About Anguilla...
(pronounced  Ann-gwill-ah)
(NOT Ann-geel-ah!!!)

Area Code (264)

 

This is the most northerly of the Leeward Islands, and it's name derives from its shape - that of an eel ("anguille" in French). The island stretches from north-east to south-west, with the highest elevation at Crocus Hill, 213 feet above sea level. It has several offshore islets, or "cays", and is fringed with more than thirty fine beaches.

Anguilla was colonised in 1650 by English settlers from St. Kitts, and has remained a British territory ever since.
