Anguilla questions - flights, ferries, hotels, beaches, etc!

Jump to last reply

Hello. I am near the beginning stages of planning our vacation for next spring (yes, I like to plan early and dream ahead).

Anguilla is now on the top of my list, but I have a few questions.

A little about us:
- husband and wife, early 30's, love to travel, love great beaches, love to snorkel, and for this trip we want to basically lay back and relax (maybe one day trip/excursion).

Now for the questions:
1) if we fly into St Martin how long is the ferry process to get to Anguilla?
2) Are the Shoal Bay Villas too good to be true? Sounds like a great price on a perfect beach.
3) do we need a car? Specifically if we stay at the SBV? We love funky beach bars (which sound close by), but how about nicer restaurants?
4) is St Barths worth the trip? (vague question, just curios if it is worth the hype of a one day trip)
5) snorkeling - any options? Sounds fairly bland.

I may have more questions, like I said this is stage one of planning. I appreciate any advice.
