More about the island

Geography: Anguilla is a caribbean island, part of the British overseas territory about seven miles north of St. Martin/St. Maarten; it is a blip on the radar - a mere 35 square miles (96 km2) with just six traffic lights. The flat eel-like shape main land is about 16 miles (26km) long from West to East for 3 miles (5km) wide. The highest point - Crocus Hill - is only 213 feet (65m) above sea level. There are no rivers or streams. The territory includes a number of other smaller islands and cays, mostly tiny and uninhabited: Scrub Island, Sandy Island, Dog Island, Prickley Pear Cays, Scilly Cay, Sombrero, Anguillita.
