Anguilla, caribbean paradise

Hey you guys! For this week’s the travel diaries I am sharing a bunch of very sun kissed photographs I took in the Caribbean, where I lived for about two years. Let’s daydream about the summer holidays!

In october 2011 me and F moved to the French-Dutch island Saint Martin, a little piece of paradise. When my parents came to spend their holidays we took a day-trip to another tropical island only a twenty-five minutes ferry ride away: Anguilla.

In the morning we left Saint Martin’s Anse Marcel bay to go to the ferry docks in Marigot, the island’s capital. Saint Martin is a very diverse island where you can find as many deserted beaches as traffic jams. Time to leave paradox-island for a day to come to peace in Anguilla.

Anguilla is a British Overseas Territory, that means that when we rented a car upon arrival we had to drive on the left side of the road, something to get used to!

We discovered this little secluded beach by accident, isn’t it just like in the movies? White sand, turquoise water, palm trees growing vertically over the beach, a soft ocean breeze and then there’s the smell of fried chicken and baby back ribs on the barbecue!

These hammocks were the cherry on top! Snoozing after lunch -and- waking up in this scenery..

Rendez-vous bay was actually the first beach we had come across on Anguilla. It seems like an endless coastline decorated with sand and blue.

Wouldn’t you want to live here?

And then there was Limestone bay. Perfect for some sunbathing and having fun in the waves.

  2. These foto’s bring back fine memories of a beautiful holliday with you. The beach, the waves, the warm weather, the calm wind, all ingredients for a perfect holliday. And of course the quality time with you both we have missed for a year. We are glad we were there with you! Big kiss from your mam. :)
