When to Visit

Anguilla enjoys a tropical climate with warm temperatures year-round, making it an attractive destination at any time. However, certain periods offer distinct advantages depending on your preferences.

  • High Season (December to April): This is the most popular time to visit, as the weather is sunny and dry, perfect for beach activities and water sports. Temperatures during this period are pleasantly warm, and the island is bustling with events and activities. However, this is also the peak tourist season, so early booking is recommended.
  • Shoulder Season (May to August): Visiting during the shoulder season offers a balance of good weather and fewer tourists. Temperatures remain warm, and while there may be occasional showers, they are usually brief and followed by sunshine. This is a great time for travelers seeking a more relaxed atmosphere and better deals on accommodations. The island is still lively, and most attractions and restaurants are open.
  • Low Season (September to November): The low season in Anguilla is characterized by higher humidity and a greater chance of rain, including the possibility of hurricanes. For those who don’t mind the weather variability, it can be a peaceful time to enjoy the island’s beauty without the crowds, though businesses may have reduced hours, and some hotels may be closed.
