Travel & Leisure's Readers have named Anguilla the NUMBER ONE island destination in the Caribbean in 2020 for the FOURTH consecutive year!
Anguilla, known by many visitors as "Tranquility Wrapped in Blue", is the northernmost island of the Leeward Islands in the Eastern Caribbean. The island is about 150 miles east of Puerto Rico and less than 6 miles north of St. Martin.
It is quite easy to get to Anguilla, with direct flights into CLAYTON J. LLOYD INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT (AXA) from Caribbean gateway airports in St. Maarten (SXM), San Juan (SJU) or Antigua (ANU).
Alternatively, many visitors choose to fly into neighboring St. Maarten (SXM) and take a short 20 minute ferry ride (there are several ferry options from the airport and Marigot) to Anguilla.
Anguilla is back and better than ever after Hurricane Irma! Tourist arrivals in 2019 were higher than ever before. In 2019 Anguilla was visited by more than 93,000 tourists (stay-over visitors), an increase of 23% over the previous record set back in 2007, and were trending higher in 2020 before the COVID-19 pandemic.
However, Anguilla did an exemplary job in managing this latest challenge. The island is COVID-19 free as of June 2020, and is preparing to welcome visitors back to the Caribbean's best island and set new tourism records in 2021.
