Anguilla might look nice in pictures, but chances are you’ll have a higher quality of life in Bermuda, the Cayman Islands, or Turks and Caicos, under more or less the same requirements.

That said, there are significant tax advantages to living in Anguilla—if you can get a residence permit, which is no easy task.
