Birds migrate in the winter and so do people – to the Caribbean. This is a known fact.
Anguilla, one of the most luxurious Caribbean islands, finds itself buzzing with vacationers throughout mid-December through mid-April, when the weather is its most dazzling.
It’s no secret that visiting Anguilla requires a bit of an investment in terms of time and money. Most visitors to our fine island escape here because the island offers unbelievable luxury and privacy.
Yet, if you find an Anguillian vacation is out of your reach, then perhaps you haven’t learned of our August secret just yet.
Visiting Anguilla in August has a variety of benefits, all of which we think you’ll like. Intrigued? We thought so!
Wild beach parties, exciting boat races and plenty of dancing, eating and drinking. Welcome to the biggest event of the year in Anguilla – Carnival. Though Anguilla is 35 square miles, it’s packed with spirit and liveliness, which few events exhibit as fully as Carnival. The word “Carnival” may bring up images of Brazil and though the concept of general celebration is similar, Anguilla’s Carnival is it’s own unique festival.
“Carnival is hands down the most incredible time to live on, or be visiting, Anguilla,” exclaims Linda Hickox, owner of Cap Juluca. “The excitement in the air is palpable, the happiness is boundless and the entire community comes together for nonstop partying and fun for over a week. If you experience Carnival once there’s a high likelihood you’ll be back to celebrate it again and again every year.”
In preparation for the big event happening soon, we’re going to detail the what, why, where and when of the Anguilla Carnival, so you can enjoy the celebrations just as much as the rest of us!

“Why is the rum gone?” ~Captain Jack Sparrow (aka Johnny Depp)
Yes, rum and the Caribbean go together like peanut butter and jelly. It’s a marvelous combination that seems to have existed since the dawn of time. Alas, this synonymous pair has not existed forever, but it does have quite the history.
It all started with garbage.
Unique, diverse and downright colorful. Caribbean cuisine Anguilla is difficult to describe in simple terms because it is a mix of various cultures that have left their influences over the course of many centuries.
Aside from basking in the glorious sun and swimming in the brilliant blue sea, dining on fresh food enhanced with unique spices is a favorite activity in the Caribbean.
It’s just that romantic.
It’s not hearsay. It’s not too good to be true. The Caribbean is literally as romantic as every book, film and song make it out to be.
In the mood to plan a romantic getaway? We have the perfect Caribbean destination for you.
Creme brulee, or chocolate lava cake? However does one choose? Like everything in life, there are pros and cons to either choice, but at the end of the day it simply comes down to personal taste and need.
The same process applies to the pleasant dilemma of choosing between a luxury hotel room or a private Caribbean villa for your next vacation.
When it’s all said and done, vacationing in paradise is a remarkably delightful experience regardless of whether you stay in a luxurious hotel room or luxurious villa.
But, it’s always best to go into a choice with an informed mind.
What makes life complicated? Without getting too philosophical, let’s simply say choices. Why does anyone spend hours in the grocery store? Choices. Why do we spend so much time fretting over which outfit to wear? Choices. There are many more examples of this but you get the point. Eliminate choices and simplicity returns. Who knew that a “Scilly” little cay is the place to let go of choices and just be happy? We did, and we want you to know too.
The Caribbean is full of relaxing beaches, hidden coves, and stimulating jaunts. The only real trouble one finds while vacationing in the Caribbean is deciding where to go and when. See? Choices! Always the culprit.
So here’s an easy solution. Spend a day at Scilly Cay.
As if Anguilla isn’t exclusive and remote enough, there’s one special place where visitors and locals alike can separate from society just a touch more. Sandy Island Anguilla, is a quintessential tiny spit of sand amidst sparkling blue water where one may while away the day basking in Caribbean bliss. How exactly does this differ from Anguilla, or the Caribbean in general, you may ask? Well, Sandy Island is a cay, not an island, which means it’s simply a small sandy island settled on the surface of a coral reef.
Not an entire island by any standards, but a tiny slice of paradise ready to embrace visitors with it’s relaxing and welcoming vibes.
A few days into a Caribbean vacation may render you desiring to see just how remote you can be. In and around Anguilla – being remote is a way of life. But be warned; it’s extremely addicting!
