ANGUILLA, BWI – Anguilla anticipates a robust 2015 winter season by enticing travelers to experience not only its 33 pristine, powder-white beaches, but also a range of new additions for the season. The re-opening of the famed Malliouhana Resort & Spa has placed Anguilla in the forefront of the global conversation, while 2015 will bring more exciting tourism development news. Special offers by various hotels, resorts, villas and restaurants on island, as well as intriguing, authentic events all create great reasons to choose Anguilla for that special winter getaway.
Moonsplash Music Festival, Festival del Mar and The Anguilla Lit Fest: A Literary Jollification offer three great reason for visitors to come to the island and experience “Tranquility Wrapped in Blue.”
The 25th Annual Moonsplash Music Festival will take place March 27-29 under the full moon on gorgeous Rendezvous Bay.
