Anguilla information- visit (

    Anguilla is a friendly, English-speaking island located in the northeastern Caribbean.  A safe and peaceful community, Anguillians are gracious and hospitable, warm and welcoming.  Our island home is easy to explore with wonderful places and people to meet from end to end.

    With more than 100 restaurants packed into just 35 square miles, this low-key island has rightfully earned its rep as the culinary capital of the Caribbean. To experience the best over-the-top meals, don't miss CuisinArt, where an on-site hydroponic farm provides fresh ingredients daily for the hotel's various restaurants, which range from a Mediterranean café to an authentic Japanese teppanyaki and omakase. JS Tip: Check out the weekly Chef’s Table food and wine pairing dinner with Chef Jasper Schneider or sign up for a cooking class. At the new Four Seasons Anguilla, the see-and-be-scene crowd heads to the Sunset Lounge for sushi, sashimi, and tapas—paired with fine champagne, aged rums, and Cuban cigars, while seafood lovers make the hotel's buzzy Cobà a must-stop on any island foodie tour. Opened in 1984 with a 2-Michelin star chef at its helm, the Malliouhana is credited with bringing fine dining to the island. Today, under the direction of NYC-import Chef Marc Alvarez, the resort serves a standout menu that highlights local flavors and ingredients, and has the island’s largest selection of rums from around the world; schedule a tasting with “rummelier” Albert Lake, who also oversees the resort’s 25,000-bottle-strong wine cellar. If you'd rather leave your resort, try local favorites Tasty’s Restaurant (get the steamed fish with root vegetables, or the conch stew and dumplings), the seafood-focused E’s Oven, or Ken’s Ribs and Chicken (open only on the weekends) for BBQ and ginger beer. As for popular food trucks, head to The Valley (we love Papa Lash’s for his famous plantain sandwiches), or hit waterfront spots like Jacala on Meads Bay (known for its whole grilled snapper and steak tartare), Robinson Crusoe for the johnnycakes, or Smokey’s at the Cove for the potent rum punch.Book Hotels in Anguilla
