Set Like a Jewel in a Turquoise Sea
Being just a small step off the beaten path has helped to protect Anguilla’s character and exclusivity, and to preserve its pristine landscape and pearl white beaches. About 16 miles long and 3 miles across at its widest point, it is low-lying and ringed by more than 33 of the most beautiful beaches in the world, all of pristine white sand and miraculously uncrowded. Quiet roads lead to quaint villages, majestic hotels and romantic restaurants on all corners of the island. There are no language problems as Anguilla is a British Overseas Territory, and while the official currency is the Eastern Caribbean Dollar, the US dollar is widely accepted.
Warm sunny days and star-filled nights are the norm year round, with an average temperature of 80ºF and gentle trade wind breezes. Water temperatures are around 70ºF-80ºF, perfect for swimming, and though high surf conditions are rare, Anguilla is heaven for wind and kite surfers, also for sailors as yacht racing is the main island sport. Apart from the joys of being in or on the water, on-land sports facilities include an 18-hole championship-level golf course, tennis courts, state-of-the-art fitness clubs and quiet roads ideal for cycling.
That’s just half the story – the island also boasts some of the finest dining in the Caribbean, ranging from seafood specialties to top-class French cuisine and fine wines (one hotel recently earned the Wine Spectator’s Grand Award), from beach clubs and reggae venues to elegant establishments with superb dining choices. The main town, named The Valley, provides all the usual services and a range of shopping options including boutiques, arts and crafts and many more delights. With near perfect weather, blue waters and balmy trade winds, Anguilla offers the best of the good life set to a slow and casual island tempo.
