Anguilla’s peaceful island haven is blessed with a low-key elegance
Anguilla appears as little more than a dot on the Caribbean map, but it is earning itself a growing reputation. This is one of the region’s ultimate paradisiacal retreats. The locals are welcoming, and the resorts quiet and peaceful. There is a low-key elegance to the yachts sliding into the harbour, to the graceful local cuisine and to the excellent accommodation options.
The island offers over 30 picturesque white coral-sand beaches. There are long, luxurious stretches like Rendezvous Bay, overlooking neighbouring Saint Martin island, or you can find secluded coves which you can only reach by boat, such as Little Bay.
Should you tire of the beach and swimming in the clear blue shallows on your holiday in Anguilla, you can visit East End Pond, a wildlife conservation site packed with exotic flora and fauna. We especially recommend a trip to Big Spring Cave, another protected area, which features ancient rock carvings by this island’s original inhabitants.
