Anguilla is home to 33 pristine beaches—some of which have earned “Best Of” in many recent travel categories. Visitors to the island come for the clear blue water and pristine white sand beaches, but many stay for the outstanding variety of restaurants. There are over 100 restaurants on the island, along with a uniquely broad spectrum of accommodations. No Anguilla holidays are complete without experiencing the rum punch, grilled crayfish, and barefoot elegance of Anguilla beaches; it’s “tranquility wrapped in blue.”
A Caribbean island typically conjures images of buzzing harbors lined with cruise-ships, white hot beaches with limited real-estate for your beach towel, and bustling, tropical waterfronts. Maybe you picture a coconut-based drink, too. Anguilla is not this island. Well, except for the coconut drink. This 35-mile-long island located in the Leeward Islands of the Caribbean is known for its slow-living and notable lack of the bustling cruise-ship tourism of neighboring Saint Martin/Sint Maarten. Although Anguilla is a British territory, the local patois is full-on Caribbean.
Where to Go and What to Do for Fun on the Island
If you are considering holidays in Anguilla, you should know the place is replete with water-based recreation, from swimming and snorkeling to stand-up paddleboarding, kayaking, and sailing. Local companies such as Anguilla Watersports make renting the right gear a breeze. The company also operates the Aqua Park, the largest inflatable water park on the Caribbean, nestled in Cove Bay Beach.
Sunset cruises showcase the island and its many bays, like Shoal Bay, Rendezvous Bay, Meads Bay, Maundays Bay, and Crocus Bay, at their most beautiful, set against the stunning backdrop of vibrant hues stretching out endlessly across the horizon.
Famous sightseeing spots located just off of the coast of Anguilla include the Prickly Pear Cays and Scilly Cay, home to snorkeling, swimming, and in the case of the latter, a family-run restaurant that will pick you up in their boat.
On the island, you and your guests will find that there is just as much to do on land as there is on the water. The golf course at CuisinArt Resort is immaculately kept, while the rugged and untouched parts of the island—as well as small islands just off of the coast, such as Scrub Island and Anguillita—and the highest point on the island, Crocus Hill, provide scenic hiking. Visit Dolphin Discovery on the southern side of the island for one of a kind dolphin encounters. Take a tour of the Wallblake House, a historic plantation located in The Valley.
During your vacation, you’ll find that Anguilla has no shortage of adventures in-store for you and your guests!
