A favorite vacation spot of water lovers, Anguilla is a popular destination for wreck diving, snorkeling, or parasailing. The historic district of The Valley is full of old-style wood houses, including the Wallblake House, one of the only surviving plantation houses in the Caribbean. The ruins of the Old Prison are at the highest point in Anguilla, and provide stunning views of the bright blue sea.

Crocus Bay Beach

Reviewed By rossdmd - Panama City Beach, Florida

The bay has beautiful, small and calm. The beach is small,quiet, and nice. There are public restrooms, the Da Vida restaurant takes up the left half of the beach, but the right side is very quiet and nice.
There are two pipes leading to the desalination plant. They are home to many different fish so the snorkeling is great.
Calvin of Little Bay Boat Services 264-772-1332 is under the big tree and can shuttle you over to Little Bay if you so desire.
The restaurant has a casual side which has beach chairs out front.
Certainly this is a nice afternoon at least.

Bethel Methodist Church

Reviewed By MissBonafide - The Valley, Anguilla

Located in South Hill perched upon a hill overlooking Sandy Ground is where you'll find Bethel Methodist Church. The structure is layered stones (beautiful work), open out shutter windows & double wooden red doors. The inside space is spacious as pews lines each row with over head fans & light fixtures. Not to mention, a huge and powerful message which states:- "The love of Christ constrains us". Also, on site...a Pre-School & Burial ground. Service begins at 10am & follows traditional worship service.

We have been collecting Cheddie's carvings for years. They are gorgeous and he is so talented and nice. We also can have lunch at his fun restaurant next door. His carvings are in the Royal Museum in London.

Stone Cellar Art Gallery

Reviewed By MissBonafide - The Valley, Anguilla

Personally was invited by the great Sir Roland Richardson who is a humble and very gifted artist. There are a variety of island art either painted or etched, all done on site. The Flamboyant flowers/trees paintings are my favorite. I love how he captures the essence of island living and was even transported circa 1990 where Anguilla Beaches were still untouched and you can only find racing boats perched on the sand and a domino table under the shade of grape trees...

St. Gerard Roman Catholic Church

Reviewed By IrishFan-80 - Lancaster, PA

We are blessed to attend St. Gerard's two times on this trip. The visiting priest from Chicago was terrific. The Choir amazing! Last Sunday the Anguilla Retired Persons association was in attendance--very nice! On our last trip to Anguilla we learned that the parish is supported in part by the Divine Word Missions Society which does amazing Mission work around the globe. Highly, highly recommend.

Wallblake House

Wallblake House, built in 1787, is the oldest and only surviving plantation house on Anguilla. It is one of the few plantation houses in the Caribbean where the entire complex of buildings including the kitchen, stable and workers quarters have survived virtually intact. The Wallblake House Trust is maintaining the complex so that it may thrive as a center for cultural, social and educational events for the entire island community.

Trip advisers commentary sums up the place perfectly, but felt i should mention it can be found on the edge of The Valley, which is Anguilla's capital, blink and you will miss it but is just by the small roundabout which has a facility to tell the time and temperature (when working) there is adequate space for parking, and anytime is good to go there if you have not seen a plantion house before and wanted to see what life was like at the time as never any queue's which is one reason why i love Anguilla so much, no Cruise ships dumping thousands of people off each day, so take in at your leisure, and definitly well maintained!
