Anguilla is one of the smaller Caribbean islands, but it is full of enough variety in beaches to match the styles of the variety of people that choose Anguilla vacations. There are other sites that many visitors will want to see, such as the old prison at Crocus Hill and the Heritage Museum covering 4000 years of Anguilla’s unique history, but the beaches are truly what makes visitors to the island come back for more. With over 30 beaches, many hotels in Anguilla are situated on private beaches, like the powdery sand of Maundays Bay.
If you’re in the mood for relaxation or family-friendly recreation, Island Harbour beach offers many possibilities. Sit back and watch the fishing boats and tourist yachts sailing in and out or charter a glass-bottom boat to get a glimpse beneath the turquoise waters. Those looking for seclusion, but still desire the safety of people nearby, will want to visit the fine, white sands of Cover Bay, where a lone restaurant provides a taste of the local flavor. Snorkeling is one activity that should not be missed, because marine life is abundant off every rocky beach. One of the most popular places is the coral reef off Shoal Bay, though beginners may want to stick with snorkeling in the shallower waters at the north end of Shoal Bay.
