When you dream of your ultimate vacation getaway, the Caribbean Islands is probably one of the first warm weather destinations that comes to mind, right? The island of St. Barth’s is the most popular of the chain, but it’s also the priciest. Don’t have a lot of money to spend on a beach vacation? Just venture to Saba — it’s been dubbed the hidden gem of the Caribbean. And unlike St. Barth’s and some of its sister islands, all of the natives speak English, so there’s no language barrier.
Take a short boat ride over to Scilly Cay on the island of Anguilla. Trust us, you won’t want to miss out on this. Scilly Cay is both an island and a restaurant because the only thing situated on the tiny, remote island is a restaurant. You can’t make dinner reservations here, though, because they only serve lunch: no electricity on the island means that it's only open during the daylight hours. Don’t worry, the restaurant's different approach won’t compromise a fine dining experience, as all of the food is prepared fresh everyday. While you're lingering over the menu, try the famous rum punch. Somehow, it always makes that difficult decision much easier. But, be careful: the drinks are strong and the blistering sun can render the effects of alcohol very deceiving.
