A Secret in St. Maarten: Get to Anguilla via Fast Ferry

If you love island hopping and getting two passport stamps on one trip this is for you. Plan on visiting St. Maarten this summer? You can easily hop a 30-minute ferry over to the neighboring island of Anguilla. My husband and I did this a few years ago and let me just warn you; the ferry ride is a little choppy on the way over to Anguilla but it’s very quick. Make sure you sit inside (unless you don’t mind getting soaked!).

A roundtrip fare will run you about $90 for a day trip (ferries leave about every half hour starting at 9:00am with the last ferry leaving Anguilla at 4:30pm). If you’re able I’d recommend spending a night on the island or you can simply just spend the day on Shoal Bay (one the best beaches in the Caribbean).

The day I went it rained off and on so I’m in definite need of a do over! If you go, please come back and tell me all about it.
