A warm and welcoming island destination tucked away in the northern Caribbean. Embraced by unrivaled white beaches and breathtaking turquoise seas, Anguilla is casual and easy, a unique blend of high style and low-key elegance, and the best of the good life set to a slow and casual island tempo.  Anguilla is an experience that captivates our visitors and creates friendships and memories that last a lifetime. Casinos are illegal in Anguilla, but if gambling is a part of your vacation to-do list, you can take a ferry to St. Maarten for a night of slots and live game tables. In spite of Anguillas small size, it boasts more than 30 spectacular beaches. All beaches are open to the public, though some of them can only be accessed by walking through hotels. The most popular beaches can get crowded, but youll find the majority to be havens of tranquility. Bars and restaurants skirt some of them, so beach-goers can stroll right from lounge chair to dining chair. The west side is where youll find the islands best beaches, lined by the most expensive resorts. Still, you really cant go wrong anywhere on Anguilla. Whether youre looking for swimming, windsurfing, a quiet retreat, or a wild shore to explore, you can find a suitable beach on any part of the island. With peaceful waves, many beaches are good for swimming. However, strong currents and dangerous undertows make a few areas too treacherous for a dip in the water. This is especially true near Anguillas northernmost tip, though rough spots are scattered here and there around the island. But theyre still excellent places for picnicking, hiking, or watching the boats go by. Anguillas small national park features a cave with a natural spring, and a few other small caves and holes dot the islands landscape. In a hole near the shore, the sea crashing up from the bottom creates a dramatic show. And a few beaches display striking stone formations, built by the waves as large pieces of coral wash ashore. To really get in touch with your inner Robinson Crusoe, take a day trip to explore one of the nearby uninhabited islands. Number of cuisines are represented on the island, and many restaurants blend international cuisines with Caribbean flavors to produce a delectable assortment of eclectic dishes. Locally caught seafood specialties include lobster, conch, and grouper. Conch can be prepared using Creole influenced spices and sauces, and lobster is often prepared with spices and herbs or used to make a spicy bisque. Snapper is another popular fish that is prepared in a number of ways. Shredded salt fish served with peppers and onions is a popular breakfast dish. The lushly adorned landscapes, the clean sandy beaches, and the invigorating blue waters make traveling to Anguilla an appealing option throughout the year. However, frigid temperatures in other areas of the world seems to spur travelers to visit the island during the popular Caribbean tourist season of mid-December to mid-April   More less
