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 from roadside BBQ’s to the finest dining experiences.
As this island has been formed from coral you will find an abundance of palm fringed beaches as opposed to lush vegetation. This makes the island a perfect getaway for sunworshippers looking for unspolit luxury.
There is lots to see and do on Anguilla from turtle hatching between May and November to the underwater magic of Stoney Bay Marine Park. Take a yacht to Prickly Pear Cay, Scrub or Dog Islands and take in the mesmerising views.

The island experiences average temperatures of around 80°F, with the Trade Winds providing a constant warm breeze. With no high mountains to block the sun’s rays and, in the absence of the type of vegetation that attracts rain clouds, Anguilla is a sun worshipper’s paradise. The average rainfall measures 35 inches per year, much of it arriving in short cloud bursts.
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.
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 it is possible for you can take a tour of the grounds and structure.
