The 35-square mile Caribbean island of Anguilla is officially ‘open for business’ once again and ready to welcome UK travellers. Subsequent to Hurricane Irma, which caused extensive damage with 185 MPH Category 5 winds just one month ago, the island has made a remarkable and robust recovery, although, there is still a long way to go. An estimated 30 small hotels, condominiums, guesthouses and private villas have already re-opened or plan to open ahead of the peak winter and Christmas season. The ATB has published a full list of island accommodation and restaurants with expected opening dates as a guide for visitors, tour operators and travel agents. Tourism businesses including a number of restaurants and car hire services, have reopened. Supermarkets are open and well provisioned, ready for those on self-catering and villa holidays. Many of the Island’s white sandy beaches have been cleared already, as have island roads. Phone and Internet access have been restored to most parts of the island and significant progress is being made on the complete restoration of the electricity grid. Water is available but remains on ration.
