Welcome to the quaint fishing village, Island Harbour. With Anguilla villas dotting the surrounding cliffs and shores, sailboats docked in the calm waters and Scilly Cay just offshore, this is a perfectly picturesque paradise.
Let's see where we are on the island...
Sailboats, fresh lobster and crayfish, "better-than-St. Martin" croissants, and tasty pizza and burgers.
You can find it all in Island Harbour!
Island Harbour is honest perfection. Three "must do's"...
1) Artisan's pizza One of the island's best!
2) Le Bon Pain Yvonne bakes baguettes and pastries that are better than the the best from St. Martin! What a find!
3) Scilly Cay for a full day of fun and fresh lobster and crayfish.
Your beach problems are all taken care of here, too. Island Harbour's beach is ideal for swimming. The calm waves lap at the shore, leaving you able to float for hours!
Rounding out the beach is...
Set at the water's edge is the Arawak Beach Club, one of Anguilla's most iconic hotels. Painted tropical colors that catch the eye, the hotel's cheerful atmosphere has always been one of our family's favorites.
When it comes to villas, there are many in the area. There are sensational mansions along the cliffs east and west of Island Harbour.
Being so far East, it's rather out of the way, a good 20-30 minutes by car to the Valley! But that may not be important to you... and Anguilla real estate does abound, both high in the cliffs like Villa Soleil to the east of the harbour, inland from the beach, and in some rocky areas to the west.
To be nestled up in the cliffs would be bliss... with the spectacular views, the nearness to perfect pizza and seafood, and also just a short hop to East Shoal Bay.
Truly... Anguilla real estate at its best.
