Anguilla at a Glance

Anguilla is one of the Caribbean's more peaceful and under-developed islands. This comes at a price, and visitors sometimes feel that this territory of the United Kingdom is a bit too expensive. 

While you are there, enjoy the pristine beaches and opportunities for snorkeling. Relax on the white sands and let the trade winds ruffle your hair as the warm water laps at your feet. Underwater, view brightly colored coral and schools of tropical fish. You may even get lucky and see a sea turtle or other, larger sea creature.

On land, enjoy the combination of beach rentals and traditional cottages as you travel around the island by foot, car or bicycle. At night, spend time at Anguilla's restaurants. Travelers can enjoy everything from gourmet to home cooked barbecue here. Afterwords, sip on a beer and listen to sizzling reggae late into the night.
