THIS IS ANGUILLA
Understated and unspoiled, Anguilla offers laid-back elegance and complete privacy on deserted stretches of powder-soft white sand. A British protectorate, the island is a mere 16 miles long and three miles wide, with 33 beach hideaways carved into captivating coral coves.
Anguilla's unusual reef marine system was created when seven freighters were purposely sunk to form manmade reefs. Because of the very shallow sites (all are between 35 and 110 feet deep) and near lack of underwater currents, it is a very safe place to dive and an ideal spot to see a variety of colorful underwater wildlife.
Popular activities on Anguilla include visiting numerous small art exhibits & galleries for a taste of local and
international culture, exploring exclusive small cays
for snorkeling, swimming and picnicking, renting boats on most beaches
for racing (Anguilla's national sport), fishing, or a trip to St. Barth or
St. Maarten. Wade into a
whole new world while diving near Anguilla's unique artificial reef -- Anguilla is a wonderful place for a beginner diver.
Visitors can fly directly into Anguilla's Wallblake Airport via private plane, or into St. Maarten via commercial airlines. Arrive in Anguilla from Antigua in 45 minutes or from San Juan in one hour. Guests can take a private 20 minute boat charter from St. Maarten (adjacent to the St. Maarten airport) into Blowing Point on Anguilla.
