If you are looking for romance, luxury and stunning scenery, Anguilla was made for you. Let the sunset on Anguilla’s stretches of white sand beaches become the backdrop for your one-of-a-kind wedding and enjoy an evening reception with your feet dancing in the white sand.
Anguilla has many fun activities, from snorkeling and kayaking to shopping and sunbathing. In the evenings, enjoy live entertainment or stop by the local bars and clubs for dinner, drinks, and dancing.
Shoal Bay East
With radiant white sand, Shoal Bay East is one of the best beaches in the Caribbean. Ideal for swimming and snorkeling, the waters offer some of Anguilla’s most beautiful coral gardens, full of hundreds of tiny fish, and the sand is soft and as white as snow.
Anguilla’s Many Dive Sites
Divers will be pleased to know that a double reef system wreaths Anguilla, with a large variety of corals. The island is also known for its wrecks, including intentionally sunken ships that become thriving artificial reefs.
Seven marine parks surround the island: Dog Island, Prickly Pear, Seal Island Reef System, Little Bay, Sandy Island, Shoal Bay Harbor Reef System, and Stoney Bay Marine Park. Turtles, stingrays, and garden eels inhabit many of the dive sites, and at Scrub Island, you can regularly see sharks and barracuda.
Foundation Cavern National Park
Close to Shoal Bay, the Fountain Cavern is Anguilla’s top archaeological site. This natural and cultural wonder is home to two freshwater pools and many Amerindian petroglyphs, which lie 15 meters below ground in a cave. The most significant of these is a tall stalagmite carved in the shape of “Jocahu,” the supreme God of the Taino Indians.
The Fountain Cavern is thought to have been a major regional worship site and a place of pilgrimage for Amerindians.
