Touring To Anguilla
Flying Into St. Maarten
We flew from Charlottesville to Atlanta and Atlanta to St. Maarten. It was a little bit of a schlep.
Once I researched the journey, although, the opinions mentioned most individuals fly to St. Maarten and take a ferry to Anguilla.
As soon as we landed in St. Maarten, we had take a bus from the aircraft a really brief trip after which wait in an extended line for customs (about 20 minutes), then we met a 4 Seasons greeter who took us to the ferry dock.
TIP ON TIPS
Anticipating tipping, I went to the financial institution and acquired a bunch of $5 and $10 payments. We BLEW by way of them there have been so many various factors of tipping. So convey tons of money and bear in mind to avoid wasting for the return journey!
Funtime Ferry To Anguilla
The entire technique of attending to Anguilla jogged my memory loads of touring to Bald Head Island.
I used to be capable of prepare for the ferry by way of the 4 Seasons concierge. The full value was $440 spherical journey (!) however there wasn’t actually a greater option to do it apart from fly immediately into Anguilla. Positively issue this value into your journey price range. I used to be capable of cost the ferry to our room, which meant we might put it in the direction of our present card.
We needed to present our passports 5 completely different occasions and after ready in a bit open-air space, we lastly boarded the boat.
This was not a giant passenger ferry like we we considering it might be! It was principally a velocity boat, which was enjoyable.
We met our Anguilla BFFs, Brent and John (HI GUYS!), on this boat trip. It bonded us for the week and it was nice to have pals to run into!
The boat trip was about 25 minutes (and fairly rocky over the methods!) however it enjoyable as a result of the had beers and rum punch and we have been capable of chill out and watch the islands go by. And we have been so shut from our journey day ending.
Arriving in Anguilla
The ferry terminal in Anguilla was small and informal (I believe they’re rebuilding it). We needed to undergo Anguilla customs which was fast however extra passport exhibiting. Then we have been assigned a taxi (additional cash!) to the 4 Seasons. That taxi trip was about 20 minutes.
I believe it in all probability took about 2 hours from touchdown in SXM to arriving on the 4 Seasons.
Arriving on the 4 Seasons
FINALLY we have been there!! And we have been greeting with cool towels, ocean breezes, and welcome rum drinks.
Our Ocean View Suite
We had booked an Ocean View Studio, however we have been so grateful to be upgraded to a set!!
Our room was spacious with superb views of the ocean from the balcony the place we had espresso each morning.
There was a plunge pool on the balcony, which had a heater. However to be sincere it was fairly chilly even with the heater so we by no means acquired in it. We did flip our enormous bathtub right into a scorching tub although!
We additionally beloved the placement of our room in constructing 32. And we have been tremendous near our favourite spots: SALT (for breakfast and dinner) and the Sundown Lounge and Pool.
Our room had full-size bottles of shampoo, physique wash, and hand cleaning soap, which was appreciated (for a waste discount standpoint too!).
We additionally beloved the robes and slippers and switch down service.
4 Seasons Anguilla Swimming pools
The Sundown Pool is the beautiful infinity pool with superb sundown and ocean views. It’s adults solely and wasn’t too crowded – we have been at all times capable of get a chair.
There have been two different swimming pools – the Bamboo pool and Aleta pool – however since we like a view, we by no means frolicked at these.
The service on the swimming pools was excellent, with cushiony chairs, towels, and pleasant workers who would convey you something you wanted from rum punch to lunch.
Practically each hour they introduced by samples of smoothies, drinks, or snacks. And as soon as a staff from the spa got here round providing complimentary shoulder massages!
There was additionally a sunscreen station at each seashore and pool, so don’t pack any of your individual.
The Two Seashores
Our favourite seashore, Barnes Bay Seashore, was the “wilder” of the 2. There have been rocks with enormous crashing waves!
Because the week went on, the seashore shrunk. Our good friend Yeury mentioned each full moon the tide crashes like this and put a cliff into the sand which implies there may be much less room for chairs.
We spent our first few days down on the seashore, we ended our journey up on the Sundown Pool.
The sand was like strolling in snow – you’ll sink in 6-12” deep! Thus seashore strolling was very difficult haha. Nevertheless it felt so cool.
The ocean was a bit too tough for swimming close to the resort, however it was a lot calmer on the finish of Meads Bay Seashore.
The 4 Seasons had snorkel gear and different water sports activities like paddle boards, however it was a lot too tough for both of these once we have been there.
