Festival del Mar, Anguilla

If you’re heading to the beautiful little island of Anguilla this Easter, don’t miss the Festival del Mar, a colourful celebration of Anguilla’s seafaring heritage. Taking place on Saturday 19 and Sunday 20 April in the usually sleepy village of Island Harbour, on the eastern tip of the island, this welcoming festival is a great opportunity to learn more about the local culture, with a more intimate, laid back atmosphere than the Carnival that takes place in the summer.

If you’re a fan of seafood then you’re in for a treat, with piles of freshly caught lobster, crayfish and snapper smoking away on the grill, served up with fried johnny cakes and salad. There are plenty of refreshments on hand too, with cocktails, beer, local rum and delicious homemade lemonade.

The sea is the common theme throughout the weekend, with sailing, swimming and fishing competitions taking place, as well as a children’s model boat race, beach volleyball and hermit crab races along the beach. You’ll also find many locals enjoying a game of dominoes, while DJs and live bands provide musical accompaniment all day and into the night. It’s a great weekend where everyone on the island comes together, and, as with Anguilla itself, the festival’s small and friendly nature is a huge part of its appeal.
