This island getaway is perfect if you want to avoid the crowds, trade in fir trees for palm trees and white snow for white sand. Anguilla is known for its exclusivity and that exclusivity comes at a price. If money is no object, enjoy Christmas services in old churches of all denominations and lots of singing and dancing.
