A Glimpse into Anguilla’s Past

Anguilla’s history is as colorful as its sunsets. Originally inhabited by the Arawak-speaking Tainos, this serene island was named “Anguilla” by the French, meaning “eel,” due to its long, thin shape. Over the centuries, Anguilla has seen European colonization and has blossomed into a melting pot of cultures, each adding to the island’s unique charm.
