Warm and welcoming, small and secluded. Anguilla is the most northerly of the Leeward Islands in the Lesser Antilles. Approximately 35 square miles, it is ?at and low-lying, comprised of coral and limestone and covered mostly with rock, sparse scrub oak, few trees and some salt ponds. There is little arable land on Anguilla.
The island’s rich history is embodied in its culture and heritage. From the ancient Amerindian settlements through European colonization to its 1967 Revolution, these and other events are woven into the tapestry of Anguilla’s life and passed on with honor and pride from generation to generation.
