ANGUILLA

For years, visitors have arrived at this British Overseas Territory looking for that typical Caribbean experience. What they find is more than sunny skies and fruity cocktails. Ah, tranquility. It’s in the smiles of locals that greet you. It’s where the ocean meets the sand. It’s what you feel after a stroll along pristine shores lined by fishing boats with richly painted wooden hulls. Anguilla (pronounced “An-gwilla”) is a country like no other. From Sint Maarten / Saint Martin, it’s easy and affordable to experience the blissful tranquility of Anguilla on a day trip. Sail cats Lambada and Tango depart daily from Aqua Mania Adventures in Simpson Bay. You don’t need to pack much, as these charter boats have everything you need on board.

 

Sail to Anguilla’s Prickly Pear island, where you can snorkel through the outer reefs in crystal-clear water. Don’t miss Anguilla’s most famous beach, Shoal Bay. It’s the perfect spot to spend your day basking in serenity. You can also create vacation memories on an island tour as you soak up the culture and lifestyle of Anguilla. Once you open your senses and absorb the sights and sounds of this British jewel, you will feel a lot more relaxed. It may take some time to let go of your stress, but when you sit back and take in the beauty of this gem, you may not want to head back to the workaday world. So, enjoy one more refreshing cocktail, take a stroll down the sparkling beach and breathe in that fresh ocean air, because once you have experienced “tranquility wrapped in blue,” your life will most certainly never be the same. You can also reach Anguilla via ferry from Marigot (French St. Martin). The ferry departs approximately every 45 minutes, but be sure to confirm in case of scheduling changes.
