Anguilla: The Dry Desert

by Liam Johnson
(Louisville, KY)

For me, nothing beats Anguilla's warm, dry climate. Everyday is flawless, temperatures are in the high 80s and the burning, hot sun always blazes down, keeping us all warm and brown... Without a single cloud in the clear, blue sky of course! :-)

If you love this weather, though, you have to appreciate the fact that Anguilla is a flat, desert island. Thank goodness! If Anguilla were as hilly and mountainous as its French and Dutch neighbor, St. Martin/Sint Maarten, Anguilla would see just as many dark clouds and rain storms as that Caribbean island, and many more like it in the Caribbean.

Nothing says Anguilla like its warm climate and desert landscape!

Thanks for your site,

Yes, we get the better view, too
by: Nori

Liam, I should have added this one to the survey. Most islands in the Caribbean are so lush and volcanic. I've always thought that we get the better deal with St. Maarten/St. Martin.

After all,we get to look at beautiful, green mountains, often covered in myst or clouds. But when they look at us in Angullla, all they see is a brown line on the horizon, sunny and no clouds.

What a great choice for the quintessential Anguilla.

Desert to sea
by: J. MacIntyre

Yes, this is a super choice for what makes Anguilla! When you walk out to Windward Point, you can see the desert merge right into the beach. Where else would you see that?

Only Anguilla, as far as I know. Good choice!
