If you're looking for luxurious escape, Anguilla is the perfect destination. Exclusive luxury hotels and gourmet island restaurants are all easily accessible by good roads due to the island's flat terrain.
Alongside its casual yet elegant atmosphere, Anguilla also boasts unbelievably spectacular beaches – in fact, its sugary sands are frequently ranked among the most beautiful in the world. Visitors to this luxuriously low-key paradise will also discover a safe and welcoming community, thanks to the low-crime rate and hospitable residents.
It's easy to see why the friendly Anguillians are proud of their status as Crown Colony of Britain – and their happy-go-lucky approach to life adds to the sheer enjoyment of this beautiful island.
Nestled in the north-eastern Caribbean, low-lying Anguilla is situated just ten miles north of St. Martin and approximately 200 miles east of Puerto Rico – a location that is convenient for travellers and residents alike, yet also preserves the island’s valued exclusivity. Anguilla, the most northerly island of the Leeward Island chain, is roughly 16 miles long, with a widest point of around three miles and a population of approximately 15,000.
One of the things we love most about Anguilla is the island’s preservation of its local culture. Unlike some of its neighbouring islands, Anguilla has been developed to the extent that it offers the perfect luxury holiday experience, while sustaining the authentic atmosphere that makes it so much more than just a travel destination. This is thanks to the welcoming Anguillians themselves, who are keen to share all their island has to offer with their visitors. Immerse yourself in the beautifully low-key way of life by foregoing one of the island’s many world-class restaurants to stop off at a traditional roadside barbecue, where local specialities such as chicken and ribs are the order of the day – B & D’s Barbecue at Long Bay, Big Jim’s at Blowing Point and Ken’s in The Valley all come highly recommended.
Visitors to Anguilla are also able to enjoy some of the best beaches in the Caribbean. Comprising 33 unspoiled public beaches, the Anguillian coastline boasts the most gorgeous white sands and tranquil waters, as well as an array of activities to meet all of your needs – from the vibrant beach bars of Shoal Bay, to the exclusive Little Bay with its exuberant variety of wildlife, to the endless stretches of Rendezvous Bay, a breathtaking beach ideal for leisurely strolls. Whether you decide to fill your days with nothing or everything, the sheer beauty of Anguilla ensures that no guest is left disappointed.
