Getting Around Anguilla
Cars are the main means of transport, with driving on the left-hand side of the road, as in England. Although speed limits rarely exceed 30 miles per hour and traffic moves slowly, it doesn’t take long to get anywhere due to the islands smaller size.
Taxi service is available but can be costly. Taxi service is unmetered, with set rates published in tourist guides. In addition to regular transport, taxis often offer island tours lasting several hours. All fares must be paid in cash. There is no public transport, such as bus or rail systems, since there isn’t enough need. However, Anguilla’s roads are better maintained than on many Caribbean islands.
Ferries offer transport from Anguilla to other islands. The ferry from Blowing Point to Marigot, St. Martin, known to the locals as the Haddad Express, runs all day on the half hour and into the night. With no reservations required, taking the ferry is simple and inexpensive. Remember if you travel to other islands via ferry service you must bring along your passport as you will be passing through immigration.
Other means of transport include bikes, mopeds, and walking. Because off the territory’s small land mass and flatter terrain, these methods make more sense on Anguilla than on many other Caribbean islands.
