Just north of the island of St. Martin is the small, quiet island of Anguilla. Anguilla is a tiny island with a big heart. Smiling comes naturally to Anguillians – there are only 12,000, but they have smiles big enough to welcome their many visitors to an island renowned for its relaxed pace of life.
It’s most famous for its beaches – and deservedly so. Anguilla’s 35-mile (68 km) coastline has 33, many of them among the best in the Caribbean. Their soft white sands slope into shallow blue waters as calm, soothing and warm as the islanders’ gracious welcome and easy-going attitude.
