Shoal Bay East, Anguilla
Sleepy Anguilla wakes up—a little—at this two-mile expanse of feathery white sand that glitters in the sun.
Stay: The quiet Shoal Bay Villas offer studio, one-bedroom, and two-bedroom apartments all equipped with kitchens, and steps away from the water; 264/497-2051.
Eat: Don't miss Gwen's Reggae Bar, where you can enjoy a tasty lunch, live reggae on Sundays, and a nap on an inviting hammock under a grove of palm trees.
Do: Take advantage of the bay's pure-white beaches, which are rarely crowded, and offer complete relaxation.
