    Anguilla in a Nutshell

    While Anguilla's name often echoes in the glitz of hip-hop songs and the glamour of reality TV, the island's enduring charm and modest elegance truly set it apart. Despite being a petite landmass, merely 16 miles long and 3 miles wide, Anguilla has held a distinguished place on the travel itineraries of chic globetrotters for years. Its pristine white sand shores and serene ambiance have long been a magnet for wealthy families seeking tranquility and celebrities wanting to evade the camera's glare.

    Upon landing in Anguilla, you are immediately embraced by a sense of casual elegance and understated luxury that is as compelling as unexpected, given the island's upscale reputation. But the heart of Anguilla lies in its warm and welcoming inhabitants, a community of around 16,000 people whose genuineness and warmth quickly make you feel at home.

    Your journey from the airstrip or ferry dock along quaint, rutted roads offers little hint of the financial affluence underpinning the island. However, as you approach the coast, the curtain is lifted to reveal an impressive vista of multimillion-dollar villas and luxury resorts adorning Anguilla's beaches. It's a striking contrast that underscores the island's unique blend of unassuming simplicity and refined luxury.

    In a nutshell, Anguilla is a jewel of the Caribbean that effortlessly blends natural beauty, luxury, and a laid-back vibe. With its enchanting beaches, heartwarming locals, and elegant resorts, it’s a destination that leaves an indelible impression and beckons you back, time and time again.

    Stay in Paradise

    Accommodations in Anguilla cater to an array of preferences and budgets, shattering the myth that this Caribbean gem is exclusively a destination for the extravagantly affluent. Whether you seek the simplicity of a no-frills retreat or the sumptuousness of a high-end resort, you'll find a place here that feels like your own paradise.

    For those searching for an escape from the hustle and bustle of large resorts, the Anacaona Boutique Hotel, tucked away next to Mead's Bay, offers an intimate haven. This modestly elegant resort provides guests with a tranquil retreat where the beauty of nature is the highlight, not the fancy trappings often associated with island resorts.

    Yet, Anguilla hasn't forgotten its well-heeled and celebrity visitors who have been gracing its shores for decades. The island's pricier "legacy resorts" offer a blend of luxury, seclusion, and exemplary services, making them a favored choice for those seeking an upscale vacation experience.

    Alternatively, a villa's privacy, convenience, and luxury might be more appealing to those looking for a home-away-from-home feel or a space to host family and friends. Anguilla has more than 300 villas, each with its unique character and amenities, ensuring a perfect match for every visitor. These villas provide ultimate comfort and luxury, from sea-facing hideaways to hilltop estates.

    Play in Sandy Island

    A trip to Sandy Island is a quintessential Anguilla experience that encapsulates the island's sun-soaked allure. With 33 outstanding white sand shores decorating the island, beach activities are an inevitable part of any visit to Anguilla. You can seek seclusion in the cozy cove at Little Bay, reachable only by boat or a daring climb down a rope ladder. Alternatively, immerse yourself in the lively ambiance of Shoal Bay and Meads Bay, vibrant yet never overcrowded.

    Venturing to Anguilla's offshore islands is an excellent way to spend a day, and among them, Sandy Island and Scilly Cay hold a unique charm.

Here, the sun, sea, and delicious local crayfish—a lobster-like delicacy—await to provide you with an unforgettable beach day.

    Just a short five-minute boat ride away from the dock at Island Harbour, Scilly Cay serves up bountiful, albeit pricey, seafood platters under beach palapas. The real star here, however, is the famous rum punch, renowned for transporting sippers to an island state of mind and surprisingly affordable, providing a rare Anguillian bargain.

    As the sun sets, Anguilla's nightlife stirs to life. Thursday nights at The Pumphouse in Sandy Ground are filled with the rhythm of live bands. A few steps away, Elvis’ Beach Bar invites you for another round of their delightful rum punch. After a night of fun and music, you can meander back to your accommodation, the memories of the day echoing in the ocean breeze. A trip to Sandy Island is not merely a visit to another beach but a journey into what makes Anguilla truly magical.

These are 10 days of arts and craft shows, bands playing all hours of the day, local cuisine, and brilliantly colored parades. The boat races during Carnival are a thing of adrenaline-fueled beauty. Anguilla's Carnival is not as large as other islands', and this suits many people better. You get all the Carnival experiences without dealing with an overwhelmingly large celebration. Get the full Carnival experience, and visit Anguilla's trademark boat racing during this exciting, annual celebration.

    Speed Up to the Carnival Boat Races

    While you’re at Carnival, make sure to be there for the boat races. Sailing is the national sport of Anguilla, and the locals take it very seriously, and Carnival makes everything bigger. So the boat races are even more important. There are multiple opportunities to see races throughout the 10 days of Carnival, and you should definitely take advantage of them. The boats are built on the island, and they are things of beauty and efficiency. Painted in bright colors, they aren't built with decks, so the sailors use different materials to keep the boats stable. As the boats near the finish line, sailors will start throwing that material overboard to gain more speed. The spectators get really into the races, and their enthusiasm is contagious. You don't even have to pick a boat to cheer for to get swept up in the excitement.

    In addition to the BET sponsored Jazz festival, Anguilla hosts another, lesser-recognized festival: Moonsplash.

The whole festival is driven by the energy and star power of local celebrity Bankie Banx. It is a valuable event and venue for veteran and emerging reggae acts alike. Hosted at Bankie Banx's Dune Preserve on the beach of Rendezvous Bay, this reggae institution is going strong after more than 20 years.
