Luxury Yacht Charters in AnguillaThe low coral island of Anguilla sits at the top of the Leeward Island chain. It is a remote place of magnificent soft, undeveloped, dazzlingly white-sand beaches, and the most turquoise blue sea possible. There is only one small town and just a scattering of houses between the exclusive hotels and villas. The attraction for yachts are the beaches on the coast and the pure relaxation and escapism that come from the island’s seclusion, as well as the friendliness of its people. Anguilla’s National Park features unspoiled deserted sand Islands.
Cruising in Anguilla
The most Northern of the Leeward Islands, this British Territory is intriguingly different, perhaps one of the regions best kept secrets. Hosting some of the Caribbean’s most spectacular beaches & national parks, the locals thankfully guarded this pristine paradise from developers, and as a result Anguilla attracts luxury yachts and high-end clientele who appreciate the low rise luxury resorts & quiet anchorages.
Spectacular views of the sun setting over the water, calm bays and secluded coves, Anguilla is all about relaxation and rejuvenation. To really get away from it all a highlight for any visiting yachtsman is Prickly Pear Cays – a pair of uninhabited Islands with shallow waters and the finest sand imaginable.
What you need to know
Two of Anguilla’s most famous locations are the beaches of Shoal Bay East and Rendezvous Bay. Both are picture perfect beaches and exactly what you imagine when you look at any travel brochure for the Caribbean.
The only real town on Anguilla is called The Valley it has a post office, a bank and a handful of shops where tourists can shop for groceries and souvenir items.
Jet Skis are prohibited in the National Parks to ensure the environment remains tranquil and peaceful.
With no international airport, the best way to visit Anguilla is via yacht. Cruise to Anguilla as part of your seven-night itinerary of the Leeward Islands and enjoy a few days of relaxation and escapism before cruising onwards to St Barths.
Crystal clear water and good reef formations make scuba diving on Anguilla a treat – seven shipwrecks, a number of coral reefs teaming with marine life and Dog Island which is home to Black Tip, Reef, Lemon and Nurse Sharks.
Anguilla hosts a collection of world class spas, The Viceroy & CuisinArt are the top spots for spa treatments, offering full spa services to reduce stress and revitalize the body and soul, or for a treatment on the beach Malachi Day Spa provides private out-door treatment rooms.
Considered the best in the Caribbean region Anguilla Tennis Academy has six lighted, gated courts with a pro shop including racket rentals, locker rooms and even partners for play are available.
Enjoy a bird watching or an environmental tour of Anguilla’s vibrant eco-systems rich with interesting and varied bird life, including indigenous and migratory species.
The keen golfer can enjoy a round at the Greg Norman designed championship golf course at the Cuisine Art Resort and Spa. The 7,063 yard course offers dramatic elevation changes, water features, a Pro Shop and unrivaled views of Anguilla’s turquoise waters at nearly every hole.
With a formal heritage which harkens back to the early 1900’s “Boatrace” is both an event as well as a tradition. As a spectator it is a magical sight watching the traditional hand carved schooners race with their oversized white sails against the turquoise water, some of which carrying up to 14 crew.
The island has an award-winning dining scene that offers discerning travelers international sophistication, elegance and creative cuisine. A-listers and celebrities are at home and comfortable with the island style of elegance and glamour — one that is free from the restraints of neckties, jackets, high heels, and “who’s who”.

Planning Your Yacht Charter in Anguilla
A crewed yacht charter is the ultimate indulgence – for some a once in life-time experience, for others a yearly ritual exploring new locations and exciting destinations only accessible by boat. Along with the captain we’ll assist in planning a comprehensive itinerary prior to your charter based on your interests and requests, as well as pointing out the “must sees” in the area.
For the easiest flight connections it is best to meet your yacht in St Martin which has an international airport with daily connections from North America and Europe. St Martin is a short hop from Anguilla, so you’ll be enjoying the picture perfect shores within a few hours of landing.
Contact our charter specialists and we will guide you through the booking process including assisting with airport transfers and pre charter hotel recommendations.
Choosing A Luxury Yacht & Crew
Once we have discussed your preferences in detail we will present selections of online yacht brochures with photos, menus and crew details and will continue to do so until we find the perfect match for you in terms of size, style & budget.
If you have firm dates in mind we’ll confirm availability with the owner and place a courtesy hold on your dates whilst your charter agreement is prepared and signed. It’s a good idea to have a second choice in mind, especially for busy holiday periods when yachts book up quickly.
We recommend booking your charter at least six months in advance to ensure that we secure your preferred yacht. Some of the most sought after yachts will book one year in advance for certain weeks or events. It is always possible to accommodate last minute bookings however we do recommend booking as early as possible to avoid disappointment.
Twice a year we personally inspect the yachts and spend time with the crew to ensure that we are representing only the very best.
When to go
From April through to November many of Anguilla’s beaches become the nesting grounds for Leatherback, Green and Hawksbill turtles, take advantage of this unique and wondrous event and spy on and potentially see turtles nesting, and hatching in the wild.
During the March full moon, enjoy two evenings of live music on the beach under the stars at “Moon Splash” music festival hosted by Reggae artist Bankie Banks – Sunday beach party finishes off this low-key event with musicians jamming at the beach bar.
The Easter Monday Boatrace kicks off the start of the boat-racing season – starting and finishing in Sandy ground. Racing continues throughout the season culminating in August with the Champion of Champion race. The Boatrace is accompanied by BBQ, music and dancing.
