Secluded bays, mysterious caves and white-sand beaches. Anguilla's tropical temptations make for a postcard-perfect visit to the Caribbean. Impeccably clear water make it a prime spot for glass-bottomed kayaking and snorkelling around its multicoloured reefs. The small island packs in over 30 pristine beaches, with Shoal Bay, Barnes, Road and Little Bay among the most popular. If you're not content to just top up your tan and swim in the mesmerising turquoise waters, then the island offers an eclectic mix of activities. Try your hand at scuba diving, boat trips and horse riding, or soak up local sounds at the annual music festivals. One of the most interesting things you can do whilst in Anguilla is to explore one of its many caves. The Fountain Cavern lies 50 feet beneath the island's surface and houses native rock art and freshwater pools. Authentic Caribbean beach huts and designer villas are available to rent throughout the island, but you'll also find a good choice of characterful budget hotels.
