Anguilla yacht charter
Anguilla is one of the most chic destinations in the Caribbean: it has been discovered, but not by the masses. Strict zoning laws means the island stays beautiful, with sympathetic high-end developments including an unsurpassed selection of ultra-luxury villas.
World-class resorts provide some of the best amenities in the islands: from spa treatments at Malliouhana to the Greg Norman designed golf course at Temenos, there is something for everyone.
Anguilla is a is low-lying island, formed from coral and limestone, a British overseas territory in the North of the Leeward Islands just north of St Martin and St Barts, and is larger than both at 35 square miles.
Stunning white sands highlight the azure waters and there are 33 beaches to choose from so you can relax and enjoy the island’s signature tranquility set against a backdrop of green foliage and tropical flowers.
The island’s beauty has long since attracted artists from around the globe, making it a great place to shop for art. More than twenty galleries can be found displaying all kinds of pieces, from one-off oils to driftwood sculptures.
Sailing is a popular pastime here; in fact the only time the laid-back locals may seem stressed is during the annual Easter Monday Regatta. Otherwise peace reigns, and the island is quiet and uncongested.
It is no wonder yachting is so popular here; as well as the main island there are numerous islets and cays to explore and many areas such as Prickly Pear Cays are protected areas.
There are some great coral reefs for snorkeling and diving, and many of the uninhabited islands are alive with birds, lizards and other wildlife.
Anguilla is being guarded by locals who insist that any developments (and they prefer the luxury high end of the market) are delicately woven into the island’s peaceful and beautiful fabric.
Prickly Pear Cay: Great beach – huge piles of gorgeous sand, no overnight inhabitants are allowed although it can be busy with day trippers – but ideal for private yachts that can outstay the tourists…
