Imagine a place along the far reaches of the Caribbean with vanilla-stained sand and warm jade water. There’s sailing, swimming, relaxing and more relaxing.
If you’re thinking about a spot in the Lesser Antilles, you’re on the right track. Check out our great offers for trips to Anguilla and be in paradise by happy hour tomorrow!
How can you resist water that looks like melted turquoise jewellery? You can’t, so why not take part in some maritime activities? Take a boat ride on a traditional sailing charter and learn the ins and outs of this country’s national sport. The skippers will show you the finer points of swinging a jib and easing the sheets—just like Owen Wilson does in Wedding Crashers. Unfortunately, Christopher Walken probably won’t be your captain.
Since you’ll already be on a boat, head on over to the offshore isle of Scilly Cay. Spend the afternoon on this tiny slice of paradise getting kissed by the sun or taking a dip in the 25-degree water. Before heading back to your Anguilla accommodation, you’ve got to try the infamous rum punch that is poured at the beachside pub. Don’t take down too many, though—the stuff is potent!
Holidays to Anguilla will begin at Clayton J. Lloyd International Airport (AXA), very near The Valley, the island’s capital. The only public transport on the island is by taxi so that simplifies things. The taxis can take you all around the island and to any of the hotels in Anguilla.
Sometimes the best getaways are to tiny islands in the middle of the ocean. Having said that, search through Wotif’s great offers for Anguilla hotels and book a stay at one today. You’ll never want to leave.
Hotels in Anguilla start at AU$336 per night. Prices and availability subject to change. Additional terms may apply.
