A cay just a few miles off the coast of Anguilla, Sandy Island is best described as a spit of land in the middle of the sea. It’s absolute paradise and very romantic. You and your sweetheart will hop aboard the “Happiness” for the short ride there, choose one of four delicious entrees made fresh every day, sip on incredible rum libations and ponder the magnificence of life and love. Well, it isn’t for us to say what you’ll talk about, but with the spectacular surroundings and peacefully marooned ambiance, you may not need to say much at all.
Bare Your Hearts to One Another Under the Star-Filled Caribbean Night Sky
Anguilla has beautiful, calm weather, which results in clear night skies. It’s lovely to go for a romantic beach stroll during the day, and it’s even more romantic to do so at night under the star streaked sky. Most likely you won’t have to go far. If you’re staying at a beachfront resort with its own beach, such as Cap Juluca’s mile-long Maundays Bay, all you’ll have to do is step right out of your front door. You can even request cocktails for your midnight stroll.
