QUIET HAVENS IN A BLUE SEA
By FRANCES FRANK MARCUS


Anguilla

On this small island known for glamorous resorts, the casual Arawak Beach Inn in the Island Harbour community is a bit of an upstart. But it overlooks the sea, has a pool and has been recently renovated. The 17 rooms lie mostly in airy, two-story hexagonal villas with balconies or terraces. The inn is a few minutes' walk from the ferry to Scilly Cay, where there is good snorkeling; the three-minute ride is free. (Some guests swim over, says the innkeeper, Maria Hawkins.) The rooms labeled deluxe, on the second story, have balconies and the best views; all have ceiling fans and refrigerators, but no air-conditioning. Cooking is home-style at the Arawak Cafe. From $175, plus 20% tax and service.
