There are no private beaches in Anguilla. All of Anguilla’s 33 beaches are public, uncrowded and unspoiled. Stunningly white, powder soft sands meet gentle seas of pristine waters colored in vibrant and varied hues of turquoise.
If Anguilla’s beaches are the most enviable feature of the island, then its world-class restaurants come in a close second. The artistry of the chefs, both Anguillian and from abroad, is unmatched anywhere in the Caribbean.
