We call them “rum punch islands.” You can call them pocket-sized paradises where there’s absolutely nothing to distract from your Caribbean priorities: chilling at the bar; soaking up the sun; grazing on some good food; and having a great time.

Sandy Island, Anguilla

Hop aboard Happiness, Joy or Bliss (the trio of boats that take you to Sandy from Sandy Ground pier) and spend an afternoon swinging in a hammock while being serenaded by the “Wind and Waves band – ” preferably with JoJo’s Mount Gay-and-Malibu rum punch in your hand.
