ANGUILLA
Click for Anguilla, Anguilla Forecast


35 square miles surrounded by turquoise waters and 33 uncrowded white sand beaches, Anguilla is truly a tropical paradise. From watersports to hiking, shopping to dining, Anguilla has something for every taste.

How is the diving in Anguilla? Unlike the pinnacles of neighboring Saba or the deep walls of St. Croix, Anguilla's natural diving is mostly shallow dives offshore or on fringing coral reefs. While there are some walls, caves, etc.., the real draw to Anguilla is wreck diving.

Five excellent wrecks are currently being dived and three more soon will be. El Buen Consejo is scheduled to be a marine park and historical site under the supervision of marine archaeologists.

Anguilla's turquoise waters boast seven marine parks: Dog Island, Prickley Pear, Seal Island Reef System, Little Bay, Sandy Island, Shoal Bay Harbour Reef System and Stoney Bay Marine Park.

You would be unlucky to spend a week diving in Anguilla and not see a turtle or two. The sand that surrounds the dive sites is where you will see stingrays and garden eels, and there is a good chance of spotting conch. If you have a penchant for sharks, Scrub Island at the eastern end of Anguilla will virtually guarantee you a sighting. The wrecks attract barracuda, both schools of small barracuda and solitary grandfather sized specimens.
