Anguilla Weather

We’ve been visiting the island for more than 30 years and have experienced weather in Anguilla every month of the year. If the Bird of Paradise luxury villa was available, I wouldn’t hesitate coming any time of the year. There are no extremes in temperature and no rain as one would, for instance, experience in Florida during the summer. Below is a summary of statistical information based on averages by month for the past 5 years. Also included is information on rates during the different times of the year and information on tourism for each month.
