Just north of the island of St. Martin lies the small Carribean island of Anguilla. A quiet island, it has survived the vast commercialization that most of the larger Carribean islands possess.
Only 35 square miles with a population of less than 10,000, Anguilla offers some of the worlds finest accomodations in both resorts and villas. Anguilla's beaches are world reknown and second to none. This island offers a vast selection of international dining experiences and plenty of outdoor activities.
Anguilla is the most northerly of the Leeward Islands in the Eastern Caribbean (Latitude - 18o N, Longitude - 80o. The average temperature is about 80o. Its monetary system is based on the Eastern Caribbean Dollar (EC) but US currency is accepted throughout the island.
Anguilla, the most northerly of the Leeward Islands, is located at latitude 18°N and longitude 63°W. It is bounded by the Caribbean Sea and the Atlantic Ocean and is 16 miles long and three miles across at its widest point.
Anguilla is a British Dependent Territory with a two-party, Parliamentary system of government. The island is governed by an Executive Council, which is comprised of the Governor (who is appointed by The Queen), the Deputy Governor, the Chief minister, three other elected Ministers, the Attorney General and Secretary to the Executive Council.
The island enjoys low humidity, refreshing trade winds and a mean monthly temperature of 80° F. The island is low-lying and ringed with twelve miles of spectacular, white sand, coral beaches, which make up thirty-three beaches and coves. Surrounding the island is a reef system and seven islets and cays, which is excellent for diving and snorkeling. The waters are clear and range in color from blue to aquamarine.
The island is rich in pre-Columbian history. Archaeologists believe there was a large population of peace-loving Arawak indians living on Anguilla when the Europeans first arrived. The Arawaks called the island Malliouhana.
Barnes Bay - Situated at West End, at this gorgeous beach there is a feeling of adventure just climbing down the crag from the luxurious Coccoloba Hotel to the powdery, white sand below once down. With your back to the wall, you will want to rush forward clothes and all, to instantly enjoy the sparkling sea. At the head of the beach, the snorkeling is superb. Myriads among the coral. Quite often, swarms of near-transparent fries, fleeing from sharp-eyed benita and cavally, fly in flight in perfect unison on the surface in the in-shore. The sea, often smooth, is sometimes challenging. Windsurfers love the gentle breezes, which bathe the shoreline ever so salubriously, as they ride the wavelets. As much fun in the sea and sun, you can always relax in the shade of the chalky hillside or under a beach umbrella. Down from Coccoloba Hotel. there's Mango's, a seaside grill that has made quite a name for itself in a very short time.
Little Bay - Tranquil... Secluded... Stunning... Unique. Fish nusery. Accessible mainly by boat--day or sunset cruises. Great for snorkelling, SCUBA-diving, bird-watching, picknicking, and weddings. A "must while in Anguilla".
Rendezvous Bay - This historically famous beach has been the invading point of French soldiers from St. Martin in days gone by before close friendship ties were established between the two islands. This mile and a half long half-moon white ribbon of beach separates the calm, blue Caribbean from the still undeveloped countryside. Rendezvous Bay appeals to all types of fun-seekers. At the top is the Rendezvous Bay Hotel Restaurant with the Pineapple Beach Club in the middle. At the western end, the newly opened Casablanca Resort is already renowned for its excellent cuisine and architectural beauty.
Sandy Ground - This half moon beach with its tranquil, clear blue sea is the home to yachts and other pleasure craft which shelter in land-locked comfort. Restaurants, all providing the finest in food and drink in very attractive and comfortable surroundings, line the beach. Just feet away, on the other side of the white ribbon of sparkling sand, the oil-calm sea is alive with watersport activities. While ideal for wind surfing and water-skiing, the snorkeling is unfortunately limited. However, there is no limit to the amount of sun-bathing that can be done for it is on this beach that the sun goes down in all its glory!
Shoal Bay - Truly spectacular. But this 2-mile L-shape beach of talcum-powder-soft white sand is definately worth a visit. There are beach chairs, umbrellas, a backdrop of sea-grape and coconut trees, and for seafood and tropical drinks there's Trader Vic's, Uncle Ernie, and the Round Rock. Souvenir shops for T-shirts, suntan lotion, and the like abound. There's good snorkeling in the offshore coral reefs, and the watersports center here can arrange diving, sailing, and fishing trips.
