Island Harbour

By in Area Profiles with 0 Comments

Anguilla’s curious shape, long, narrow and at an angle, ranks high in the list of factors that determine the direction in which life flows on the island. Almost four times as long as it is wide, Anguilla’s great divide runs from east to west, rather than from north to south. While the West has long […]

Salt pan and Sandy Ground Anguilla, 2009

We begin our series of architectural landmarks in Anguilla paying tribute to a building that, though modest, played a central and remarkably varied role in the life of local residents over the course of more than one hundred years: Sandy Ground’s pump house. Before hurricane Irma razed it to the ground in September 2017, the […]

Beginning with Sandy Point, on the western edge of Blowing Point, four simply flabbergasting bays open up in quick succession: Rendezvous Bay, Cove Bay, Maundays Bay and Shoal Bay West coil […]

View of Dog Island and Pricley Pear real estate anguilla

When the first English settlers arrived in Anguilla—likely running away from creditors, the law, or religious persecution—they were greeted by the virginal white sand and embarrassingly beautiful beaches of a barren, seemingly uninhabited island. That was back in the mid seventeenth century, though ironically what potential investors found roughly 320 years later was not all […]

Wealth comes in many guises, especially when it refers to the public resources of whole countries or territories. Some have oil, some have gold, others have massive snow-capped mountains that they turn into skiing resorts. Anguilla’s most precious natural resource is, without doubt, the many exceptional beaches that garland the island’s coastline, especially along the […]

Historically Anguilla never enjoyed the prosperity of some of its neighbors, most notably St. Kitts, Nevis and even St. Eustatius—all of which were immensely rich at some point in the 17th and 18th century. Unlike the Dutch, the British found little purpose for possessions in the Caribbean that could not successfully be turned into single-crop […]

If you have visited Anguilla the likelihood is you arrived by boat from St. Martin. The ferry terminal at Blowing Point is the point of entry of more than three quarters of the island’s visitors, which means that the silhouette of Anguilla gaining shape in the distance as the boat approaches from the south is […]

Shoal Bay East & Sea Rocks

The devil is in the detail, they say, but in Anguilla the detail isn’t as devilish as it is sublime. At first sight it might be hard to grasp why Anguilla’s coastline should be different to any other island in the Caribbean. Yes, Anguilla is flatter than most islands but that’s just because its foundations […]

Though little known among visitors, Anguilla’s southeast coast is considered a hot real estate commodity by expats and locals alike. Detached from the tourist trail, the area between Spanish Quarter and East End isn’t quite as tidy or as glitzy as The West. And yet, the fact that the wow effect here is perhaps one […]
