More experienced and adventurous divers will enjoy Anguilla’s ship wreck dives. In the late 1980s, seven ships were towed to the north side of Anguilla and allowed to sink in 60 to 80 feet of water. The wrecks attract fish and other sea life, creating a marine playground for divers to explore.
The interior of Anguilla offers some attractions as well. Salt mining was once the island’s main industry, and a visit to the Old Salt Factory offers a look into the island’s past. Bird watchers will enjoy a visit to the old salt ponds, which are now home to several colorful winged species. Visitors can also tour the island’s only surviving plantation house, the Wallblake House, where all of the outbuildings – kitchen, stables and workers’ quarters – are still intact.
