Anguilla is emerging as the next great island destination. For those in the know, this is no surprise. The island offers visitors 33 beautiful beaches, often only frequented by locals, with each having warm water for swimming and water sports.
The blessed natural gifts don’t stop by the coast. Inland, a rugged landscape means you can embrace nature whether you’re cycling, hiking, or horseback riding through. Whether you’re travelling through the verdant forests or sunbathing by the beach, relaxation is a given in Anguilla.
The climate in Anguilla consistently hovers between 25˚C - 30 ˚C, with minimal rainfall for most of the year. The rainy season falls between August and October.
Restaurants on Anguilla take full advantage of the abundance of marine life off its shores, creating a cuisine centred on fish, crab, and lobster. The gastronomy is typical of the Caribbean, with dishes often involving barbeques and the beach.
In foodie circles, the food truck scene is well regarded. Anguilla was leading the way with this style of street food long before it was adopted in cities around the world, such as Dubai or new York. As a result, fantastic burgers, curries, and callaloo can be found at one of the many trucks dotted around the island.
As Anguilla is a British Overseas Territory, a visa is not required for British nationals who visit for less than 3 months. Upon departure, the government issues a $28 tax per person, which can be paid at the airport.
