    Anguilla

    Major Tourist Attractions: Sandy Ground, Shoal Bay, Heritage Museum

    Sitting just north of St. Maarten/St. Martin, Anguilla can only be reached by small aircraft, private boat or ferry from St. Maarten.

    Beaches, friendly faces, a couple luxurious resorts, and unique beach bars--Anguilla is a stunning island that is a little off the beaten path when it comes to Caribbean travel. Sitting just north of St. Maarten/St. Martin, Anguilla can only be reached by small aircraft, private boat, or ferry from St. Maarten.

    The name Anguilla comes from the Spanish and French word for "eel," describing the island’s flat and long shape. Though it’s not a large island Anguilla is large on high-end luxury and casual Caribbean charm. Most of the island’s activities take place on the beaches, the main entertainment hub being Sandy Ground. Sandy Ground is home to a handful of eclectic beach bars that supply visitors with good music, good eats, and cold drinks.

    One can’t talk about Anguilla without mentioning its main attraction, the mesmerizing white sand beaches. Shoal Bay is arguably the most famous on Anguilla. Located on the north side of the island, Shoal Bay is protected by a reef creating calm waters colored by a dozen shades of blue. Another stunning beach is Little Bay, but this gem is difficult to get to. This little slice of paradise is only accessible only by small boat or a precarious rope hanging from a cliff.

    If you’re traveling to Anguilla, these points of interest will give you a great feel for the island.

    • Visit Shoal Bay East. This stretch of sand is powdery soft and one of the finest in the Caribbean. Be sure to have a rum punch at Uncle Ernie’s Beach Bar.
    • Indulge and treat yourself to the high facilities of the Viceroy and CuisinArt Resorts.
    • Visit Prickly Pear Cay. This small island is located six miles from the Anguillan mainland and is popular among swimmers and snorkelers looking for a less crowded experience.
    • Get lost at Little Bay. This small hidden beach is only accessible by small boat or a rough climb down a cliff side rope. This secluded paradise is worth the effort to get to.
    • Experience Moonsplash. This 4-day music festival is one of the biggest in the Caribbean. Hosted by Bankie Banks at his Dunes Preserve Beach Bar, this event draws musical acts from all over.
    • Walk the strip at Sandy Ground. This beach could be called the hub of Anguilla and is lined with fun beach bars. From Elvis’ to Roy’s, Sandy Ground is a must.
    • Golf in the Caribbean. Anguilla’s championship golf course, Temenos, has been called “The Caribbean’s answer to the 18th at Pebble Beach.
