Autumn Activities on Anguilla
While many hotels and restaurants shut down around the island for hurricane season during September and October, November is a great time to take advantage of lower fall pricing for air fare and accommodations, as well as a lack of crowds before the popular winter season starts.
When you come, take the time to enjoy both outdoor and rainy-day activities, from kayaking and stand up paddleboarding to visiting Anguilla’s best historic sites, like the Wallblake House and the Heritage Collection Museum. Anguilla receives heavy rainfall during September and October; the humidity picks up from August through November.
Charters and attractions like the Aqua Park, Shoal Bay Scuba, and Tradition Sailing close from mid- to late August until early October to November, so plan accordingly. Many restaurants close beginning in late July through August and re-open during October and November. You’ll want to call ahead to make sure the restaurants you want to try will be open for your visit in the caribbean in the fall.
Fall Festivals and Events
August brings on two of Anguilla’s most incredible festivals: Carnival and the Anguilla Summer Festival. The Anguilla Summer Festival is an 11 day long extravaganza complete with parades, pageants, costumes, live music, competitions, and more. Carnival is the highlight of the Anguilla Summer Festival, celebrated around the world. People engage in costumed revelry, traditionally before renouncing indulgences for Lent. Anguilla holds their Carnival during August, while other countries tend to hold theirs before Lent around Easter.
Not many events happen during September or October. However, the Tranquility Jazz Festival held on the second week of each November is a fun and lively event.
If you enjoy a laidback, fuss free vibe, the fall season can be a lovely time to visit Anguilla.
