While it may be paradise for scuba divers and sun seekers, Anguilla isn’t a haven for those that like to shop until they drop. If you’re looking for fashionable clothing or beachwear, Forbes Travel Guide editors recommend hitting up the boutiques inside the large hotels that dot the tiny island. That said, you can find one-of-a-kind art pieces all over the place — part of the shopping experience here is the hunt. Some shops like Cheddie’s Carving Studio have interesting art, while others are in the form of galleries like the Devonish Art Gallery.
If you’re looking for high-end, luxury shopping, you’ll want to hop on the ferry and take a 45-minute ride across to St. Martin. There you’ll find all kinds of designer shops, one right after another.
