Anguilla

Sandy Ground, Anguilla

Anguilla

This tiny island paradise offers honeymooners over 30 white sand beaches, extraordinary scenery, world-class accommodations and mouth-watering cuisine. This British Overseas Territory is only 16 miles long and 3 miles wide at its widest point, but there is so much to do on such a small piece of land. Visitors can tour historic sites and museums, visit art galleries, go horseback riding, dance to island beats, take an excursion to its underwater world, go snorkeling, take an afternoon cruise, relax basking in the sun or stroll down the beach at sunset with someone special.
