Tucked away just east of Puerto Rico lies the paradise island of Anguilla. With white sand beaches, a turquoise sea, an air of tranquility, and a plethora of family-friendly activities, it’s a wonder that the island has escaped the grasps of overdevelopment and packs of imposing tourists. Because of this, Anguilla is a blank slate, where visitors are enabled to design any vacation they please.
As with any island in the sun, water sports and beach activities reign supreme in Anguilla. Multitudes of boat tours take water lovers out to sea for fresh air, gorgeous views, and prime fishing. The ultimate water experience to be had, though, is for the swimming enthusiast. Anguilla is home to several breathtaking bays, marine parks, and reef systems where snorkelers and scuba divers alike can enjoy the rich marine life. A trip to Anguilla would also not be complete without exploring the unique Pelican Trail at Little Bay. Visitors must ascend through the eco-park to the bluffs 200 feet above sea level before cascading down to a marvelous swimming hole. The spot also has a huge trampoline island in the water, glass bottom kayaks, and a diving platform.
For a more in depth look into the local history and culture of the island, guided sightseeing tours (ranging from a few hours to an entire day in length) depart from town. These tours take visitors back in time, winding through old villages and stopping at informative heritage sites. The more independently adventurous folk can also rent bicycles and map their own tour of the island. It is the perfect place to do so, as the terrain is flat and only a single main road exists.
While the island has maintained its remote charm, Anguilla also houses temples of indulgence and bliss that emulate their five star ratings. At the acclaimed Viceroy Anguilla, travelers can relax and treat themselves to the highest standards of luxury. The resort offers a variety of accommodation to suit the needs of any trip, from rooms and suites to villas and residence rentals. Guests arise to fabulous sun-kissed views of the pristine beach and clear sea before setting off on a day’s worth of vacation activities. Boat rides to the beautiful reef, island excursions, and water sports can all be arranged with ease through the resort, allowing guests to vacation both spontaneously or on a schedule. Visitors yearning for relaxation can pamper themselves at the lavish spa and wellness center. The spa offers a comprehensive menu of skin and body treatments, with specials and packages year round. A trip to the state-of-the art fitness center also gives guests various fitness options, including yoga classes, excursions, private training sessions, and general gym equipment. When it’s time to dine, guests will never be short of options, as the resort boasts five magnificent restaurants and lounges run by top chefs.
No matter what, there is always something for everyone for your beach vacation in Anguilla. Embracing an island pace of life has never been so simple. Contact a travel specialist from Concierge Travel Design to book your trip.
