Anguilla Travel Guide

French expat Geraud Lavest oversees the kitchen where the café au lait is straight out of Paris but the mango-topped French toast has a tropical spin. In October, you'll find Lavest bottling house-made peach-ginger marmalade. The jars ($8) will also pack neatly in your suitcase.

The Scene: Using pieces of shipwrecked racing boats and washed-up driftwood, owner Bankie Banx and his best friend, Bullett, built the Dune Preserve in 1994.

Ask designer Fabiana Liburd to show you how to tie her signature cover-up in the local style.

The Scene: This small, picturesque resort beach bar gives a taste of the Mediterranean in the Caribbean-the owner built the property to resemble the Greek island of Mykonos.

Rum punches and reggae bands are the draw here. Get there early on Thursdays; calypso night draws the crowds.
