The Caribbean islands are gifted with some of the most amazing beaches on the planet – and the beautiful little island of Anguilla is no exception. Lined with palm trees and surrounded by turquoise ocean, it should surely remind you of the postcard-pictures that come to mind when you imagine the Caribbean. The white sand beaches of Anguilla are considered some of the best in the world – but you don’t have to limit yourself to the beaches as you can always go kayaking, snorkeling or scuba diving – there are some amazing coral reefs waiting to be discovered just beyond the coast.
Anguilla, which is a British Overseas territory has a rich history which can be dated back to the times when the natives (known as Arawaks) started to settle here. Using rocks as brushes and caves as their canvas, they showcased their creative skills – and rock art dating back to this time is still being discovered! To know more about the history of the Arawaks, you can visit the Heritage Collection Museum (the only museum on the island) in East End Village. After exploring its fascinating history, you can go on a scenic drive across the island or hire a bicycle and explore it at a slower pace – the flat surface of the island makes cycling a breeze. Spend your days soaking up the sun or exploring art-galleries, and your nights hopping beach bars and enjoying local delicacies.
Anguilla is not a budget holiday destination but with its world-class hotels and luxurious resorts, it attracts sun-seekers and beach lovers from all around the world.
