Best Times to Visit Anguilla

The best time to visit Anguilla is between May and August, when you stand the best chance of getting a good package deal and also avoiding the worst of the hurricane season (which generally runs from June 1 to November 30). Hotel prices are low from September to October, but selection is sparse – many properties close down during these months. The most expensive time to visit is from the early winter until spring when the weather is ideal.

December-April

Anguilla's peak season kicks off in mid-December and lasts until mid-April; this is also when the flight deals diminish and the hotel rates skyrocket. But the weather vouches for the influx of tourists with infrequent rain and average high temperatures in the 80s.

Key Events:

May-August

The weather is a bit more humid at this time, and you'll see the rainfall pick up, especially with the start of hurricane season. But this is a prime time for spendthrifts: Hotel rates can drop as much as 50 percent.

Key Events:

 
September-November

You'll get an outstanding room deal in the fall; that is, if you can find a hotel that's still open for business. Many of them close down from September through October (as do the choicest restaurants), so you might want to hold off until November if you're looking to travel during this season. The average temperature is a pleasant 80 degrees Fahrenheit, but Anguilla is in the heavy throes of hurricane season and you can expect a good amount of rain, especially in October.

Key Events:

  • Tranquility Jazz Festival (November)
