This dry limestone stone island is the most northerly of the Leeward Islands, located between the Caribbean Sea and the Atlantic Ocean. It stretches, from northeast to southwest, for approximately 16 miles (26 km). The highest point is 213 feet above sea level, and there are no rivers or streams, not even a saline pond.
The name of the island was given by its discoverer the French explorer Pierre Laudonnaire back in 1556. Except for a brief period of independence, Anguilla has remained a British colony. Today Anguilla elects its own assembly and its own president to handle internal affairs, while a British governor is responsible for public administration, police, judicial affairs and foreign affairs.

The government carefully regulates the expansion of the island to protect the natural resources and its beauty. Anguilla presents high quality services, a peaceful environment and very friendly people.
