Catering to both French and Dutch sensibilities (with a lot of American influences), this island is great for those who want a European or American vacation in a tropical location. The wealth of casinos, night spots and restaurants make this a no-brainer for Cruise Passengers and other travelers.
Anguilla's trump card is its beaches. Spectacular even in this region, where above-average beaches are the norm, Anguilla's wide swaths of sparkling white sand and bright turquoise waters teeming with tropical fish are something special. It is a point well taken by island planners and developers, who have built luxury resorts on those beaches. This is the best guide to Anguilla, excerpted from our extensive guide to all of the Leeward Islands, complete with details on where to stay, where to eat, nightlife, and all activities.

The draw of St. Barts is the island's French character in a tropical setting. There are plenty of coves and beaches, and wherever you go the villages are neat and roads are good. Then there are the hotels and villas. The hotels have been carefully planned to be small and precious, with emphases on exquisite service and guaranteed privacy. At restaurants the island's fusion of French and Creole cuisines is offered in gorgeous settings. Shops in Gustavia and St. Jean even offer Parisian shopping in paradise.
