Love is in the air, love is all you need, love is a many splendoured thing, love makes the world go round – and it’s clear that it’s a deep, abiding love for this small island nation that brings visitors back to Anguilla time, after time, after time.

This special issue of TRUE Anguilla is all about love: the love our visitors feel for Anguilla and her people and the love Anguillians, as well as those who have chosen to live here, feel for the place we call home and the people who visit our shores every year. It’s been three years since the last TRUE Anguilla magazine and regular readers will see some changes on island, but rest assured, the heart and soul of Anguilla remains the same. And although we have lost a few beloved places, new, soon-to-become-favourite venues have sprung up for us to enjoy.

We hope you enjoy the beautiful pictures and the personal recollections and reflections or ‘love letters’ to Anguilla that you will find throughout this year’s editorial. Use this guide or tune into TRUE Anguilla TV on your hotel’s cable service to find all the information you need to get out and explore all there is to see and do on island and fall in love with this special place.

Welcome to our 9th edition!

We hope you enjoy the pictures, stories, ideas, and inspiration you will find within these joyful, family- and friend-filled pages. If you are new to the island, you will see that TRUE Anguilla is a different kind of ‘free’ tourism magazine. We don’t simply provide a list of places to stay or eat and things to do; we also introduce you to our people, the people you will call friends by the time you leave.

If you are a regular reader, you know that you are already family. We hope you love our new edition and that it inspires you to try different things and learn even more about Anguilla. TRUE Anguilla is proudly ‘made in Anguilla’. Every year we commission fabulous new articles from talented local writers as well as thought-provoking pieces from visitors who love Anguilla and who give their own unique take on what makes this island so special.

The magazine is as beautiful as it is because we work with a professional team of photographers and designers who live here and are familiar with our beaches, people, and food – we strive to capture the essence of Anguilla every day.

Thank you for reading TRUE Anguilla, we hope you truly enjoy it. And that you take it home with you to your own corner of the world where it will act as a reminder to come back to us soon.

LOVE Anguilla

One night I came upon a Travel and Leisure with a cover that said, simply: ‘Most Beautiful Beaches in the World’. Anguilla was featured prominently and the lead picture was of Shoal Bay East – a long and nearly empty sweep of white sand with a few palm trees at the far end.
