A warm and welcoming island destination tucked away in the northern Caribbean. Embraced by unrivaled white beaches and breathtaking turquoise seas, Anguilla is casual and easy, a unique blend of high style and low-key elegance, and the best of the good life set to a slow and casual island tempo. Anguilla is an experience that captivates visitors and creates friend- ships and memories that last a lifetime. Submerged in decades of rich histo- ry and teeming with exciting local cul- ture, the family friendly island of Anguilla is proud to recommence its wildly popu- lar premier Summer Prix Fixe & Beyond offerings. Crafted as Anguilla's answer to the "all–inclusive," the island-wide savings will offer visitors access to unique three-course menus at the island's finest restaurants, as well as incomparable savings at select resorts, hotels and villas. A relaxed state of mind often provides room for innovative solutions. If you are looking for a meeting space where your team can work hard, rejuvenate and think clearly, look no further than Anguilla. Anguilla can provide you and your business team with an elite environment that is equal parts business and pleasure. Spacious luxury villas, dedicated meeting spaces, an 18-hole championship golf course, state-of-the-art audio visual equipment, business support services, private chefs, catering and a place to relax at the end of your sessions; Anguilla is perfect for small high-level board and strategic meetings, high-end groups and top tier incentive programs. Anguilla's venues can accommodate from 20-100 persons in a variety of con- figurations. Hotels and resorts offer meeting services and provide concierge assistance. Conference attendees will have the luxury of being just steps away from some of the most magnificent beaches in the world when meetings are over for the day. Anguilla has 33 pristine beaches and over 12 miles of stunning, white powder sand and tranquil waters ranging from aquamarine to cobalt blue. Beaches of all kinds, from the long, gentle shoreline of Rendezvous Bay perfect for strolling, to the colorful beach bars that rest on the blinding white sands of Shoal Bay. The village beach of Sandy Ground welcomes fun first — home to dancing, parties and boat racing, and secluded coves such as Little Bay offer pictur- esque romance. The open and wild feel- ing of Junk's Hole is home to the lone Palm Grove barbecue, and the bright fish- ing boats in Island Harbour give visitors the opportunity to witness the fishermen and the sailors of Anguilla at work. The deep plush sands of Meads Bay are home to some of the most elegant dining and hotel options and a soft rolling wave. The most interesting pelagic experi- ences in Anguilla are for the scuba diver. The island is home to seven marine parks including Dog Island, Prickly Pear, Seal Island Reef System, Little Bay, Sandy Island, Shoal Bay Harbour Reef System, and Stoney Bay Marine Park. Offerings include wall dives, ledge dives, nine wreck dives, both new and historical. A valid passport (with at least six months before expiration) and return and onward tickets are required for all visitors to Anguilla. Green card holders must have a valid green card and valid passport from their country of origin. Clayton J. Lloyd International Airport is easily accessible by air, through the main gateways Puerto Rico, St. Maarten/Martin, Antigua and St. Kitts. WHO YOU GONNA CALL?
