Ready to decide on which beach to visit this spring? We’ve got you covered. Many consider spring the prime time to visit Anguilla when the crowds are nonexistent, average temperatures are high and the water is warmer – imagine that! Below are a few happenings this season to get your escape on the calendar:

Moonsplash: The Dune Preserve, Rendezvous Beach; March 10 to 12

Anguilla is teeming with musical talent, and Moonsplash is Caribbean’s oldest music festival coinciding with the full moon in March. Imagine a party under the stars on one of the best beaches in the world – it’s nothing short of magical! Moonsplash is a renowned island celebration held at The Dune Preserve, the funky and laid-back home of reggae star, Bankie Banx. John Mayer, Bon Jovi and Jimmy Buffet have all taken the stage at this legendary venue. Our very own Omalie 360 will be playing this year alongside other exciting artists!

Experience Anguilla With Locals at The Most Exciting Event of the Year – Carnival

Wild beach parties, exciting boat races and plenty of dancing, eating and drinking.  Welcome to the biggest event of the year in Anguilla – Carnival.  Though Anguilla is 35 square miles, it’s packed with spirit and liveliness, which few events exhibit as fully as Carnival.  The word “Carnival” may bring up images of Brazil and though the concept of general celebration is similar, Anguilla’s Carnival is it’s own unique festival.

“Carnival is hands down the most incredible time to live on, or be visiting, Anguilla,” exclaims Linda Hickox, owner of Cap Juluca.  “The excitement in the air is palpable, the happiness is boundless and the entire community comes together for nonstop partying and fun for over a week. If you experience Carnival once there’s a high likelihood you’ll be back to celebrate it again and again every year.”

In preparation for the big event happening soon, we’re going to detail the what, why, where and when of the Anguilla Carnival, so you can enjoy the celebrations just as much as the rest of us!
