A small, low lying coral island, Anguilla is entirely unspoilt and offers unrivalled ocean views with romantic sunset vistas. Fringed by shimmering white sands, shaded by coconut palms and filled with colourful breezy beach bars, this delightful island is a Caribbean dream.

Imagine electric blue seas and 12 miles of beautiful beaches, a gentle breeze and a distinctly laid-back pace of living: this is the perfect destination for the most discerning of travellers. Explore the incomparable charm of the Caribbean, from turtle hatching between May and November to the underwater magic of Stoney Bay Marine Park. Divers can venture deep under the water’s surface and discover intact shipwrecks submerged off Sail Reef, north of the island. Take a yacht to Prickly Pear Cay, Scrub Island or Dog Island and take in the mesmerising views. The hotels and restaurants are of a very high standard and service is impeccable. Visitors can take a day trip to Scilly Cay where they choose their own Anguillan spiny lobster from the day’s catch and have it cooked to perfection, while Blanchards and Straw Hat at Meads Bay serve up some of the freshest ocean fare in stylish and intimate surroundings. An island bursting with a joyful atmosphere, Anguilla is home to lively locals, sizzling barbecues, feisty rum punches and live reggae music that you can’t help but enjoy.
