Anguilla is a British overseas territory located in the heart of the Caribbean Sea.

With only 91 square kilometers, this small island east of Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands has remarkable coral reefs and beaches.

Because of the Northeastern trade winds, Anguilla is relatively cool and dry, with an average annual temperature of 27 °C (80.6 °F).

Also, the island is visited by tropical storms and hurricanes between July to October.

It is possible to catch waves in Anguilla.

Try Dolphins (point break), Meads Bay, or Savannah (reef break), where you'll enjoy interesting surfing conditions.
