Cap Juluca, Maundays Bay, Anguilla
Cap Juluca stretches right across Maunday's Bay (except for a little section at the beach's west end)! What's Cap Juluca like? Let me tell you...
Is your idea of heaven to lounge on
a talcum-powder white beach and have complimentary ice
water brought to your side? Try
Due to Cap Juluca's critical review in the Wall Street Journal, your reporter had to make the big sacrifice and check the facts out in person. So my wife and I decided to celebrate our anniversary with a single night at Cap Juluca, at the other end of the country.
Before checking into our Moorish villa, and even
though we had our own car, one of the many
attentive and friendly staff chauffered us in a golf cart to George's beachside restaurant
We had a Junior Suite, which includes
the famous garden bathroom. And it lived
up to its reputation. Tub for two, marble shower,
private walled garden. Makes you feel like one
of the rich and famous. And our minibar came fully
stocked with free drinks and a bottle of rum!
To assist you in forming your own opinion,
I wanted to give you a picture of the whole beach.
But the beach it is too long. I couldn't get it all in one picture.
So here is half of the beach, looking east
toward Pimms restaurant on the point. We usually swim
at Anguilla's Shoal Bay, but this beach is better. Warmer,
calmer, and with much finer, powdery sand (although Shoal
Bay has better snorkelling).
This is the west end of their Maunday's Bay beach? Does that
look like "no beach" to you?
I don't think so!
Most resorts in the Caribbean would kill for
a beach like this. The privacy in these pool villas at
the end of the beach is total.
We were allowed to sneak a peek into
one of the pool villas while unoccupied. The entry way goes right over your pool and into a spacious
one-bedroom villa. And with the narrower beach, these villas feel
like you are right in the water. Ultimate honeymoon
The landscaping of the grounds is lush, tropical, original and ecological (they won an award for use of native plants--more on the landscaping in future news issues). Here is one of dozens of cool, shaded pathways, this one leading past a pool villa to the beach.
