Jayden:As you can see in the photo, that's one room with private pool and I guess hat's for hundreds of million if you want to live there. One person actually bout one for 84.6 million!!! It is the most well rated hotel in the island. it's almost $1,400 to $10,000 per night if you book to e private room but you bet on the best quality. It is scattered all across the beach. There are normal rooms that has king size or twin beds and private ocean view terraces. There are suits with private pools, and there is private pool villa that gives you private ocean viewed pool with two king beds. looks like a perfect honeymoon place for a million air lol.

Jayden:you can't s crayfish here. Anguilla Crayfish are nothing like the crayfish you’d see in New Orleans. First off, they are huge – I am talking prawn size. Crayfish are better than lobster if you ask any of locals, and after having a plate of them ourselves we agree they are pretty darn good. Expect to pay $40+ for a plate of crayfish. There is no official season for crayfish just cross your fingers and hope the restaurant has them. Crayfish will be on all of the best restaurants in Anguilla menus, and I highly recommend you it

Jayden:For one of Anguilla’s top activities, spend the day on a sailboat with Tradition Sailing. The most popular trip sails to Little Bay which is only accessible by boat. Jump off the boat and snorkel in the bay and once back on board lobster rolls and drinks are ready!

Sandy Island
Jayden:One of the best things to do in Anguilla is to make a visit to the one of a kind Sandy Island. A $10 boat ride away from Sandy Ground lies the magical island called Sandy Island. A name that is very fitting as the only thing on the island a bunch of sand and restaurant that serves up some fresh seafood and ice-cold drinks. I highly suggest spending the entire day at Sandy Island and make sure to try their grilled Caribbean lobster & Anguilla crayfish.

The island's history

Jayden:READ FOR IFOS ABOUT THIS HISTORY ARTICLE. THIS MUSEUM IS NOT RELATED TO THIS ARTICLE. Long before the arrival of Christopher Columbus in the Caribbean, Anguilla had been settled by Arawakan-speaking Indians who called it Malliouhana. They were originally from the Orinoco River basin of South America and arrived on the island about 2000 BCE. Anguilla was colonized in 1650 by British settlers from Saint Kitts and thereafter remained a British territory, administered as part of the Leeward Islands colony. The British did not encounter any Arawaks on the island, but in 1656 a raid by Indians from one of the neighbouring islands wiped out their settlement. The early years were difficult for the colonists. In 1666 a French expedition attacked the island, and in 1688 a joint Irish-French attack forced most of the colonists to seek refuge on Antigua. During the latter part of the 17th century, the poor yield from tobacco (the island’s principal cash crop) and from cotton created economic hardship. However, in response to the increasing demand for sugar in Europe, the settlers began producing sugarcane, using enslaved Africans, in the early 18th century. Sugar, which yielded better returns than tobacco or cotton, transformed an economy made up primarily of European small farmers into one in which the labouring class was composed mostly of African slaves working on sugar estates. Anguilla’s economic and social development was frequently disrupted by European political conflicts that spilled over into the Caribbean. The French attacked the island in 1745 but were repelled by the local militia. They attacked again in 1796, causing much destruction, but were eventually forced to withdraw with great loss. Conditions in Anguilla were influenced not only by European conflicts but also by political expediency. The British government thought it convenient to have Saint Kitts make laws for Anguilla and therefore created a legislative union between them (1825), although the Anguillan freeholders who owned the sugar estates protested strongly. Anguilla was ruled directly from Saint Kitts. Britain ended slavery in the colonies in 1834, and over the next few years many of the plantation owners sold their land to former slaves and returned to the United Kingdom. The lack of any meaningful economic development on the island heightened Anguillan discontent with the union. In 1872 the islanders petitioned the British government to dissolve the union and administer the island directly from Britain. The petition was ignored, and in 1882 a British Federal Act united Saint Kitts, Nevis, and Anguilla as a constituent part of the Leeward Islands Federation. During the early 1890s, Anguillans endured much suffering when prolonged droughts led to severe famine. Such conditions and the Great Depression of the 1920s and ’30s—which affected the entire Caribbean but hit poverty-stricken Anguilla particularly hard—caused many Anguillan workers to migrate to the Dominican Republic to work in the sugarcane fields. Others found work in Aruba and Curaçao. A series of labour disturbances throughout the British West Indies in the 1930s spurred the creation of a royal commission (popularly known as the Moyne Commission) to examine social and economic conditions in the islands. The commission advocated political and social reforms, and its findings hastened the democratization of the political process. Anguilla was granted universal adult suffrage in 1952. Further changes occurred in 1956—with the dissolution of the Leeward Islands Federation and the designation of Saint Kitts, Nevis, and Anguilla as a crown colony—and in 1958, when the three islands formed a single political unit within the West Indies Federation. After the federation’s collapse in 1962, the British government attempted a federation of the smaller territories; when that, too, failed, most of the islands were granted new constitutions that provided for statehood in association with Britain. In 1967 Anguilla became part of an associated state with Saint Kitts and Nevis, again contrary to the wishes of Anguilla, which ejected the Saint Kitts police, set up its own government, and proclaimed an independent republic. Negotiations for a peaceful resolution of the conflict failed, and British troops intervened in March 1969. British rule was restored and a temporary commissioner was installed. Subsequently, the Anguilla Act of July 1971 placed the island directly under British control. A new constitution in 1976 gave the island a ministerial system of government and provided a larger measure of internal autonomy under the Crown. In 1980 Anguilla formally became a dependent territory (from 2002, overseas territory) of the United Kingdom, and a new constitution became effective in 1982; it was amended in 1990. Anguilla has developed into a stable parliamentary democracy with a growing economy, a consequence of massive injections of foreign capital, mainly from the United States, during the early years of the 21st century.
