Anguilla in a nutshell

Anguilla is a small flat coral island covering 35 square miles and is the most northerly of the Leeward Islands in the Lesser Antilles. Interestingly, the island is also a gourmet hotspot as well as an exclusive Caribbean vacation hideaway. Furthermore the island boasts 33 unspoilt beaches, a range of five star exclusive accommodation and chic vacation villas.

Anguilla is a popular tropical retreat for celebrities and VIPs seeking a discrete luxury vacation in the Caribbean. Also, the near-empty beaches are blessed with powder white sand and the sleepy island is known for its tranquillity. In fact, the island is quite a contrast to nearby dual-nation island of St Martin / Sint Maarten.

Mass tourism is unknown in Anguilla and strict development laws mean that hotels are classy, small and expensive. Furthermore, most visitors choose Anguilla for a luxury Caribbean vacation because of the beautiful beaches, plus the temptation of the island’s reputation for good food.

There are around 100 restaurants and eating places, and some fabulous restaurants, within just 35 square miles. And finally… vacations in Anguilla are really all about chilling out and eating out.

Why visit Anguilla

If luxury is important, you’ll find accommodation in Anguilla is top of the range. There are fabulous five star hotels, and mega luxury villas to rent in Anguilla. Restaurants in Anguilla range from roadside shacks to sophisticated fine dining establishments: eating out is unbelievably good.

In addition, Anguilla is a bit of an ‘arty’ island too, and the white sand beaches are gorgeous.

While you’re in Anguilla

Spend a fun day or evening at the ‘Pelican Trail’ where there are nearly 500 wooden steps down the Katouche Bay cliff side and some eco-friendly gazebos. At the bottom there’s a platform to dive from, kayaks with glass bottoms, and great snorkelling.

Take a five-minute boat crossing to Sandy Island too – there’s a beach bar, restaurant, and a coral reef offering great snorkelling. Divers should head for the underwater canyon at Prickly Pear Cays, it’s spectacular.

A UNESCO World Heritage Site – Fountain Cavern – is currently being developed, so watch this space… it’s going to be an interesting underground cavern to visit when it opens.

Anyone interested in stamps should make a beeline for the Philatelic Bureau in the capital (The Valley) to check out the collection: Anguillan stamps are beautifully designed.
