One of the many charming aspects of the island is the warm, welcoming and friendly attitude of the people. Genuinely gentle and gracious, Anguillians take great pride in their island, and pleasure in sharing it with visitors from around the world.

With the atmosphere of a sleepy backwater, this flat coral retreat, lying northernmost in the British Leeward Islands, nonetheless attracts a sophisticated and glamorous clientele.

Perhaps they seek the breath-taking beaches, quiet coves and extensive selection of restaurants. Doubtless they enjoy the unique character of the Mediterranean/Moroccan-style hotels.

Most are enticed by the exclusivity of this haven. Anguilla’s name, meaning ‘eel’, is an apt description for an island measuring 16 miles long by just three across, but it belies the outstanding beauty and the warmest of welcomes that are tucked away on this, the Caribbean’s best kept secret.
