The spring season is the climax of Anguilla’s busy season, filled with fun events, lovely weather, and perfect water conditions for all kinds of activities. Read on more below to find all the things do in Anguilla in the Caribbean to get started on planning your Caribbean spring holiday on Anguilla!
Spring Fishing and Water Sports
Anguilla enjoys warmer water temperatures and weather than elsewhere in the world, especially during winter and spring. This means that while the rest of the world is still dethawing from the cold of winter, Anguilla is a fantastic place to play on the sand and in the water.
Fishing, snorkeling, and scuba diving are particularly popular during this time of year, though kayaking, stand up paddleboarding, traversing obstacles at the Aqua Park, and sunset cruises are fun as well. While snorkeling, diving, or fishing, you’ll see species like mackerel, snook, tarpon, yellowfin tuna, lady fish, barracuda, and sailfish.
Check out locales like Shoal Bay, Rendezvous Bay, Crocus Bay, Little Bay, Maundays Bay, and Meads Bay. Charter and rental companies such as Nature Boy, Junior’s Glass Bottom Boat, Traditional Sailing Charters, Liquid Glow (glow in the dark kayaking), Scuba Shack, and Gotcha! Garfield’s Sea Tours are great places to start as well. It’s definitely one of the best things do in Anguilla in the Caribbean during the spring.
Spring Festivals and Events
Some of Anguilla’s most spectacular events take place during spring. Each March, the island draws reggae artists and enthusiasts from near and far for one of Anguilla’s best kept secrets: the Moonsplash Reggae Festival. The weekend long event is hosted by reggae legend and Anguillan local Bankie Banx and his reggae artist son Omari Banks, at their family run music venue and bar the Dune Preserve.
Festival Del Mar is another great event on Anguilla. Every Easter weekend, the town of Island Harbour comes together to celebrate Anguilla’s connection with the sea through seafood cooking competitions, parades, boat regattas, live music, and more during your Caribbean spring holiday on Anguilla.
In the late spring during the month of May, Anguilla celebrates its national sport of sailing with the annual Anguilla Regatta. Local and visiting sailors use their superior sailing skills to navigate their way around the island in record time in an exciting race.
