Getting to Anguilla

Are you yearning for a tranquil tropical getaway? You should consider packing up and heading to the picturesque paradise of Anguilla. Nestled in the Caribbean, this idyllic island boasts pristine beaches, crystal-clear waters, and a laid-back atmosphere that makes it the perfect destination for a dream vacation. To help you embark on this unforgettable journey, here’s a guide on getting to Anguilla and making the most of your time in this island haven.

Step 1: Choose Your Route

Anguilla is a small island, and the most common way to reach it is by flying. The Clayton J. Lloyd International Airport (AXA) is the island’s main airport, receiving daily flights from St. Martin, Puerto Rico, Miami, and other island charters, including two flights per day direct from Miami. When planning your trip, consider flying into neighboring islands like St. Maarten or Puerto Rico, and then take a short connecting flight or boat ride to Anguilla; the shared water taxi from SXM on St. Martin is only a 25-minute ride. Alternatively, you can opt for private charters for a more personalized and seamless travel experience.

Step 2: Book Your Flight

Several major airlines operate flights to nearby islands, offering convenient connections to Anguilla. Explore options from carriers like American Airlines, Delta, and Caribbean Airlines. Be sure to compare prices, flight durations, and layover times to find the best itinerary for your preferences. Aim for flexibility in your travel dates to secure the most affordable rates.

Step 3: Ferry & Water Taxi Connections

If you choose to fly into St. Maarten, you can catch a ferry to Anguilla from the French side of St. Marin. The ferry is located about 30 minutes from the airport. The ride is a scenic experience, providing breathtaking views of the Caribbean Sea. Multiple ferry operators run services between St. Maarten and Anguilla, ensuring accessibility for travelers.

We recommend all guests use the shared water taxi which departs from a private dock near the St. Martin airport and will get them on the island in the fastest and most comfortable way. Our guest services team will be happy to book this for you in advance.

Step 4: Plan Your Stay

Sample local cuisine at beachside restaurants and immerse yourself in the vibrant atmosphere of Anguilla.
