Flights to Anguilla | Compare Low-Cost Fares at Skyscanner

A small island nation in the Caribbean Sea, Anguilla is as charming as it could get. It magically weaves something old and something new into the mix. Something old, for you can seek respite in one of its villas and enjoy the solitary confinement and something new, if you want to grab a bottle of beer while enjoying to the beat of reggae music. Travellers who managed to land into the shores of this country may be torn of their ideal outlook of Anguilla and its actual reality, with its apparent underrated status despite its overhyped buzz with the lack of developments such as casinos and nightclubs in contrast to its neighbouring islands. No matter, local living here is plain and simple. Tourist attractions may not be ostentatious, but simple is grand. And in Anguilla, you’ll experience just that.

You will find the most interesting building in The Valley, which is the Wallblake House. The house was built in 1787 and is the only remaining plantation house on the island. Just standing outside this architectural wonder will make you have an insight of Caribbean history. Do check out the interiors of the nearby St. Gerard’s Church, which is especially unique for incorporating a decorative stone front design, with open-air side walls and a ceiling shaped comparable to that of a hull of a ship. Also, if you want to have a heritage tour, you can also drop by the National Trust of Anguilla and sign up for one of its free heritage tours. This is a good way to get to know the island better. It is advisable if you book your tour a day in advance, and expect to be prepared for the tour by eight o’clock in the morning at a determined departure place.

You can also take a dip in the beach. After all, you are in a Caribbean country. Go visit the Shoal Bay East, which should be treated as a separate entity with the Shoal Bay West. Miraculously, you will find the beach blight-free. Despite the existence of a number of small resorts and villas, you’ll find the beach a sweet escape from the frenzied lifestyle, even if it is peak season. Here, you can also do snorkelling if you feel like it. However, to experience the best diving site in Anguilla, you have to head to the Prickly Pear Cays. You can feast your eyes on the nurse sharks and barracudas swimming through rock formations, not far from several sunken shipwrecks.

How to get around within Anguilla

To reach most sites in The Valley, you can opt to ride the taxi instead. Taxis here in Anguilla are unmetered. Some taxi drivers also offer island tours that last for several hours. If you want to reach other islands such as Blowing Point, you can opt to ride a ferry.
