Honeymoon: T&C or Anguilla?

My fiance & I are planning to marry in May 2006. We are debating between T&C & Anguilla for our honeymoon. We love to relax on the beach, eat at great restaraunts and maybe 1-2 days of exploring the island. We prefer resorts geared toward adults. Any recommendations?

I have not been to T&c but I think Anguilla is a wonderful honeymoon destination. There are wonderful and romantic restaurants. Exploring the island pretty much means exploring gorgeous beaches. For a change of pace, a daytrip to St. Martin will provide shopping. The only drawback to Anguilla is that it is not lush and green.

I have been to both islands, IMHO, Anguilla would be my choice of the two. Great beaches, many wonderful restaurants, no construction boom. Best wishes on your marriage!!

Have been to both over 20 times and really like both islands. Provo a little more built up. Anguilla beaches are great but Grace Bay beach is awesome. Anguilla restaurants are excellent but there are some very good restaurants on Provo too. I would probably go with Anguilla and go to Provo for my first anniversary. Specifically recommend Frangipani on Anguilla. www.frangipani.ai. Small quiet and intimate. Only eight condo suites on Meads Bay. If you want to stay there don't hesitate too long as people book a year in advance and they fill up fast.

Second the vote for Frangipani. It's such a nice location, and the beach there is the prettiest I've ever seen, even including Grace Bay, which is also lovely. You can't go wrong with either, but I prefer Anguilla.

I have been to both and I prefer Anguilla for its peace, quiet, Gorgeous beaches and Awesome restaurants (expensive though)...Turks is nice also but I thought a tad bit more crowded compared to Anguilla. Grace bay is nice but I prefer the variety of going to a new beach everyday...

I love them both equally and differently. I think T&C is more kid friendly, so I would pick Anguilla for a honeymoon. But keep T&C on your list (top of it even) because Grace Bay is one of the most beautiful beaches in the world. (and there are some stunning secluded beaches there too.) I just find Anguilla a little more romantic for a honeymoon.
Really you can't go wrong with either.
