Weather

When heading to the Caribbean, all most of us want is a bit of guaranteed sunshine so that we can laze on the beach and top up the tan.

This makes June the perfect time to visit Anguilla as the windy season is yet to begin in earnest, the seas are lovely and warm and the sun shines almost every day.

Though there is the chance of a few short showers, they’re unlikely to hang around and the sun will be back out before you know it.

Prices

The peak season in Anguilla lasts till around mid April, so by June almost all of the bars and restaurants will have dropped their prices ready for the low season.

As well as great value food and drink, visitors to Anguilla can also take advantage of lower prices experiences and activities, making for an even more memorable stay.

Crowds

Thanks to its white sandy beaches, crystal clear waters and great atmosphere, Anguilla is becoming increasingly popular with visitors from around the world.

However, in June the beaches are almost empty, the activities don’t need booking and most restaurants don’t require reservations, allowing visitors to samples the best cuisine the island has to offer.

Events

With fewer tourists on the island, you’ll find all of the events that take place in June have a distinctly local flavour, allowing you to get a real taste of Anguilla and life in the Caribbean.

On the 5th of the month, the island celebrates the Queen’s birthday. Usually marked by a boat race in Crocus Bay, the Queen’s birthday is a great opportunity for visitors to get involved with island life.

Apart from the boat race, June is a very laidback month in Anguilla, giving visitors plenty of time to explore the island, relax on the stunning beaches and sample the delicious Caribbean cuisine.
