Anguilla is a British overseas Territory very much like Bermuda, Gibraltar and the BVI.

The island is 56 sq miles, 16 x 3 miles and has a population of 13,500.

For Saggita it is basically a beach stop. The island does not seem to have a rich or interesting history and appears to be very laid back. This was my first trip here and I apologize for not having more to share. Perhaps others will make contributions. Most of the pictures I posted are of Shoal Bay. Shoal Bay is on the Atlantic side with a surf sometimes difficult to enter while trying to put snorkel gear on. The sand here is stunningly white and powdery.

The Saggita anchors at a nice beach on leeward side and may be more suitable for those looking for calmer water. There are excellent beach bars on both.

Like your pics of Shoal Bay. At which beach does Sagitta anchor? Sailing on Sagitta in December 2014.

Great pictures Tim! Thanks for posting them. Love Anguilla. Really enjoy that stop on Sagitta.

Will be back there for a stay, in November.
