Cheap flights from Anguilla

Anguilla, the northernmost country in the Lesser Antilles, features an idyllic vacation spot that has retained its simple shacks without giving itself up to stone houses for tourists. The preservation of their heritage establishments makes Anguilla stand out from the cosmopolitan destinations in the region. This mix of tradition somehow meshes with the upscale resort amenities that mainly support the country's tourism industry. Travellers going here can therefore expect a rich cultural trip after a day at the beach. Anguilla’s capital and largest city is The Valley.

 

Where to go

Other than swimming by the beach and engaging in water sports and cruises, sightseeing is also fun to do in this North Caribbean island country. Travellers venturing here can explore Big Spring National Park and view the petroglyphs called Spirit Eyes in the collapsed cave. One can also stay for a while at the prime birdwatching spots to look for tropical mockingbirds, grey catbirds, and the Caribbean martin. There is also Fountain Cavern National Park to explore where one will find more ancient carvings and an underground cave that served as a venue of pilgrimage and worship.

 

Another place to see is the Stoney Ground Marine Park which feature an 18th century shipwreck. Diving here will let tourists view 10-foot high cannons, impressive anchors, and numerous other relics around the El Buen Consejo. Tourists must be skilled in scuba diving, however, to fully appreciate the sights in and around the remains of the galleon. 

 

After going back above ground, one can visit the Heritage Museum Collection to look at the collection of Arawak slave shackles, vintage cameras, and household items. The major display to look forward to is the confiscated gun of a St Kitts' policeman in the onset of the 1967 revolution, among other important exhibits.

 

Travellers going around the Caribbean can visit San Juan from Anguilla. San Juan is a delight to explore with its old 15-feet thick walls and well-maintained colonial artefacts in Old San Juan. El Morro is a popular destination as it is regarded as the oldest Spanish fort in the Americas. The impressive structure dates back to 1539, which was finished after almost two centuries of construction. 

 

Another fort to discover is the Fuerte San Cristobal which features a museum, gift shop, and military archives. One can also go on a tour of the 27-acre grounds and see the 150-feet walls up close. From these landmarks, travellers can check out the architecture of the Casa Blanca, which was once the residence for Spanish

governors and now a museum displaying native and colonial relics.

 

A trip to Spain can follow for tourists interested in going on a long-distance trip. Although Madrid and Barcelona offer the most popular attractions, travellers can explore other parts of the country such as Segovia where one will see the Roman aqueduct, which is one of the best-preserved Roman monuments in Spain. Those staying near Madrid, on the other hand, can visit Cuenca and view a great example of a medieval city. Built on the steep mountainside, the hanging houses make an entrancing sight. Travellers interested in the Moslem heritage of Spain can make a detour to Cordoba to see the mezquita. This mosque is particularly fascinating due to the large number of pillars and arches in the main hall.
