Want to travel solo to Anguilla for my birthday in January - good idea?

Jump to last reply

I'm hoping someone can give me good advice on this. My birthday is on January 31. For the past few years, I try to celebrate in a warm climate (I live in Brooklyn, NY so I know I don't have to explain why). I've been to several islands in the Caribbean, but never Anguilla and really would like to go. I love beach vacations, and don't need much activity since I plan on going by myself.

I went to St. Martin (stayed on French side), last year and it was pleasant, but I wasn't as impressed with the island as I thought I would be. The shopping was great, and the food was pretty good, but the island isn't as lush and pretty as I imagined. In addition, I feel there is too much development going on.

I've read other postings about Anguilla, as well as done some general research on the island. I would like to stay at a property directly on a great beach, with some access to restaurants and bars. I realize that things are spread out, however I don't really want to rent a car since I'm travelling alone. I plan on going to St. Maarten one day to shop, but the bulk of my time will be spent just vegging out. I also wouldn't mind some other singles around. Don't mind if I meet people or not, but don't want to feel like the odd woman out when everyone else is coupled up.

I like what I've read about Cap Juluca, but it may be too rich for my blood ($700 per night??). Any suggestions/recommendations? Please let me know asap, as I would like to book something within a couple of weeks. Thanks much.
