Idyllically set in the Eastern Caribbean, the British Overseas Territory of Anguilla is the quintessential Caribbean island destination. It comprises one small main island as well as a scattering of little offshore islets. Featuring over 33 idyllic white-sand beaches lapped by crystal-clear turquoise waters, Anguilla is renowned for its breathtaking natural beauty. Most beaches are fringed by open-air beach bars offering an array of Carribean-style rum punches, sizzling barbecues and reggae beats filtering into the Carribean breeze. Visitors can look forward to snorkelling at the beautiful unspoilt Barnes Bay, swimming and soaking up the sun on one of the many pristine palm-lined beaches, and visiting a variety of world-class restaurants and local food shacks, most of which line the stunning beaches up to the water’s edge.
Anguilla is hot throughout the year, tempered by trade winds in local areas, particularly early in the year. The average rainfall for the year is 89 cm and the hurricane season is from July to November.
