We owe a debt of thanks to those who maintain an Anguilla webcam. It's work, it's expensive, and it sure is mighty nice of them to think of us lovers of Anguilla. After all...
When we still lived in Montreal, there were times when I just couldn't stand the dismal winters. January was so cold. And February was still brutal, but we would be getting close.
Close to what?
Close to our family's March Spring Break to the best of all Caribbean islands!
But what would we do when we couldn't get away to the warm, welcoming Anguilla beaches?
Let Anguilla come to us, live through the Anguilla webcams situated on the island!
It's not easy to maintain a quality webcam in Anguilla. Sea salt would "eat" the video cam if it was placed outdoors. So it needs to be placed inside a glass enclosure, mounted in a safe place, hook up to fast enough bandwidth to give us all a good show, and maintain it!
So my profound thanks to those who maintain Anguilla webcams.
Viceroy provides a magnificent, live, streaming video of magnificent Meads. You can see the entire sweep of the beach, all the way to Malliouhana Hotel, at the far end of the beach.
Outstanding Anguilla cam!
NOTE: To view the webcams above, view in a desktop browser (the webcam is not compatible with mobile devices).
Update 2016: The Anguilla webcams below are currently down, sadly. We will update this page again as soon as they are brought back online.
This cam will put you in that laid-back, beachy mood! Set up right down on the beach at Anacaona Boutique Hotel, it makes you feel right "there" at the center of it all. Ahhhh!
A recent addition to the webcam in Anguilla scene is an updated one set up by Roy's in Sandy Ground.
They had maintained a more primitive webcam for years before. This more modern one updates every three seconds, good enough to check out the weather, wave size and to see who's on the beach.
It almost feels as if I'm sitting on the rail at Roy's!
Active X... ADSL... Axis... MJPEG.. video.cgi.... it's a geek's dream. Somehow, they bring this technical magic to our computers.
Our thanks go out to those who take the time and expense to keep webcams of Anguilla.
We know it's not easy keeping us warm!
