Anguilla Yacht Charters
Anguilla, the northernmost of the Leeward Islands, is an ideal vacation destination for yacht charters which is comprised not only of the main island, but also of numerous islets and cays, including Sandy Island, Dog Island, Prickley Pear Cays, Scrub Island, and Sombrero Island. This tropical island is situated in the eastern edge of the Caribbean and offers beautiful, sunny, 80-degree weather and cooling breezes virtually year round.
Tourists enjoy yacht charters which allow them to sample the various islands within the Anguilla territory as well as spend some time enjoying the flavor of the island itself.
The Valley is the center of modern renovations with updated storefronts and chic shops. The older stores and West Indian cottages have been modernized and offer a wide variety of goods for locals and tourists alike. Restaurants serve locally caught seafood, including lobster and crayfish, welch and conch, grouper, snapper, and swordfish, although the more expensive catches are only served on special occasions. Other fresh seafood dishes are rockfish, oldwife, bonito, cavally, and barracuda; and meats on Western Indian menus may consist of mutton, chicken, and pork ribs. While on the island, be sure to try some Mawby, a soft drink derived from tree bark.
In the lower valley is the Historic District, which offers a view of some of the prettiest dwellings in the old style, including Miss Marjorie Hodge’s Homestead, The Warden’s Place, Koal Keel Restaurant, and other ancient buildings of both architectural and artistic interest.
Activities in Anguilla run the gamut from lounging on the beach to mountain biking and everything in between. The Temenos Golf Course, designed by Greg Norman, offers a challenging game with beautiful views.
The unique layout of the island – only three miles wide at the most – allows for Anguilla yacht charter guests to see both coasts in some of the narrower locations. Hiking along the rocky formations or horseback riding along the beach are popular activities on Anguilla. Watersports are always enjoyable and yacht charter guests enjoy the dancing and live entertainment that is part of this Caribbean island’s night life.
