WOW! The first word that springs to mind as you step onto the sands of one of Anguilla’s beaches. So sumptuously soft, so thick and deep you nearly stumble and so brilliantly white and bright. Where else in the world can you find perfect crescents of icing sugar sand that take your breath way?
Imagine a coral island just sixteen miles by three, its landscape flat and barren. Then add an amazing coastline offering a spread of delicious beaches with dazzling white powder sand, surrounded by electric blue seas. Stretch out on a lounger soaking up the sun, cooling sorbet and chilled towel in hand, courtesy of the beach butler service. Think long, lazy, sun-baked days, delightfully cooled by balmy trade winds.
Step up the tempo and join a yoga or fitness class right on the beach. Head into the water, warm and inviting for all kinds of watersports – scuba-diving, snorkelling, stand-up paddle boarding, kayaking, kite-surfing and more. Go horse-riding, cantering along the water’s edge on a deserted bay. Or indulge like a pampered princess at a beachside spa. Hop on a boat to a tiny offshore cay fringed with lots more wonderful beaches. Enjoy a seafood picnic and watch the waves as they lap the shore, forming the sand into wavy, scallop-shaped mounds. As the sun sets and casts its gloriously golden glow, round off the day strolling along miles and miles of pristine sands.
There’s no doubt Anguilla’s thirty-three iconic beaches are some of the best in the world.
