After two months of hibernation so to speak, Anguilla has had its grand re-opening. Though the Caribbean has unbelievably phenomenal weather all year long, it still has seasons. Seasons in the Caribbean refer more to the ebb and flow of tourism, than they do the weather. For example, high season, which attracts the most tourists to the island each year, spans mid-December through March 31.
Anguilla features two large festivals a year: Festival Del Mar, and Carnival. Festival Del Mar takes place Easter weekend, and is a celebration of the island’s seafaring heritage. Carnival, the biggest event of the year on Anguilla, takes place in August, and afterwards, much of the island literally shuts down. The months of September and October are dedicated to rest, renovations, and utter detachment from tourism. As quick as a snap, it’s back to beautiful business as usual beginning November 1st. Except, a little known fact is that between now and Christmas is the premier time to visit Anguilla.
“While the Weather Outside is Frightful”…ly Marvelous
While the weather is just beginning to get frightful in most places, November in Anguilla is spectacular. With an average temperature of 80 degree, the passing of storm season, and at most 3 inches of rain, there’s simply no better time of the year to experience the island.
Turquoise waters are still enticingly warm and relaxing, and you can take your pick of any one of the 33 immaculate beaches Anguilla has to offer. When you first arrive you might do a double take, but we assure you there’s no snow, just extremely beautiful white sand.
November brings a few light showers, but there are few things more peaceful than a warm rain shower on a luscious and peaceful island.
Devour Every Inch of the Island Uninterrupted
Weather aside, there’s still one more exceptionally compelling reason to visit Anguilla in November and early December – lack of people. Granted, Anguilla, even in its peak season, never feels “crowded” per se, but there is a calm, but constant, stream of visitors from Christmas Time through March. Come November, though, when the island is fully functioning and ready to embrace visitors, you’ll find it mostly empty. It’s the calm before the storm, sensational conditions, yet most tourists are busy preparing for the oncoming holiday season to consider this time of year optimal for a luxurious getaway. Which is precisely why it’s the best time to visit! You’ll receive all of the perks of Anguilla, without a single drawback. Every single luxury Caribbean resort will be virtually empty, leaving every ounce of luxury for you to devour alone.
Once Christmas Time arrives, the crowds set in, and are there to stay until the end of March. Prices will reflect the surge of tourists, and acquiring coveted dinner reservations will become a challenge once more. Currently, Anguilla is offering the lowest prices all around, there’s hardly an evening that necessitates a reservation, and the airfare will fill your heart with joy.
