A video about Anguilla. ____________________________________________________________________
We made this video of Anguilla about 10 years ago and not too much has changed. Still great beaches with pure white sand and clear blue water. Small town feel where eveyone says "Hi" and fabulous innovative restaurants with a variety of dining choices. Just look at this guy pigging out on mussels at Big Spring in Island Harbour.
NEWS FLASH!! New shuttle port near the SXM airport coming soon, early October. Click the boat for photos of the port.
If you are planning a trip to Anguilla, here is some important information about getting to the island that will save you lots of time and energy.
FIRST: Don't try booking a flight to Anguilla AXA
Type in SXM, not AXA
Anguilla has a regional airport and has no flights directly from America or Europe. But, we do have the island of Sint Maarten only a 20 minute boat ride from Anguilla. Sint Maarten has a very nice, modern international airport with flights from USA and Europe.
So when you are booking your flight, type in SXM, arrive in St. Maarten and get a ferry or shuttle boat to Anguilla. It is a short pleasant trip and a great way to begin your holiday. Best part, the regular ferry is only $15.00 per person one way.
