Anguilla was first settled roughly 4,000 years ago by Indigenous tribes who migrated from South America. In 1650, English settlers arrived and colonized the island gem. The French temporarily took over in 1666. And today Anguilla sits as a British overseas territory, offering the refined panache of the English with the decidedly relaxed attitude of the Caribbean isles.
Anguilla is everything you need from a Caribbean island – beautiful white sand beaches, turquoise waters, scenic bays, gentle breezes, and palm trees as far as the eye can see. It’s the best of the good life set to a slow island tempo; an experience that captivates visitors and creates friendships and memories that last a lifetime.
Adopt a slower pace of life. Adjust to island time. Dive through scenic coral reefs. Unwind with a massage on the beach. Turn up the adrenaline with kitesurfing and paddle boarding adventures on crystal clear seas. Grab some local flavour and satisfy your hunger with a tasty bite from a roadside grill. Discover master artisans. Fall in love with an original work of art. Be sure to save some energy because Anguilla’s nightlife (and rum punch) must be experienced to be believed.
