Where is Anguilla?

Probably one of the most often asked question we get about our upcoming trip is…where is Anguilla?

Islands that lie on the Caribbean plate are called the “West Indies”. They are divided into two regions: The Antilles and the Bahamas/Turks and Caicos Islands.

There are two sets of islands that make up the “Antilles” (the larger portion of the West Indies): the “Lesser Antilles” and the “Greater Antilles”. The “Greater Antilles” are formed of bigger islands like Puerto Rico, Jamaica, Cuba, and Haiti/Dominican Republic. The “Lesser Antilles” include Barbados, St. Barts, Dominica, St. Martin/ Sint Maarten, and,  Anguilla! These islands are located in the Eastern part of the Caribbean sea, bordering the Atlantic ocean.
