Why Go Now: It’s not all breezy palm trees on this 16-mile long Leeward Island that is beloved as much for what it has (a laid-back luxe vibe and beautiful beaches that are arguably the Caribbean’s best) as what it doesn’t (casinos, large cruise ships and mega-beach hotels). Those looking to experience an A-lister-worthy vacay on the sand are met with revamped hotels and new dining spots. It’s one of the most popular isles in the Caribbean, but you’d never know it from the blissfully crowd-free beaches.
On the Itinerary: At Moorish-inspired Cap Juluca, an ongoing renovation is sprucing up its 114 rooms and villas as well as its shared space. Lounge about on comfy rattan chaise lounges as attendants circulate with cool towels and homemade sorbet. Interior design fans flock to sexy Viceroy Anguilla, with its stark white lines and elegantly muted décor. Swing by Blanchard’s Beach Shack to nosh blackened Mahi-Mahi tacos and coconut curry mussels at blue picnic tables, just steps from Meads Bay’s azure waters.
