Anguilla is the northern most island in the Lesser Antilles. The island is small, only 16 miles long and 3 miles wide, but there is no shortage of great beaches on the island. For our short visit to the island, we chose Cap Juluca located on Maunday’s bay which comes with a great beach overlooking St Martin.
We booked during low season to get lower rates. Low season usually starts around the last week of April or the first week in May and lasts through the summer.
After our boat trip from St Martin, we settled into our junior suite on the second (top level) of one of the moorish-style beach front villas.
We lucked out and the occupancy for our few days was rather low. Given the Cap Juluca is a bit older, but more iconic than the new and modern Vice Roy, we were happy with our choice, especially with a prime ocean front view of the beach with at Martin in the distance.
The junior suites are located on the second floor of the beach front villas. They have a large living / bedroom, a large balcony, and a huge bathroom with outdoor private terrace complete with outdoor shower.
Our first night on the island we ate at Blanchard’s restaurant which is a short taxi ride across to the north side of the island on Mead’s Bay. But for the second night we decided to try Pimms restaurant at the Cap.
It was a great choice and the location at the far side of Maunday’s Bay is hard to beat.
We had a cocktail to watch the sunset and enjoyed the views. Then we were seated at our table directly on the water. When I say directly, I mean if you took a right our of your chair instead of a left, you’d find yourself in the water.
The Cap Juluca is situated on one the best beach on Anguilla and boasts fantastic views of St Martin. We enjoyed our time and will definitely return.
