All About Anguilla

Anguilla is a British Overseas Territory in the Eastern Caribbean. It is one of the most northerly of the Leeward Islands situated at 63º East, 18.5º North lying about 10 miles north of St. Martin/Maarten and 200 miles east of Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands. The territory consists of the main island of Anguilla itself, approximately 26 km (16 mi) long by 5 km (3.1 mi) wide at its widest point, together with a number of much smaller islands and cays with no permanent population. The island’s capital is The Valley. Anguilla is flat, low lying and comprised of coral and limestone, covered mostly with rock, sparse scrub oak, few trees and some salt ponds. .

Anguilla enjoys warm and sunny days and star-filled nights, with an average temperature of 80ºF and gentle trade wind breezes year round. Rains typically fall in September and October, but usually not all day; and February through March is the dry season.

Water temperatures range between 70ºF and 80ºF, perfect for swimming. Most beaches are placid and calm with gentle shoals; occasionally, the Atlantic side of the island can produce some surf. This generally happens in the winter months when swells move off the East Coast of the United States. Surfers can’t be guaranteed waves, but wind and kite surfers find Anguilla to be heaven.
