A British Territory in the Caribbean, Anguilla is small and low-lying, with many caves and attractive coral reefs, which make it a popular snorkelling destination. Visitors can also ride horses, hike or play golf. There are plenty of bars and restaurants to kill an evening. The economy depends greatly on luxury tourism. Only 16 miles (25 kilometres) long, it is very much a place to kick back and relax.

Life is laid-back here. It is very close to Saint Martin and there are regular ferries throughout the day, so the two places can be easily combined on a single visit.
