Anguilla’s Covid-Free, Ultra-Luxury Strategy to Win Rich Tourists

It’s hard to get there. And that’s partly why people love it.

Anguilla, like an African safari camp or St. Barts with its dive-bomb approach via plane, is one of those places made more special by being difficult to reach. The rare Caribbean island without a cruise marina, it has a tiny airport that only last month started welcoming one major U.S. carrier—American Airlines, with a direct flight from Miami.

Unless you’re among the visitors with a private jet, arrival is typically by a small Caribbean airline that flies noisy charter planes or by a choppy 45-minute ferry ride from nearby St. Maarten.
