Our theory: the best wines are shared on the powdery beaches of Anguilla. With many of the top restaurants in the Caribbean, it’s no surprise menus are paired with impressive wine lists and libations. We’ve named a few of our top beachside spots to sip a glass of your favorite!

Jacala

It doesn’t get more French Caribbean than Jacala. Martha Stewart recently named Jacala her favorite restaurant in the Caribbean and for all of the right reasons. Imagine tableside Beef Tartare and Snapper Meuniere while clinking glasses of Sancerre in this al fresco scene on Meads Bay. Owned by a French sommelier and master chef, Jacala is a must visit for foodies and wine enthusiasts!

KM: The night Omari Banks performed a cappella at our table at Blue at the end of the evening! It had been one of those perfect evenings—a glorious breeze, a delicious dinner and just the right amount of wine left to sip as we listened to Omari’s final set. He stopped by our table to say hello before he left, but ended up joining us for a moment. Someone mentioned a song and suddenly he was singing it, softly, clearly, beautifully.

CJ: What is your favorite experience at Cap Juluca?

MM: Choosing the best is a challenge because I definitely have tried to experience everything—from snorkeling in a secluded cove after being ferried there by one of the resort’s chartered boats to simply drifting with the current in Maundays Bay—but I think my best memories have occurred after sunset: a private gourmet dinner on the beach and simply wandering along perfect beaches with my wife.

CJ: What is your all-time favorite experience at Cap Juluca?

SM: One of my favorite meals I’ve ever had in the Caribbean was at Pimms, the fine-dining restaurant. It was my first time in Anguilla, and we had a table by the ocean. I had grilled crayfish (of course) and a chilled white, accented by candlelight and the occasional splash from a crashing wave. At the time I thought, “This is exactly what a romantic Caribbean restaurant should be” – and it still feels that way to this day.

CJ: What’s your most memorable indulgence at the resort?

SM: My first time at Cap Juluca, I had an amazing massage in my room. The therapist was outstanding, but it was the setting that took it over the top. We had the doors open so I could hear the waves crashing outside, and there was a lovely breeze that kept me cool. It was so much more special than being in a typical spa treatment room. After 90 minutes, he slipped out and I fell asleep on the terrace chaise, perfectly relaxed.
