Take in the beautiful beaches
Anguilla truly has some of the most gorgeous and soft white sand in the Caribbean.

There’s a surprising variety of sporting and active options if you’re getting restless from all that sunbathing. Choose to go horse-riding at the Seaside Stables or the Cliffside Stables with either walks along the sandy beach or into the ocean. Pony rides are also available for children.
If you’re more in the mood for watersports, you can enjoy some unforgettable snorkelling experiences here. Or back on dry land visit Cap Juluca golf course for a few rounds.
Anguilla is home to a surprising diversity of cultural attractions – the island has a rich heritage and this comes out in the relaxed art galleries dotted around. There’s also a huge range of festivals running at different times throughout the year.
The nautically-themed Festival Del Mar runs around Easter every year and one of the highlights is the Deep Sea Fishing Tournament where local fishermen attempt to catch the largest fish they can. If you’re travelling in Anguilla around this time it really should not be missed.
There’s also the annual three-day Anguilla Yacht Regatta that runs in May, while less experienced sailors can still enjoy trips out on the beautiful Caribbean Sea.
