The climate of Anguilla (British overseas territories – United Kingdom)
Anguilla is located in the Caribbean to the north of St. Maarten and is part of the Leeward Islands. Anguilla has approximately 1400 inhabitants. The capital of Anguilla is The Valley and is situated close to Wallblake airport. Anguilla is one of the British overseas territories. Several small uninhabited islands and reefs are part of Anguilla. The most important ones are Anguillita, Dog Island, Prickly Pear Cays, Sandy Island, Scrub Island, Scilly Cay, Seal Island and Sombrero. Anguilla and St. Maarten are separated by the Anguilla Channel. Anguilla’s income is mostly generated by tourism and the banking system; the latter because of its favorable tax environment. Most of the tourists come here to enjoy the beautiful white palm tree beaches and the azure blue sea. Diving and snorkeling form the number one tourist activity.

Anguilla has a tropical monsoon climate which is greatly influenced by a trade wind. The island’s location in the Caribbean also has its influence on the climate. Temperatures are reasonably high all year round but because of the ever blowing trade wind very pleasant. Anguilla gets more than 3,000 hours of sun per year. The island gets quite a lot of rain, but showers often are short lived. On a yearly basis more than 1000 millimeters of rain falls. This causes humidity figures to be high. Anguilla is situated in an area with a high risk of tropical storms and hurricanes. During the 1990s a hurricane destroyed a large part of the island.
