Celebrate the 50th Anniversary of Anguilla with a Fifth Night Free at Four Seasons Resort and Residences Anguilla
Special activities this summer
Many people think the best time to visit Anguilla is in high season, December through Easter, but Anguilla aficionados choose to visit during the island’s spring and summer season, May through August. Savvy travellers love this time of year because not only will they experience wonderful weather, balmy sea breezes and the calmest waters, but also incredible rates and the most diverse and interesting cultural events and enjoyable local festivals - or "fetes" as they are known on the island.
This year is particularly rich in culture as islanders will celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the Anguilla Revolution, where the people of Anguilla revolted against and defeated the UK’s decision to put Anguilla into a federation with the islands of St Kitts and Nevis.
