Anguilla

Anguilla is an island of luxury resorts and villas, pristine beaches and turquoise waters where pelicans play amongst paint-box coloured fishing boats and secluded coves call out for Champagne picnics. Hidden away at the northern tip of the Leeward Islands, Anguilla is a mix of celebrity and traveller, of world class spa and haute cuisine, and of barefoot beach and mellow island life.

The island's beaches are consistently named as some of the best in the world. Each uncrowded, immaculate stretch of sand is public and resorts are open in the day to all, so you might be sharing your potent rum punch or grilled lobster with an A-list holidaymaker or two. Chartered yachts will take you to uninhabited offshore islands such as the Prickly Pear Cays, where you can swim in clear waters and float across to pure white sands for a day amongst sugar birds and basking lizards. Back on the mainland, paddleboarding, kiteboarding, deep sea fishing, glass bottom boats, catamarans and scuba diving are all on offer. Anguilla is home to seven marine parks with wall and ledge dives plus nine shipwrecks, and the night dives at Little Bay and The Steps at Little Scrub are not to be missed.

 

Getting There

The most convenient route is via Antigua with a connecting Trans Anguilla Airways flight to Anguilla. The connecting flight time is approximately 50 minutes. Anguilla can also be accessed via a fast ferry service from St Maarten on the Dutch side from the Airport Dock, or by local ferry from the French side of St Martin at Marigot Bay taking 40 minutes.

Note: All our inclusive holiday prices are based on British Airways World Traveller or Virgin Atlantic Economy flights to Antigua with onward Trans Anguilla Airways scheduled flight connections.

Get on your bike

For a more active day out, pack up a picnic, rent a bike (most resorts will offer complimentary bicycle hire) and head off to explore some of the 33 beaches that Anguilla has to offer. Visit Savannah Bay on the east end, one of the best snorkelling spots on the island, and, if you don’t fancy a picnic, stop in at Nat’s Place at Junk Hole for delicious fresh lobster, crayfish and his famous Johnny Cakes.

Set Sail

If the endless beaches on Anguilla itself aren’t enough, hop on a boat to one of the nearby uninhabited islands such as Sandy Island, Scilly Cay, Prickly Pear Cay or Scrub Island. You’ll find numerous day cruises on offer, or why not take a lobster lunch cruise or romantic sundowner cruise with local company, Tradition Sailing.

Sunday Lunch

Sundays on Anguilla are sacred and usually commemorated by relaxing with good food and music. Head to the village of Sandy Ground and enjoy Sunday lunch and live Jazz at Johnno’s beach stop, or visit the Dune Preserve on Rendezvous Bay where music legend Bankie Banx takes to the stage from noon to sunset. Music and food go hand in hand on Anguilla.

Delicious Cuisine

Dining can be informal or artfully stunning: with a wealth of choice from local barbecues and beachside stops to beautiful restaurants with stunning sea views. For casual, try lobster at the Sunshine Shack or the creative menu at Veya and for luxury resort dining, our favourites include Belmond Cap Juluca’s iconic Pimms, or Zemi Beach House’s signature restaurant, Stone.

Festival del Mar

Every Easter, all roads lead to Island Harbour, a small fishing village on the eastern side of Anguilla where visitors and locals come together to celebrate the island's seafaring heritage. Enjoy the spectacular national sport of boat racing and sample the freshly-caught and prepared seafood at a festival that showcases the best of Anguilla's culture, history and cuisine.
