Anguilla-the-tiny offers a huge range of adventures. Snorkeling and diving are good everywhere and sunken ships have attracted schools of colorful fish. Nearby islands – Prickly Pear, Scilly Cay and Sandy – are destinations for snorkeling, water skiing, kite surfing, picnics, beach volleyball, shell collecting and catamaran sailing. Little Bay Harbor is a blue lagoon accessible only by boat, with caves to explore, a beach to stroll and rocks to jump from.

Anguilla is famous for its many and varied restaurants: Blanchard’s, both beach shack and fine-dining version, is the granddaddy of dining destinations, and the staff is charming – you can even take home the cookbook. Picante is an innovative Caribbean-Mexican hybrid near the resort. Mango is a must for a change of perspective and fresh variations. Jacala on Meads Bay Beach serves up French cuisine so good that reservations are a must. Still hungry? Veya and Dolce Vita near Sandy Ground offer even more culinary adventures.
Locals amble to their own drummer on Anguilla; it’s a small place and a close-knit family. You could be on a first-name basis with local bar owners like Elvis, and you might become a reggae regular at Bankie Banks’ club and his renowned Moonsplash festival. At the Pumphouse on Sandy Ground, you can listen to live music with your feet in the sand. Anguilla is truly the Caribbean with its soul intact.
