Senior Visitors Are BIG on Tiny Anguilla

Can you find Anguilla on a map?  It’s in the Caribbean (British West Indies) and is surrounded by many other islands that are much more famous, but Anguilla continues to attract senior tourists. Anguilla has unrivaled white beaches and beautiful azure waters.

Like several other islands, Anguilla has become a popular tax haven, with no capital gains, estate, profit or other forms of direct taxation on either individuals or corporations. The northern most island in the Leeward chain, Anguilla is just an hours flight from Puerto Rico and only a 20 minute ferry ride from St. Martin/Maarten to the south.

Small and Famed

The entire island is approximately 16 miles (26 km) long by 3 miles (5 km) at its widest point. It is said that the name Anguilla derives from the word for “eel” due to its eel-like shape. Some say that it was Columbus who actually named the island.

Is it the “best of all the caribbean islands?”  Some say ‘yes’, and this link gives us good reason to think that might be accurate. With its sunshine, warm hearted inhabitants, low crime rate and NO McDonalds, it rates very high as a senior winter destination.

So what makes Anguilla so unique? Lots of reasons, but mostly it is what one vacationer called the “little things.” Send for your free Anguilla guide online for additional information and view a few dozen images of the island of anguilla. Its surroundings all appear to have a nice, blue, serene background.
