Anguilla is a diminutive, picture-perfect paradise. Only sixteen miles long and three wide, it encapsulates so much Caribbean flavour, offered up to its own, unique Anguillan recipe for island perfection. A luxury Anguilla holiday means something different for everyone - that’s why our hotels are varied and our bespoke tours can be tailor-made to your requirements.
Surrounded by Caribbean siblings, St Martin is only ten miles north and St Kitts and Nevis is 60 miles almost due south.
Anguilla is all-round beautiful. Spend a perfect morning chartering a boat and putt-putting in and out of stunning bays, but make sure to visit Sandy Island - possibly the most beautiful cay you’ll ever set eyes upon! As well as a patch of paradise (with snorkelling aplenty), you can enjoy fresh seafood and cooling cocktails at Sandy Island’s inviting central shack.
If golf is high on your holiday agenda, head toward Blowing Point for Anguilla’s CuisinArt Hotel - palatial-looking, with an informal, friendly atmosphere. As well as the 18-hole championship golf course, food is central at CuisinArt - the two onsite restaurants use fresh, delicious produce sourced from the resort’s own hydroponic farm.
Meads Bay and adjacent Long Bay Village offer scenic beaches and exclusive resorts, with the added bonus of Blanchard’s and Blanchard’s Beach Shack, hailed as one of the best Caribbean foodie experiences. Dig your toes into the sand and enjoy blackened mahi, fresh salads or a big bowl of rice, black beans and jerk chicken at the Shack. Alternatively, head next door to the more formal Blanchard’s.
Sample delicious delights such as tuna tartare with thai coconut, lemon juice and yucca, or grilled red snapper with sweetcorn puree and fava beans. Malliouhana and the Four Seasons Resort and Residences sit either side of Blanchard’s on this glorious bay. If sun-drenched suites, sumptuous style and laid-back linens appeal, Malliouhana is the resort for you, whilst Four Seasons is set in 35 acres of lush and verdant landscape, with two white sand beaches and a sunset pool.
17th century churches and a small heritage museum in the East End offer a slice of Anguillan history, fascinating for any history buffs, or those simply interested in discovering Anguilla’s amazing past. Wallblake House in The Valley is the oldest and only surviving plantation house on the island, dating from 1787, and a guided tour gives a sombre and elucidating look back at this island’s diverse history.
In short, Anguilla is endlessly popular for its unparalleled beaches, but this small island has plenty to offer, whether you’re an ornithologist interested in the diverse Caribbean birdlife, a history enthusiast fascinated by the Caribbean, a sun-seeker, a real foodie or an adrenaline junkie, set on enjoying all the watersports available.
Perfect for active families, honeymooning couples, and single travellers retreating from day-to-day life in search of that Caribbean idyll, Anguilla offers the perfect holiday for you. Let ITC guide you to the resort of your dreams from the many magnificent gems we have in our portfolio of luxury Anguilla hotels.
