The northernmost island in the Leeward chain, Anguilla is just a 20-minute ferry ride from its neighbour to the south, St Martin/Maarten and 45 minutes from St Barths. This small island is only about 17 miles long and 3 miles wide at its widest point.
Anguilla has over 30 white sand beaches, including some of the best in the world, which are still somewhat surprisingly uncrowded. As well as the beaches, many visitors come to Anguilla for the food. There is the most incredible variety of beach restaurants, from shacks to bistros to 5-star luxury.
Anguilla is casual and easygoing, a unique blend of high style and low-key elegance. In Anguilla, you can still enjoy the best of the good life at a slow and casual island tempo. It is an ideal island to escape from the stresses and strains of modern life, and for some, the privacy offered enables them to escape the glare of publicity to which they are normally subjected. The choice of accommodation ranges from intimate boutique hotels to luxury resorts, with every taste taken care of.
