island Culture
For some people, kicking back for a week at a beautiful island resort is the ideal getaway. For others, a Caribbean holiday is more complete when it allows them to get a taste of the island’s culture—to feel like they’ve genuinely experienced and connected with that exotic locale. While most islands in the Caribbean have a distinct native culture to share, some—whether it’s because of difficult geography, limited infrastructure, or even safety issues for travelers—make it difficult for visitors to connect with it outside of their resorts. Anguilla is not one of those places.
