Private jet trip family fun on Anguilla isn’t as obvious as what you might find on a Disney cruise or at the Atlantis resort, but if you have kids with a spirit of adventure and love the beach, this friendly island has plenty to offer for families vacationing at one of Inspirato’s dozen-plus villason Anguilla’s north shore and quiet West end.
Anguilla boasts dozens of beautiful beaches, including Mead’s Bay, where the soft sand has helped earn it the title of the world’s best beach. Maunday’s Bay and Rendezvous Bay are both known for their placid waters, while Shoal Bay is the place to go for snorkeling.
Families can enjoy waterskiing, tubing, and banana-boat rides together, or sign up for Junior’s Glass Bottom Boat Tour for a relaxing, eye-popping tour of the Shoal Bay Reef. Daytripping to one of Anguilla’s offshore islands for a picnic and a swim — Scilly Cay, Prickly Pear Cay, and Sandy Island, to name a few favorites — is a highlight of any Anguilla vacation.
The kids can make some new finned friends at Dolphin Fantaseas, or scan the beaches at Maundays Bay, Meads Bay, Captain’s Bay, or Limestone Bay for signs of nesting sea turtles between April and November. A horseback ride along Savannah Bay can become a fun family outing or a romantic break for mom and dad.
Active kids will find lots to love about Anguilla, which can be easily navigated by bicycle and also offers some interesting hiking opportunities. The Pelican Trail, for example, leads from the Katouche Bay bluffs down to the sea, where you’ll find a diving platform, an offshore trampoline island, and watersports like kayaking and snorkeling.
Boat racing is Anguilla’s national sport, so naturally the Anguilla Sailing Association offers learn-to-sail programs for children and adults alike. Or, get your kids swinging their racquets with a lesson at the Anguilla Tennis Academy. For games that anyone can play, visit Play-A-Round for mini golf and bumper boats.
The Old Salt Factory and Pumphouse in Sandy Ground will give your family a taste of local history, highlighting the time (not so long ago) when salt mining was the biggest business on Anguilla, not tourism. Break up you days with a visit to one of the island’s many roadside restaurants (casual places where you’ll meet plenty of friendly Anguillans), pub food at the Pumphouse restaurant, or snacks at daVida’s Bayside Grill, where the fabulous views from Crocus Hill come free with your meal.
