Anguilla vs St. Barth's - can you help compare and contrast?

Jump to last reply

Hey folks. After a year+ of hiatus we are gearing up for another trip and can use some advice between Anguilla and St. Barths. Some key points/criteria for our island choices:

- BEACHES - quiet, calm, and the fewer people the better
- we prefer villas over hotels/resorts
- fine dining and nightlife not a major thing, as we like to cook at the villa
- great local watering holes and street food we like very much
- local bands/fish frys we do try to hit
- cost of groceries/supplies - I know its Euros at St. Barth's so that worries us
- cheap rum and beer a must!! = )

We are planning to go in the May time frame, right after peak season, and intends to rent a car.

Any suggestions and advice are welcome!
