Anguilla (pop: 8,960, 1992 census) is a small island, about 35 miles square - 16 miles long by 4 miles at its widest points., and the most northerly of the Leeward Islands. The island is low lying and, unlike its larger sisters, it is not volcanic but of coral formation. It is arid, covered with low scrub and has few natural resources. However, it has excellent beaches and superb diving and snorkeling, protected by the coral reefs. The island’s name is the Spanish word for ‘eel’, a reference to its long, narrow shape. Its Carib name was Malliouhana. The people of Anguilla, predominantly of African descent but with some traces of Irish blood, are very friendly and helpful and it is one of the safest islands in the Caribbean.
