Information on Anguilla, Caribbean
At the northern extreme of the arcing Leeward Islands, dividing the Caribbean and the Atlantic Ocean, lies Anguilla, a tiny British protectorate of stunning aquamarine beauty and culinary delights. Information on Anguilla points to the fact that this is no thrill-seekers paradise - the island prides itself, first and foremost, on offering a peaceful haven to harried vacationers. The people here are friendly, service is top-notch, and the beaches rival any in the Caribbean, but growth is controlled. Don't expect to find glittering casinos or huge duty-free outlets, they just don't exist on Anguilla. If you're looking to be pampered, however, this is the place to be. Anguilla is especially known for its wide selection of sophisticated restaurants; 70 establishments dot the island, an amazing number considering it is one of the smallest in the Caribbean.
