Little Bay
The British island of Anguilla has some of the most beautiful beaches I’ve ever seen. Sand so white and powdery soft and water so clear and blue that you thought you were dreaming these colors up. This place does exist, and it’s absolutely breathtaking. You won’t find big crowds of people on any of these beaches, and most of the time they are usually…

One of my favorite places to do this is at the Sunset Lounge at the Viceroy Hotel in Anguilla. The stunning sleek and modern design make for the most elegant and luxurious setting. Situated on a cliff over-looking the ocean,…

Moroccan Paradise in the Caribbean
Ever since I’ve been visiting Anguilla I’ve usually stopped by the iconic Moroccan inspired Cap Juluca hotel located on Maundey’s Bay. The white buildings against the white sand and turquoise water has always left such an impression on me. Since opening its doors in 1988, Cap Juluca is one of the first luxury beachfront resorts on Anguilla. The Greco-Moorish architecture is so beautiful, and…

Insider Island Guide – St. Martin/St. Maarten
Since I’ve been visiting the island of St. Martin/St. Maarten for over 10 years now, it seems appropriate that I write my first “Insider Island Guide” on it. Half French (St. Martin) and half Dutch (St. Maarten), this island is a cultural melting pot bustling with incredible people, food, activities and events. There truly is no shortage of things to do here, dubbed by…

When it comes to hotels, I prefer the more intimate boutique types as opposed to a big resort. These types of hotels provide such a unique and specialized experience. Upon walking into the beautiful red doors of Le Sereno St. Barth’s, you can tell that this is a special place. There’s an overwhelming calmness that takes over as you look out into the ocean…

St. Martin’s Treetop Jungle Oasis
The beach is truly my happy place, but sometimes it’s nice to have a change of scenery and take a break from the sand – still in a very tropical setting of course. Whenever I’m on St. Martin I try to make my way up to Pic Paradis (St. Martin’s highest peak) and stop by Loterie Farm to relax by the beautiful spring fed…

Exploring Colombier Beach
  Even with all the luxury and hustle and bustle, St. Barth’s is a beautifully preserved island with amazing hiking and secluded beaches. No chairs, restaurants, or much human inhabitance at all – just the sand and the ocean and maybe a couple of sailboats floating in the bay. It’s so refreshing and beautiful and natural. One of my favorites among these beaches is…
