Is it possible to bike the island in one day?  (6 Answers)

If I took the first ferry to Anguilla, and the last ferry back, I would have about 10 hours on the island. Factoring in customs, rental stuff, and getting back before ferry departure, I would have at least 8 hours to explore the island.

I wanted to rent a bike in Bowling Point, bike all the way to Cauls Pond, stop at Little Bay for some swimming and snorkeling, then back to Bowling Point. Maybe stop at one of the famous beaches if I have time.
I read that bike is a good way to explore the island, because it is flat. I mapped it on Google Earth, and that's about a 20 mile trip. I biked 16 miles before, and I didn't get back 'til dark, but that's because I left late, part of the journey was uphill, and we stopped on the way. But I actually covered more distance than I thought I would.
Factoring in the fact that I'll spot a lot to film, and take picture, and the fact that I will probably get lost a few times, do you think it is possible to bike this loop in 8 hours?
Are there any other ponds on the island where I can see birds? Because if there are closer ones, I can visit it instead of Cauls. Because Cauls looks a bit difficult to get to.
I want to visit the interior, because I like the habitat.

People said you need a car, but I will be unable to rent one, and I also enjoy exploring places on bike, so bike would be fun for me.
I just want to make sure I will make it back to catch the last ferry.

What are some experiences that you just have to experience in Anguilla?

I'd be visiting Anguilla with my boyfriend by the end of this year or early next year. We'd be there for over 2 weeks. We haven't been there before, but have heard a lot about the beaches, food and the culture there. So we've decided to take a beach front villa and make the most of that. Maybe a little secluded like this one- . We intend to do some snorkeling. What are the other attractions that we could try during our stay there? Any must visit restaurants or dishes? Places to see? Things to try? Please leave your suggestions.

Fun/romantic activities in Anguilla?  (2 Answers)

Hi all!

My wife and I will be traveling to Anguilla/S. Bart's at the end of the month. We'll be staying on Anguilla for 4 days and St.Bart's for 5 days. Does anyone have suggestions for fun/romantic activities while we're there, including info on how to book/reserve? I'm thinking of things like a sunset boat ride, snuba diving (but not scuba diving), zip-lining, day trips, romantic dinner somewhere special, etc. Any recommendations would be greatly appreciated!

Anyone been to Anguilla?

When I asked to balance my trip to St. Martin with a few days in a quiet, secluded spot, my travel agent recommended Anguilla. This would save me from having to buy a400 round-trip plane ticket to the Virgin Islands. (I had wanted to go to St. John.) Is Anguilla really tranquil and beautiful like St. John is?

Relocation  (1 Answer)

Hey there, I'm contemplating relocating to AXA and have a few questions. If I work in The Valley, where is the nicest proximate place to live? How expensive would a 2 bedroom furnished apartment be in that area? Could you recommend a real estate agent who rents flats in the are you recommend? Outside of housing, the cost of living is an area of concern. How expensive are utilities: water, electricity, DSL, cable and telephone? How expensive is food/groceries? Is everything imported or is stuff like seafood sold at local markets? I also understand most Anguillans head to SXM to do their shopping. Is this true and recommended? What is the annual cost of a driver's licence? Is there a road tax/MOT requirement? Is there a market in used cars? If so can you recommend any? Is there a minimum wage? What in USD would one need to earn to be able to afford a 2 bed, petrol, utilities and food?

Thanks, in advance for your assistance.

Affordable Restaurants  (1 Answer)

What are some more authentic and affordable restaurants in anguilla? I recall eating at a local place in town, but the name escapes me. Also, we managed to find a subway on that same road.

There was a chinese restaurant I imagine would be inexpensive, but very difficult to find.
