Celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Anguilla Revolution with colourful parades, walking tours of historical sites, and vibrant street festivals. At the Resort, savour a traditional Anguillan barbecue at Bamboo Bar & Grill while listening to Caribbean-style music performed by locals.

Or charter a boat helmed by one of our experienced captains. Follow the exciting action of the island's annual sailboat races from the best possible position – right on the water – and with the best possible guide to explain the race rules. 

Fourth of July Festivities:

Parade of Troupes: August 11
Release your inner Carmen Miranda at the colourful Parade of Troupes, a feather-filled dance around The Valley, Anguilla's capital. Or watch the hundreds of participating Troupes among the locals and get your photo taken with your favourite costume.
