Just three miles wide and sixteen miles long, this picture-perfect paradise is simply beautiful. While still pleasingly underdeveloped, Anguilla is home to luxury retreats and some of the world’s finest beaches. There are plenty of natural and manmade wonders too. Snorkel in secluded coves or examine ancient Arawak stone carvings at the Big Spring Heritage Site. There’s also Wallblake House to visit. Built in 1787, it’s the oldest surviving plantation building on the island. Or you could just soak up the laid-back Anguillan atmosphere with a rum punch as you gaze out at the famous Shoal Bay sunset.
