Shoal Bay is one of the best spots in Anguilla where, while snorkeling or diving, you can often spot schools of stingrays, a myriad of multicolored fish and beautiful sea turtles.

Anguilla, the small Caribbean pearl of the Windward Islands. Of all the Caribbean islands, it is perhaps the least frequented, but this does not mean that it is the least beautiful, quite the opposite in fact. Located in the eastern Caribbean, it enjoys a tropical climate all year round, crystal clear sea and over 30 white sand beaches. The average temperature is around 28° with very little rain during the year, the only period to avoid are the months of August, September and October where it is possible to encounter some tropical storms/hurricanes.



To get to the island you must first stop at Saint Martin airport and then take a public ferry or private charter and in about half an hour you arrive at your destination.


How much does it cost?

As for the costs, unfortunately they are quite high, on average you have to calculate around 3000 dollars per person including flight, food and accommodation. Furthermore, it is worth considering the fact that all the excursions you want to do on site have expensive costs. In our opinion, if you want to spend less, but at the same time want to visit this pearl of the Caribbean, you can plan a trip to nearby Saint Martin and reach it in the same day with a private charter.

What does the island offer?

From a naturalistic point of view, this island offers so much to admire, dozens of beaches with very white sand, uncontaminated places, crystal clear water, dreamlike flora and fauna.
