Side Trip to Dominica. While in Anguilla it is possible to take side trips to other islands. With 4 friends from Canada we went to the Nature Island, Dominica, for 4 days. We could have flown commercial flight on LIAT through Antigua or American through San Juan, but chose to pay double and charter Air Anguilla to fly us direct (1 hour 20 min). Dominica is amazingly green and lush, with flowers everywhere.

Fan Mail from Stephanie Ferradino (email:
Went on our honeymoon last June in Anguilla and St. Martin. Loved Anguilla- and the friendliness of everyone on the island. Was originally attracted to it from a blurb in a bride magazine about Scilly Cay (the day we spent there was the best of our honeymoon), but then I got on the net- found your news and knew we had to come. I collected and printed out all your back issues- and really knew the island by the time we got here. I left my collection of news (indexed quite masterfully, I must say) at the Sonesta in their library and hope others have benefitted from it. We didn't go anywhere without it! Anguilla was everything we had hoped for (although we would have loved to stay longer) and I can't wait to return. Thanks for providing such an interesting and resourceful guide to your wonderful island.
