All the necessary elements are there; sun, ocean, bars, restaurants, and choices for privacy or crowds of fun. From Sunset Beach at the end of the runway at Princess Juliana International Airport to a private snorkel location in Happy Bay, you pick the ideal experience.

Starting on the first of May, the Generali Golf Tour has a French Gold Federation competition at Temenos, a course designed by Greg Norman in nearby Anguilla. Hop a ferryboat and head on over.
