Wildlife and marine life Anguilla adventure activities
Anguilla adventure activities on the wildlife front offer limited attractions although there are some birdwatching opportunities. There is no rainforest, and scrub and low trees cover most of the island, so Anguilla wildlife is somewhat limited.
Wildlife is mainly limited to goats, lizards and crabs. The island does have six marine parks and some big wrecks that teem with fish so, if you like Scuba diving, you’ll find many underwater adventures to enjoy.

Anguilla is a small flat coral island covering 35 square miles. It is the most northerly of the Leeward Islands. The island is a gourmet hotspot and boasts 33 unspoilt beaches, five star luxury hotels and chic vacation villas.
The island is a popular exclusive Caribbean hideaway for celebrities and VIPs. The near-empty beaches are blessed with powder white sand. The sleepy island is known for its tranquillity, in contrast to nearby lively dual-nation island St Martin / Sint Maarten.
Mass tourism is unknown here and strict development laws mean hotels are classy, small and expensive. Find out more about the island in our articles about Anguilla.
