You know you’d love to go Anguilla for the holidays. We get it! The beautiful, sandy Caribbean beaches, cool blue water and the feeling that all your cares are somewhere far, far away. The real question is not if or when you’re going, but what to do when you get there. Although you may just want to head for the nearest hammock, there are plenty of activities and attractions in Anguilla for you to enjoy. Here are some favorite Anguilla activities and tourist attractions you can try.
Well, this one is obvious, but what you may not realise is that there are 33 beaches to explore in Anguilla, each one with its own unique characteristics, and each one with plenty of fine sand and inviting water for swimming, sailing, snorkeling or just relaxing on the beach and soaking up the sun. You can visit a different beach every day and still have plenty left to discover.
Anguilla has a rich culture, which you can learn about by visiting one of the ancient Amerindian settlements, or exploring one of over a dozen art galleries that litter the island. You can admire unique Caribbean art and even pick up a couple of gifts or souvenirs from your trip. There’s a great Anguilla museum with ancient artifacts to look at, too. Of course, you can’t forget the food and a culinary adventure to sample fresh lobster, langoustine and other delicious seafood.
If you’ve got a spare day, head on out to lunch on Scilly Cay (pronounced “silly key”). You can spend the day as a true castaway, on an island with no electricity and grape leaves for plate liners for your meal. It’s an experience you’ll never forget.
