Romantic Guide to Anguilla

Anguilla Activities and Attractions

The best way for couples to explore the island is by navigating in a jeep, car or bicycle. Driving is on the left-hand side of the road but with a speed limit set at thirty miles per hour, or slower, and with only one main road, you won't need a GPS to find your way and the slow pace is a world away from the nine-to-five at home.

Anguilla is world-famous for the thirty-three beaches that surround the sandy island. Ideal for snorkeling or swimming in the crystal clear water, each beach has its own personality and cast of regulars who keep it lively. Rendezvous Bay or Shoal Bay East invite with a mile of sandy splendor and a variety of water sports like wind surfing, sailing and kayaking while Savannah Bay is for boogie boarders and body surfers. Pocket beaches include Limestone Bay, revered for snorkeling and reef-ringed Prickly Pear Cays.

Anguilla has six marine parks and six grand dive wrecks, plus a huge array of coral formations, walls ridges, canyons and tunnels that will thrill novice and experienced divers alike. The creation of Stoney Bay Marine Park has ensured that artifacts dating back to the 18th century will be preserved for all water babies to enjoy. The wreck of the Spanish galleon, El Buen Consejo with its cannons, anchors and bronze medals embedded in the coral is the island's most impressive underwater treasure.

Built in 1787, Wallblake House is the only surviving plantation house on the island. This National Trust property is one of only a few remaining plantation houses in the Caribbean where the entire complex including the kitchen, stables and workers' quarters has remained unaltered.

Designed by Greg Norman and managed by Cap Juluca, Temenos is a 7,063-yard championship golf course with dramatic elevation changes and a spectacular vista of St. Maarten at the 390-yard starting hole. Sand dunes and a saltwater pond frame the perilous drive on the 440-yard 16th hole that ends with an elevated green that is surrounded by water.
