Anguilla is mostly known for two things: long, white beaches and expensive resorts. We have been there and we can confirm it is true. A vacation on this island quickly gets pretty expensive, even the simplest restaurants charge a nice chunk of many for a regular meal. And accommodation wise, the is not much room to escape the generally high prices. And if a hotel is really much cheaper, it has a reason. You really should triple check, some of them are pretty run down. We have not been back after the latest hurricane, we only heard that the island was hit hard.
