There are basically two functioning and well know webcams running on Anguilla and we have just updated our pages to show them (although I am still not convinced the one at Roy's is actually live):
- Meads Bay webcam, from The Viceroy - this is a great webcam - and actual video feed, not just still images. I wish they would straighten it out a bit though!
- Sandy Ground webcam, from Roy's - not sure if this is broadcasting live at the moment, but everyone links to this cam too. Nice view, great beach!

This is hot off the press release mill:
Cap Juluca Offers Golfers a Present this Holiday Season!
Cap Juluca to Reopen and Manage the
Temenos Golf Course; Will Open for Play on December 19.
Golfers will be excited to learn that Anguilla will be open for play in just a few weeks. On December 19, 2009 Cap Juluca proudly will reopen and manage Anguilla's first and only golf course, a $50 million creation of Greg Norman, the Temenos Golf Course. And just as you thought things couldn't get any better than this, beginning January 2, 2010 Cap Juluca will offer special golf packages including a golfer's dream package - Unlimited Golf.
This 7,063-yard championship course was designed by golf legend Greg Norman and first opened in 2006. It offers dramatic elevation changes, water features on 13 holes and, with the help of Cap Juluca's brand of hospitality this season, one of the finest golf experiences in the Caribbean.
Temenos Golf Course offers a golfing experience where sand, wind and water blend seamlessly with Anguilla's natural environment to present a golfer's paradise. Some of its signature holes include:
* Players being greeted by a spectacular vista of St. Maarten and the Caribbean Sea at the tee box of the 390-yard starting hole. The fairway descends over 40-feet to a narrow, two-tiered green sitting precariously on the edge of a saltwater lagoon. Robb Report called this first hole, "The Caribbean's answer to the 18th at Pebble Beach."
* Large sand dunes on the left and a saltwater pond on the right framing the perilous drive on the 440-yard 16th hole that plays dead into the trade winds and ends with an elevated green surrounded by water and protected by deep bunkers.
* The drive for the finishing hole carrying the edge of the mangrove thicket in a vast stretch of saltmarsh that winds through eight of the course holes. The narrowing fairway ascends forty feet through rugged terrain to a narrow green carved out of the native shrub.
Temenos Golf Course is just a short ride from Cap Juluca and tee times are now being accepted by calling the Temenos Golf Pro Shop at 264.498.5602.
For the 2009-2010 season, the greens fee for a round of 18 holes during peak times will be $225 per person. Discounted greens fees will be offered for twilight tee times.

The St. Thomas Yacht Club and the Virgin Islands Sailing Association together believe this is one of the sport's most unique match races, as it pulls together the best attributes from many other events and combines them into one of the best sailing venues in the world! The Carlos Aguilar Match Race is sailed along a seawall in downtown Charlotte Amalie with the courses set less than 50 yards from the spectators allowing for fantastic action views and race interaction. The event offers both an open division and a woman's division that provides for great sailing and even better prospects for after race entertainment. The rum and tequila drinks are all "free" as are many meals. The "reggae" music starts right after the de-briefs as does the dancing. Attending the CAMR will turn you into a match race lover for life. Please join us St. Thomas this December!
This certainly can't be good news:
PHILIPSBURG - Regional airline, Windward Islands Airline Winair has announced that it would be terminating the route St. Maarten to Anguilla with effect from December 1, 2009.
According to Vice President of Marketing, Claudio Buncamper, this is as a result of the airline suffering significant looses for the past several months, losses which the airline is unable to continue to sustain.
Don Mitchell has more.
Not sure what is behind this decision to stay open at Cap Juluca during the height of hurricane season, but it is an attractive offer:
Cap Juluca will Welcome Guests in
September and October for the First Time Ever!
To Celebrate, You Can Get Five Free Nights.
Now you can escape to one of the world's best beaches every day of the year whenever you want, as Cap Juluca is pleased to let you know we will remain open to vacationers this September and October. The decision to be open for guests continuously throughout the year was made by the resort's new ownership after completing a much acclaimed $22 million renovation. In prior years Cap Juluca was forced to close for resort-wide maintenance and repair in September and October, which is no longer necessary as a result of the resort's sweeping renovation.

Cap Juluca has a new executive chef with some great credentials:
His name is Rene Bajeux. He has orchestrated the culinary experiences for some of the finest restaurants throughout North America. He is one of less than 50 American chefs honored with the title of "Certified Master Chef." He has frequently appeared at the renowned James Beard House. And he is the recently appointed Executive Chef at the new Cap Juluca.
Born and raised in France, Chef Rene first commanded attention as the Executive Chef at Maui's Four Seasons Resort followed by the Four Seasons Resort in Beverly Hills and eventually at the Windsor Court Hotel in New Orleans, where he was awarded a 5-star Mobil Award, one of only 20 in the U.S. In 2001, Bajeux opened Rene Bistrot, an exclusive haven of authentic French cuisine in the heart of downtown New Orleans. Though Rene Bistrot was devastated by Hurricane Katrina, Bajeux persevered and collaborated with an old friend at the celebrated New Orleans restaurant, La Provence. He was recently recognized as Chevalier du Merite Agricole for his contributions to the French agricultural system, and is considered a leader in French-inspired cuisine.
As Cap Juluca's Executive Chef, Bajeux has personally crafted the vision for, and oversees the operation of Cap Juluca's three updated palate-pleasing restaurants. Utilizing fruits, vegetables and grains grown right on property, Bajeux's "garden-to-table" approach to cooking enhances every dining experience from the barefoot elegance of Blue to the Pan-Asian inspired dishes of Spice to the upscale "Eurobbean" fare of Pimms. His recruitment is part of an overall $80 million vision to refresh and revitalize Cap Juluca to ensure that every guest's visit is the finest in the Caribbean and among the finest in the world.
