Anguilla is a destination to relax. Opposite the hustle and bustle of St. Barth, the feeling that the island is going through is to be on vacation, surrounded by pristine nature and friendly people.

The island is now a haven for celebrities and famous anonymous people, who found on the island a paradise without labels and the familiar faces of destinations that are summer fashion. You can meet with Meryl Streep at the grocery store or Ethan Hawk having lunch at one of the local beach bars. Justin Timberlake is an easy figure on the beach Shoal Bay , voted one of the five most beautiful in the world , and Uma Thurman has already declared his love for the beach of Dune Preserve.

3. Dine at the Jacala restaurant, Martha Stewart’s favorite. Imagine a French chef proposing a sensory gastronomy on a Caribbean island. The result: dishes such as tuna carpaccio with sesame oil, goat cheese terrine and vegetables from the garden, yogurt soup with cucumber, and dessert a slice of divine rum.

4. Visit the Dune Preserve bar Wednesday night or Sunday afternoon to watch a pocket show of the owner, star Bankie Banx.

5. For lovers of well-being, the island houses a model hydroponic garden, with vegetables and vegetables grown without any chemistry. The vegetable garden is inside the CuisinArt Hotel and it is possible to visit it on Tuesdays and Thursdays at 11am.
