Whether you want to make the most of the stunning seafront or explore the many other fantastic sights of the island, you’ll find an incredible range of things to do on Anguilla.
Take in the beautiful beaches
Anguilla has some of the most gorgeous soft white sand beaches in the Caribbean. Visit Shoal Bay, one of the finest beaches in the world and if it’s too busy you have another 32 to choose from.
Pick from the gorgeous Rendezvous Bay, Meads Bay, Cove Bay or Little Bay; one is probably within walking distance of your chosen resort. The water quality around the island is very high; perfect for swimming, snorkelling and scuba diving.
There are a surprising variety of sporting activities available if you’re getting restless. Go horse riding at the Seaside or Cliffside Stables and ride along the sandy beach or into the ocean. Pony rides are also available for children.
If you’re more in the mood for water sports, you can enjoy some unforgettable snorkelling experiences or, back on dry land, a visit to Cap Juluca golf course for a few rounds.
Anguilla is home to a surprising diversity of cultural attractions; the island has a rich heritage reflected in the many art galleries dotted around. There are also a huge range of festivals running at different times throughout the year.
The nautical Festival Del Mar takes place during Easter every year and one of the highlights is the Deep Sea Fishing Tournament where local fishermen attempt to catch the largest fish they can. If you’re travelling in Anguilla around this time it really should not be missed.
There’s also the annual three-day Anguilla Yacht Regatta that runs in May and for less experienced sailors there are boat trips out on the beautiful Caribbean Sea.
