Welcome to Anguilla
White sand beaches. Sea-grape trees. Coconut palms. Endless sun and sea. If you’re seeking a picture-perfect Caribbean paradise, then you won’t be disappointed here. Once you get on island time, you’ll find a lot to do and explore—at your own leisurely pace, that is.
What to Do in Anguilla
Shoal Bay East
If it’s a calm atmosphere and clear waters you seek, Shoal Bay East is everything a Caribbean traveler could ask. Even in the height of high season, the setting is laid-back and quiet. This marvelous spot is a 2-mile stretch of shells and sand that offer unmatched beach time and stellar snorkeling.
Bankie Banx's Dune PreserveEven if you’ve never heard of local reggae star Bankie Banx, a visit to this special spot is worth your time! Here, Banx transformed shipwrecked boats, old coconut trees, and driftwood into every island-goer’s dream: a kind of giant tree house on the beach where you can eat, drink, and chill out. There’s regular live music and a unique atmosphere that will ensure you never, ever want to leave.
Take a quick boat ride (maybe longer if you encounter sea life!) to this solar-powered little islet and you’ll find beautiful sands that meet clear, sapphire waters—the definition of getting away from it all. You can fulfill a snorkeling dream and possibly encounter sea turtles amidst the coral. And there’s even an on-site restaurant that serves up sizzling fare for hungry beachgoers (there’s a bar, too, with plenty of cold rum cocktails).
