7 Day Anguillan


*A quick vacation may be just what we need to clear our mind, body & soul from all the disturbance around us.*   Situated between the Caribbean Sea and the Atlantic Ocean, ANGUILLA is the most northerly of the Leeward Islands in the Lesser Antilles. Not a large island by any means, Anguilla has a total area of 35 square miles, which is about half the size of Washington, D.C. The island’s coastline runs about 37.9 miles, and features numerous bays and 33 beaches. Further inland, Anguilla is characterized by flat, dry land, coral, and limestone bluffs. Exclusive and chic are two words often used to describe this island due to high end resorts, award-winning restaurants, and pristine beaches that attract those who expect nothing but the best. Most of the 13,254 Anguillans are of African descent. Many Europeans, predominantly of Irish descent, also live on the island. Anguilla is currently under the British government.

Tourists who hope to travel by air will be required to layover on another island. The most popular choices are San Juan, Puerto Rico and St Maarten, though connections are sometimes also available from St. Kitts, Antigua, or St. Thomas. Another option is flying into Sint Maarten and hopping on a 25 minute Ferry ride to Anguilla. Centrally located on the map, The Valley is one of the most popular places to stay on the island. It is the hub of all government activity, and offers a variety of restaurants, art and nightlife.

Anguilla has a number of annual festivals and holidays, most of which celebrate important historical events that have helped to shape the island’s culture. The most spectacular cultural celebration on the island is the annual Summer Festival. This event is held in August and begins on a Monday with an early-morning jam called the J’Ouvert Mornin. This festival celebrates the emancipation of African slaves and includes dancing, parades, fairs, and other colorful events. During this and other festivals, the days consist of picnics on the beach as well as sailboat racing, which is Anguilla’s national sport.

Anguilla provides visitors with world-class food, beaches, and service in a setting that can only be described as paradise. The exclusivity that comes from being on an island, that is not easy to get to – is the perfect destination for those who demand nothing but the best – and are willing to pay for it. Become a 7 day Anguillan and celebrate You. Why go to Anguilla? Because you’re worth every penny.
