Things To Do In Anguilla

With 33 unspoiled beaches, it's only natural that one of the most popular things to do in Anguilla is simply putting your toes in the sand. You'll find powdery white sand beaches contrasting with impossibly blue water. All of the beaches on the island are public (and relatively uncrowded), making them even more inviting. The quiet Rendezvous Bay is a beach just begging for a long walk along the water, while Shoal Bay is dotted with fun bars (and it's also where you can find parasailing tours). To catch an amazing sunset, head to Crocus Bay, where the coral cliffs light up beautifully. Then visit Meads Bay for fine dining set the music of waves rolling ashore. No matter what type of beach vacation you've been daydreaming of, Anguilla can deliver.

For those who wish for a little more adventure, there are multiple activities in Anguilla that will pique your interest. Thanks to its calm waters, Anguilla is perfect for snorkeling. Don a mask and you'll be able to see a variety of tropical fish and turtles. Our favorite beaches for snorkeling are Crocus Bay, Junk's Hole and Little Bay. To explore a little farther underwater, go scuba diving. Anguilla has seven marine parks, including Stoney Bay Marine Park, which was the island's first underwater heritage site. It features a shipwreck from 1772 that is now home to an amazing array of marine life.
