Beach Vacation

Many of you, like me, are looking forward to a few days away after the hectic holidays and before the New Year starts.

I am dreaming of a tropical vacation and a favorite one to go to, for me, is in the Caribbean.  I love Anguilla and the simply gorgeous Hotel Cap Juluca.

While sitting on Cap Juluca’s pristine white sand beach, basking in the Caribbean sun and looking out over the peaceful waves of Maundays Bay, one is enveloped in a sense of serenity. Tension seems to drift away with the tide and concern is carried away on a light breeze. 

This tranquility is now as it was for thousands of years on the island of Anguilla when inhabited by a peaceful and gentle tribe of Amerindians called the Arawaks. The Arawaks have their origins in South America. Adventurously moving from island to island, the Arawak culture was established throughout the Caribbean. Evidence on the island tells us that the Arawaks had made a home on Anguilla as far back as 1500 BC.

My French friends love to go to St. Barts.  It is also a fabulous place to go when you want a warm break in a cold winter.

Saint-Barthélemy is a French island located in the Caribbean. Saint-Barthélemy was first claimed by the French in 1648, and except for a century as a Swedish colony, between 1785 and 1878, it has remained in French hands. Located approximately 150 miles east of Puerto Rico.

The days are casual around the beach or in the water but you can dress up a bit at night and feel really glamorous. St. Barts has a very active and fabulous night life.
