Anguilla Things to Do

When they are open the offer the following services:• Bulk Mail• Direct Mail• EMS (Express Mail Service)• EZone (Express Delivery Air)• Floral Delivery• Home...

  • Kayaking

    Last weekend my wife and I went kayaking. We have been meaning to do it for quite some time. We decided to go and do something because it was a Saturday afternoon and we needed to not fall asleep on such a nice afternoon. We drove to Crocus Bay and got there around 4.30pm.So we went to Da'vida's restaurant, which sits along side the beach, and...

  • relax

    Isn't that why people come here? Just relax, stare at the sea, read a book, or lay there doing nothing at all.

    more
  • chairs and umbrella's

    On most beaches, you can rent two chairs and an umbrella for about $10 US. Do it. The suncan wear you out quick, so it's good to have some protection.

    more
  • Early mornings on the beach

    At sunrise or early in the morning run 1 - 2 miles from one end of the beach to another (Rendezvous bay where I stayed is pretty long), do some yoga for about 30 minutes and then run back, just in time for breakfast:)...for the rest of the day: relax on the beach, go shell searching, explore sea life in the shallow rocks

  • Shoal Bay, Anguilla - a must see...

    We only had a day trip to Shoal Bay and all we did was enjoy this phenomenal beach. The water is crystal clear and warm as if you were in the tub. This beach is a must see if you are traveling in the Caribbean.We took the ferry from St Martin (Marigot) to Anguilla. Cost was $30 per person. We then took a taxi directly to Shoal Bay ($16 return) as...

  • Birding

    With relatively few landbirds to be found, Anguilla isn’t exactly a birder’s paradise. The island is home to just three of the species endemic to the Caribbean – Green-throated Carib, Antillean Crested Hummingbird, and Lesser Antillean Bullfinch – and it takes some effort to find anything other than Brown Pelican, Magnificent Frigatebird, and Royal...

    more
  • Maundays Bay Beach

    Maundays Bay Beach is home to the famous five-star Cap Juluca Resort. It is another of Anguilla’s outstanding beaches. Considerably smaller than the beaches at Shoal Bay East, Rendezvous Bay, and Meads Bay, the calm waters make this a good spot for families.

    more
  • Crocus Bay Beach

    Like the beach at Sandy Ground, the beach at Crocus Bay is not on a par with Anguilla’s best and is more popular with locals than it is tourists. Just a five-minute walk from the edge of The Valley, this is a good spot to escape other tourists and catch a sunset.

    more
  • Sandy Ground

    Sandy Ground is probably as close to a travelers’ hub as there is on Anguilla. Several bars and restaurants line the beach and there are several nearby guest houses. The beach here doesn’t compare to Shoal Bay East, Rendezvous Bay, Meads Bay or some of Anguilla’s other top beaches, but it is extremely popular with local children. This is a great...

    more
  • Meads Bay Beach

    Another of Anguilla's finest beaches can be found at Meads Bay. This is the high rent district, with lots of posh resorts and restaurants to be found. The beach itself is just a notch below Shoal Bay East and Rendezvous Bay.

    more
  • Rendezvous Bay Beach

    With St. Martin serving as a backdrop, it’s hard to find fault with the beach at Rendezvous Bay. Featuring the same flour-soft, blinding white sand and turquoise waters as the beach at Shoal Bay East, it’s not surprising some locals and tourists actually prefer Rendezvous Bay’s beach over its more famous neighbor.

    more
  • Shoal Bay East Snorkeling

    In addition to an exquisite beach, Shoal Bay East also has some excellent snorkeling just offshore. Visibility is excellent, the coral is in good shape, and there is both great diversity and good numbers of fish. Hawksbill Turtles also are a possibility. And, with the exception of these marine critters, there’s a decent chance you will have the...

    more
  • Shoal Bay East Beach

    Superlatives regarding the beach at Shoal Bay East are well documented elsewhere. Suffice it to say, they are all accurate. The blinding white sand feels not like sugar but like flour between your toes, and the turquoise water is the perfect temperature, neither too warm nor too cold. With only minimal tourist development along the beach, this is...

    more
  • Pyrat Rum

    I like that this small of an island has their own rum distillery. Unfortunately we were in that area on a holiday, so no tastings for us. But the rum is superb (they even sell it in PA, the most conservative state for alcohol). You can visit the factory, we called ahead, but they tend to change when they are available.

    more
  • Boat Race!

    Commemorates the beginning of the Anguillian Revolution which took place on May 30th, 1967. Anguilla Day includes a boat race around the island. There was a lot of confusion for us as to what day it was, but we happened to still be on the island for it (Happy!). We walked out of Ripples on Sandy Ground and I say sailboats in the distance. It was...

    more
  • Hydroponic Farm

    One of the most interesting parts of this little island! The Cuisinart Resort (where we of course stayed) has a hydroponic farm. For an island that doesn't receive much rainfall and depends on St. Martin for supplies, this is an oddity. The produce was wonderful and the Farm tour with Dr. Howard Resh was extremely interesting.

    more
  • Swim with the Dolphins

    This was a unique way to treat our wedding guests. We went to Dolphin Fantaseas and had an hour session. They were very strict about how you handled the dolphins. Most of them had developmental disabilities, some were born in captivity, interesting experience. They encourage to interact. My one friend had to hold the fish bag for a few minutes and...

    more
  • Get Married!

    Seriously, most of the tourism here is either honeymoons or weddings + honeymoons. You couldn't pick a more beautiful setting. Most resorts (such as ours) have a wedding planner on staff to help you out, and all the other services you would need for a wedding are on the island as well (Florists, photographer, etc.) There were a number of other...

    more
  • Catamaran

    A catamaran trip is a great way to see more of the island. We arranged ours through our resort, but there are tons of charters on the island. We went for a champagne sunset trip. It was overcast, but it was still amazing.

    more
  • Beach it!

    These beaches are the most beautiful I've ever been too. The sand is like sugar, the water like being in a swimming pool. The waves are calm in most places, but even if they are not, you can park yourself in the shallow water.

    more
  • Things to do on the Water

    We did the catamaran trip on Chocolat and very much enjoyed the snorkeling, the company, the food and drink. We drove to Crocus Bay and bought a ride with Calvin to Little Bay for some wondrous snorkeling. We visited Shoal Bay East, which is lovely, lovely and enjoyed great food at Gwens Reggae Grill.

  • Fishing...of course

    Well if any have read my main page, you would see my comment on hubby and fishing....So of course I had to add this photo. You can fish both on & off shore in Anguilla. Deep Sea fishing go to Sandy Ground and ask for Dean...he took the boys out and as you can see, had a great day of fishing.

  • Sleeping with the Dogs

    Anguilla is really a place to go if you are looking for the definition of a relaxing vacation. It's not for everyone. If you are looking for true R & R...this is the place. I knew I wanted tropical weather & clean white sandy beaches. I also knew I didnt want crazy traffic, loud bars,vendors standing over your beach chair with something to sell,...

    more
  • Shoal Bay and Upper Shoal Bay

    Shoal Bay and Upper Shoal Bay were one of the beaches I kept hearing about before I had arrived in Anguilla. I think it was a bit over-hyped.There is definitely more to do at Shoal Bay when you compare it to Meads Bay. There are bars and resturants right on the beach. The Resturant we ate at was sub-par and I can't remeber its name. Shoal Bay is...

    more
  • Meads Bay.

    Meads Bay was my favorite beach on the whole island. This is one of the more quiet beaches on the island. It was connected to our Hotel (The Malliouhana) so it was easy for us to get to. Our hotel also provided drinks, watersports, and chairs for us.The water at Meads bay is nice and calm with rolling waves (not crashing waves). It would not be an...

  • Day trip to St. Martin

    If you like to shop you can take a ferry to St. Martin from the Blowing Point ferry docks. It's $15 US (including a departure tax) per person. Once you get over there, you'll be imediately bombarded by people trying to rent you a car. Taxi's will be expensive to get to the Dutch side. You can take a bus for $1.5 US. You'll arrive from Anguilla on...

  • Beach Hopping

    Anguilla is renowned for its beaches...Many of them. All are different and all are beautiful. The sand is like silk and the clarity of the water is like that of a perfect diamond. Some have rocky coral edges with black sea urchins lounging in the crevices. Some have calm waters to float your weary soul into bliss. While others have a pounding surf...

  • Jazz Music at Uncle Ernies on Shoal Bay

    Every Sunday afternoon, local Jazz Musicians gather at Uncle Ernies Bar on Shoal Bay, around 4PM, to play relaxing jazz as the sun sets over the sea. A wonderful place to kick-back.

    My suggestion is to take a day trip on a Catamaran. We used 'Chocolat' and it wasfabulous. For $80.00 USD per person (up to 12 people) we went to Prckly Pear andSandy Island and Little Bay. The price also included lunch (awesome!!!) and drinks.Captain Rawlins was very friendly and did his best to put you at ease. He gave us time in each place to go...

  • Best beach and probably if the...

    Best beach and probably if the top 3 best Carribean beaches : Shoal Bay in northern coast of Anguilla. Shoal Bay is what everyone is dreaming about !!!! Long white sand uncrowded beach, with shallow crystal clear water, plenty of underwater life for snorkellers, and some nice bars along the beach. But nothing like 'crowded' and 'noisy'. If you see...

    more
  • Shoal Bay

    Shoal Bay is a long soft white sand beach with clear turquoise water. Bring your snorkel gear because just off the shore are many coral reef with tropical sea life. Bring a hat and some sunscreen because you won't find much shade at the beach.
