There are many maps of Anguilla. I wanted to build one that one that would be fun (and useful) in printed form. And, more recently, it has also become helpful (and free) for your smartphone or tablet.
Using Google Earth, I did just that.
Offline, I've used the printed version of this map of Anguilla from the (cold) comfort of my home (before moving to Anguilla) to vicariously enjoy (and re-live) all that Anguilla has to offer.
I bounced down untraveled, bumpy backroads.
I hiked menacingly high cliffs!
I caught some Z's on Shoal Bay's smooth, warm sand.
I even enjoyed a delicious BBQ lobster & crayfish combo at Nat's!
Phew! What a day!
OK, so I didn't physically plant my foot in the Caribbean sand back then.
But thanks to Google Earth, you can now have the best map of Anguilla for...
I originally created this map of Anguilla for my Dad when we were still living in Montreal. You should have seen his eyes light up! I hope yours will, too, both at home and in Anguilla on your iPad or Kindle.
While Google Maps is great for exploring Anguilla while you are online, it's not much use if you don't have Net access (no G4 in Anguilla).
So I've converted "online" to "offline" by turning a series of "cutaways" of regions of Anguilla into one, multi-page PDF file. With this PDF map of Anguilla, you can see right down to Anguilla's backroads and beaches and ritzy, glitzy mansions... in 3-D!
(You can download it below.)
If you "prefer paper," print, bind and use. Or, on your next real Anguilla vacation, bring this digital map of Anguilla with you on your mobile device.
Even if you are not in Anguilla, you'll love looking at it, exploring in your mind.
Here's your own digital map of Anguilla...
