Anguilla

Anguilla

Pristine palm fringed beaches

Anguilla, the Caribbean’s best kept secret, boasts world-class luxury resorts, modern villas, contemporary international style and mouth-watering cuisine with over 100 restaurants to choose from, ranging from roadside BBQ’s to fine dining experiences.

This 16 miles long and 3.5 miles wide island has been formed from coral and you will find an abundance of palm fringed beaches here as opposed to lush vegetation. Of course, this makes it a perfect getaway for sunworshippers looking for unspoiled luxury. The long stretch of sand at Rendezvous Bay overlooks the neighbouring island of Saint Martin and it’s a lovely place to spend some leisurely time enjoying sound of gentle ocean waves lapping against the shore.

There is lots to see and do on Anguilla from turtle hatching between May and November to the underwater magic of the Marine Park. Take a yacht to Prickly Pear Cay, Scrub or Dog Islands and take in the amazing views and peaceful atmosphere. Snorkel in the clear waters and you’ll see an abundance of marine life including parrot fish, butterfly fish and snappers. If you need some respite from the sun, head to the Heritage Collection Museum which is packed with a wealth of information about the history of Anguilla.

Anguilla’s only golf course is an 18-hole Greg Norman Signature Design Championship Course. This immaculately kept course is located at the CuisinArt Golf Resort & Spa – a wonderful five-star hotel which offers a wealth of other activities, a dazzling infinity pool, exceptional restaurants and a luxurious spa too.

When it comes to food, Anguilla delivers fresh, tasty and local specialties with aplomb. Expect perfectly cooked seafood such as snapper, grouper, shrimp and lobster as well as fresh vegetable accompaniments and succulent chicken and beef dishes. The island has some grocery stores too so if you choose to stay in your own villa, you could prepare a meal yourself and dine on your patio watching the sun go down.

Leisure & Activities

Cove Bay
What’s different about this stunning cove is the fact that there is no resort development! Situated in the southwest of the island, it does have some basic amenities such as sun chairs and umbrellas which you can hire. There’s also delicious barbecue food served at “Smokey’s”.

Prickly Pear Cays
Situated six miles northwest of Anguilla, these pair of islets are the quintessential Caribbean paradise islands. The snorkelling is fantastic here with beautiful corals and the odd shipwreck. Spend the day relaxing on the pristine white sandy beaches and take a bite to eat at the excellent restaurant.

Wallblake House
Built in 1787, Wallblake House is the oldest building in Anguilla and is the only standing plantation home left on the island. The building has been well maintained and you can take an interesting tour of the grounds and structure.
