One of the special things about Anguilla is that large aeroplanes don’t fly here – you have to transfer by smaller planes, speed-boats or ferry. Travellers embrace this stage of the journey, knowing it means they will be arriving in an off-the-beaten-track destination.
You will transfer to Anguilla via safe and convenient air or sea “bridge” from St Maarten (SXM), Puerto Rico (SJU), or Antigua (ANU), three of the Caribbean’s best-serviced and most reasonable destinations to fly into from North America, South America and Europe.

Scheduled or charter boat services from St Maarten’s Princess Julianna Airport are plentiful. The 25 minute boat trip is enjoyable and there are lots of providers to choose from including: Calypso Charters, GB Express, Gotcha, SeaPro and Funtime.
Jumping on the Local Ferry is a popular way to arrive, especially for those familiar with the island and/or interested in catching a glimpse of the French side of St. Martin. Simply grab a taxi from Princess Juliana Airport and ask for the Anguilla Ferry Port in Marigot – a 10 to 20 minute drive (depending on traffic). Ferries to Anguilla depart every 45 minutes. You won’t get VIP service and ferries vary – but you will be travelling like the locals do!
