The Caribbean island of Anguilla is a tiny island, only about 16 miles long and 3 miles wide. Although small, it boasts some of the Caribbean’s best and least crowded beaches. Tourism on the island is fairly new, especially compared to a lot of other Caribbean islands because development did not start until the early 1980s. Once development did begin, accommodations were pretty much grouped into two categories, either small beachfront inns or larger luxury based resorts. Amongst those hotels, there are many that cater to visitors wanting to splurge financially as there are hotels catering to people on a budget.
