Headed to the Caribbean?
Here’s 5 Reasons to Go to Anguilla

Anguilla might not be the first island that comes to mind when you think of tropical getaways, but this British overseas territory is a Caribbean gem worth exploring. Lying just east of Puerto Rico, this lesser-known piece of paradise has plenty of offer for singles, couples and families alike.

Read on to discover five reasons you should consider boarding a plane for Anguilla.

Nature and Wildlife

From the red-footed tortoise to green iguanas and Cuban tree frogs, Anguilla has a lot to offer for wildlife-watchers. You can even find five species of bats on the island, including the endangered insular single leaf bat. Would you like a wildlife expert to show you around? Sign up for a guided nature tour of Anguilla’s wetlands.

Sandy Beaches

Beaches are the main attraction in the Caribbean, and Anguilla does not disappoint. This small island is home to 33 of the region’s best beaches. You won’t see any rocks or pebbles here. Anguilla’s beaches are covered in soft sand that’s perfect for soaking up the sun, having a picnic or just taking a nap.

Great for Families

Anguilla is packed with family-friendly adventures like glass bottom boat tours, swimming with dolphins and plenty of snorkeling. These activities are popular, so make your reservations in advance. Are you worried about getting around with young children? It’s easy to find a car rental in Anguilla so you can tote your crew all over the island in a roomy minivan or SUV.

Connectivity

Whether you’re working on vacation, posting your beach pics to Instagram or entertaining the kiddos with YouTube videos, you’ll appreciate Anguilla’s pervasive Wi-Fi network. Nearly every resort offers a free, fast and reliable connection. If you have an international plan, you can also enjoy good mobile coverage on the island.

Street Food

While Anguilla is home to many fancy restaurants, the street food is a bargain that can’t be beat. From deep fried soy chunks and pizza patties to barbecue and Johnny cakes, the island’s unique food stands have something offer for everyone. The creamy corn and lobster chowder from Hungry’s food truck is a must try.

Consider visiting during the low season to beat the crowds. With cooling trade winds and a relaxed atmosphere, summer vacation is an excellent time for families to visit Anguilla. Remember to bring your passport if you’re not a Commonwealth citizen. If you want to learn more before your trip, the Anguilla Tourist Board website is an excellent resource.
