Well, if it’s good enough for Justin Timberlake who opined: ‘Forget your face, I swear I will, St. Barths, Anguilla anywhere I chill’. An invite then to Netflix and chill in Anguilla with Timberlake and the jet set.
JT isn’t alone in singing the praises of the British Overseas Territory in the Caribbean.
Paris Hilton is a fan of the Anguillans and called it her ‘secret island’.
She only revealed this was her dream getaway after she’d left.
Jay-Z and Beyonce decamped to Anguilla in the early days of their courtship.
While Paul McCartney and his wife Nancy are visitors.
As are Denzel Washington, Liam Neeson, Leo DiCaprio, Sandra Bullock and Michael Jordan.
Although not that we know all at the same time.
For us we are restricted to watching on and living our dreams vicariously through things like Netflix.
And such as the World’s Most Amazing Vacation Rentals Season 2.
Each episode explores one unique, one on a budget and one luxury option from destinations around the world.
