THE DESTINATION

Anguilla should not have that many reasons to be so fabulous. An area close to St. Maarten, the island is a tiny point on the radar, with only six traffic lights. It does not have a fancy atmosphere for those who are looking for something refined. Yet, it hosts some of the coolest Caribbean resorts, restaurants that provide a true gastronomic experience and breathtaking beaches. Anguilla has an interesting villa portfolio and is like a magnet to celebrities such as Kevin Bacon and Jimmy Buffet.

HISTORY

Anguilla’s history is full of come and goes. The British colonized it in 1650, the French took it 16 years later and gave it back to the United Kingdom in 1667. The island survived for a long time from the export of raw material and joined St. Kitts and Nevis in 1958.

ISLAND IN...

…September and October because most of the establishments will be closed. That is when the island’s residents take some time off. However, the newly opened Zemi Beach hotel is so busy that it will be available then.

HOW MANY DAYS
SHOULD I SAY IN
THE ISLAND?

Anguilla is a place to relax. Do not expect many activities, shopping and tours. You will spend most of the time in your hotel or villa, enjoying the beach and the pool. When you leave, explore the paradisiacal beaches and discover the delicious local gastronomy, full of live music. If the trip married is to another destination, three days are enough to feel the island’s vibe. However, it is precisely on the third day that you finally get in the Anguillan vibe and your mind fly away. This is the reason why we recommend between five and seven days to “rest and live inside the dream”, as described by various locals. Try renting a villa to call yours and spend two weeks. You will be addicted to the island’s blue life.

AVAREGE
SPENT
PERDAY

Consider around US$ 400 a day per couple - this value includes a car, lunch in a restaurant/beach bar and drinks at the end of the day and at dinner. Add this value to your hotel or villa’s daily rate. In YOUR TRIP, we offer a range of interesting options.

HOW TO ARRIVE BY PRIVATE PLANE

For your convenience, the island offers at the local Anguilla’s Clayton J. Lloyd International airport an ample private jets parking lot.
