Anguilla Businesses Open/Closing for low Season

The low season is upon us (between August – October) and, the question is “What do we do in Anguilla now?”. Around this time, the water is clearer, the sun is brighter and, you can still come and enjoy what the island has to offer – it’s really just when some businesses take a break…

Although this is known as the “off season”, you will still find that a number of restaunrants and small accommodations such as villas remain open. After all, life for the locals continues 24/7/365!

Here’s a list of businesses and their opening/closing dates and those that will remain open for the low season if you’re considering staying between August and October.
