“A comfortable place to stay that isn’t a swish hotel and is located on a shelving beach with warm and calm water; restaurants and bars within walking distance; guaranteed sunshine in late November; no jabs or anti-malarials required; a destination where tourists and locals socialise together; solo-female-friendly.
This was my wish list for a recent holiday, with a special birthday as the added incentive to opt for somewhere really special.
Little did I appreciate back then that Anguilla was and still is home not only to world-class resorts but also to charming B&Bs, self-catering condos and, more recently of course, a wide range of Airbnb options. My choice was the low key Carimar Beach Club, located in a prime spot on the white sand and crystalline turquoise water of Meads Bay.”
