As mentioned, Anguillans are linked with their traditional livelihood of fishing. Due to the location being in the Caribbean Sea it is no wonder the community has not strayed from the boat-building industry. Boat racing is a national pastime and many of the Caribbean islands have strong passion for such water sports.

Location and Background

Anguilla is one of the most northerly of the Leeward Islands. The island is part of the British Overseas Territory in the Eastern Caribbean. It is very flat and long, which is where the etymology of Anguilla’s name is derived (French word Anguille, meaning ‘eel’). Overall, Anguilla is 26 km in length and 6 km in width.

Anguilla is situated in the British West Indies and is about 160km North West of Antigua,  19 km north of St Martin, 240 km east of Puerto Rico and 100 km Northwest of St Kitts. There is one main road that travels from one end of the island to the other, from the East End to West End. The capital is The Valley and is where you will find the administrative center of the island. The highest peak on island is recorded to be 73m at Crocus Hill which is west of the Valley.

The location of the island means it enjoys the gentle and mild waters of the Caribbean Sea, while also bordering the Atlantic Ocean towards the East.

Climate

The climate here is tropical with the average temperature 80°F/28 °C, with trade winds providing a constant warm breeze. Hurricane season runs from September to November. The climate remains pleasant however the island receives a more rainfall during these months.

The peak season which runs from December to April, is the most popular time to travel due to the infrequent rainfall, average high temperatures, and lush surroundings (as a result of the Hurricane season rainfall). As the climate becomes more humid between May – August the island enters summer/low season. You will begin to see more rainfall as it gets closer to the hurricane season once more.

Note: When spending time on Anguilla’s stunning beaches and in the Sea, it is good to note that since the island has many protected reefs, it is common courtesy to use eco-friendly sunscreen. Many sunscreen brands have chemicals that are toxic to some fish and coral larvae as well as making the coral reef vulnerable to bleaching. Protect yourself and the islands natural harmony by using coral friendly/ecofriendly sunscreen.

Our villa specialists have travelled to the island and experienced some of the best beach shacks on island. From the popular shores of Meads Bay to the secluded Savannah Beach. Sandy Ground offers plenty of fun bars and restaurants including the famous Elvis’s Bar – an old boat converted into a cool beach bar. Best known for its delicious rum punches, fruity cocktails and beers, this beach bar is not to be missed. Blanchard’s Restaurant is another Beach Shack and the food here offers a variety to choose from, including salads, soup, sandwiches, fries, burgers, tacos, ice cream, shakes, desserts and smoothies. If you are looking for something with more seafood and BBQ goodness, then stroll on down to ‘Sunshine shack’. This BBQ shack serves the most tender dishes which are mainly whole lobsters, fish, chicken or ribs.

For a more local and ‘off the beaten track’ beach shack, then make your way along the south eastern end of Anguilla where one of the main attractions of this underdeveloped coastline is hidden. Junks Hole and Savannah Bay would be two of the more secluded beaches on island. Here you will find Nat’s Palm Grove restaurant, which serves food that is ‘par excellence’. Note: Try the Rum Punch, it is delicious!

If you prefer fine dining, then Anguilla also offers its fair share of excellent restaurants to choose from. Perched along the coast and inland amongst the tall swaying palm trees, the island provides a high standard of sophisticated cuisine. One such place is the well-known Hibernia Restaurant Art Gallery. This cottage restaurant is in the East End of Anguilla and is nestled in amongst Zen gardens. The ocean views are stunning and overall, the atmosphere is serene. Enjoy the Balinese styled surroundings and small intimate setting. The food here is inspired by the many mouth-watering tastes of Asia, fused with French cuisine.

Another great find is none other than Ember. This incredible local restaurant was opened in 2018 by Chef Marc Alvarez using a simple approach to create sensational food. The technique is to cook food using live fire. Both local and seasonal products are used in Chef Marcs delicious wood fired cuisine which is tinged in smooth smokey flavors. The restaurant is located in The Valley and overlooks the sea.

If you are searching for some five-star exotic flavors, then our concierge service can arrange a meal at restaurant Veya.

The restaurant has a cocktail bar on the first level called Meze, which is perfect for a drink before dinner. Making your way upstairs, the tables are arranged along a wraparound porch.
