Each spring season floods Anguilla with a renewed loveliness. From special springtime events and festivals to fishing and water sports in the warm, tranquil blue seas, there is something for everyone to enjoy. Below, we’ve put together a guide to planning a fantastic spring vacation on Anguilla!
Moonsplash Reggae Festival
Held on Anguilla during each March, the Moonsplash Reggae Festival is one of our island’s most iconic events. Hosted by reggae legend and Anguillan local Bankie Banx at his live music venue, The Dune Preserve. Moonsplash Reggae Festival draws locals and visitors alike. Reggae performers from around the world come to this exclusive event for a weekend of music and revelry, which remains one of Anguilla’s best kept secrets outside of those who are in the know.
The waters of Anguilla are calm, clear, and warm, especially during the spring season. With such perfect water conditions, snorkeling is a popular spring pastime on Anguilla, giving you the chance to see all kinds of tropical fish, vibrant coral reefs, and more.
Spring means the arrival of different tropical fish species into our waters, making fishing during this season a very unique experience. Use local charter services such as Junior’s Glass Bottom Boat, Gotcha! Garfield’s Sea Tours, and Nature Boy’s Tours to angle yourself fish species like lady fish, tarpon, snook, mackerel, barracuda, sailfish, and yellowfin tuna.
Festival Del Mar
Festival Del Mar is an Easter weekend event dedicated to Anguilla’s connection to the sea. From the largest seafood festival in the Caribbean to boat races, parades, and live music, there’s something for everyone during Festival Del Mar.
Since the springtime water conditions around Anguilla are so phenomenal, it’s only natural to want to take advantage of them and explore underwater. Scuba diving (especially with the assistance of Scuba Shack) gives you thrills beyond snorkeling. Explore Anguilla’s seven marine parks and see for yourself!
Companies like Anguilla Water Sports and Liquid Glow are happy to help you have fun on the water, any way you wish. Climb obstacles at the Aqua Park, go glow in the dark kayaking, or sail with Tradition Sailing Charters.
The Anguilla Regatta takes place each May and highlights our country’s national sport: sailing! Watch as local and visiting sailors compete in a race around the island during this traditional late spring event!
