This is one of the Caribbean’s jewels, where you will be completely at home in its tranquil atmosphere, un-spoilt beaches and crystal clear sea. Welcome to the island of Anguilla, which is situated in the British West Indies and is about 150 miles (241km) east of Puerto Rico, and 9 miles (14km) north of St Martin. A British overseas territory, Anguilla is a petite, island with scrubby vegetation and is 16 miles (25km) long and 3 miles (5km) across at its widest point. The main island is surrounded by a collection of low islets and coral cays, all administered from The Valley, the capital of Anguilla.
Although small, Anguilla boasts 33 amazing beaches that are rated the best in the world and most certainly in the Caribbean. Each is special in its own way, from Shoal Bay East with its mile of soft sand and wild Windward Bay to serene Little Harbor or secluded Captain’s Bay, reached only by a narrow gravel track. The beaches, together with a set of stylish villas, resort hotels and delicious cuisine served up in a disproportionately large number of top class restaurants, have made Anguilla a favourite hideaway for celebrities, particularly movie stars, as witnessed by the private jets often parked on the airport runway.
