There aren’t any buses, trains, or other on-island public transportation in Anguilla. Most residents bike, walk or own cars.

For your convenience, we can arrange a luxury car or van service to collect you from the airport or ferry and drive you in comfort to Long Bay Villas and chauffeur you to beaches, restaurants, and sites throughout your stay. For weddings and corporate events, group transportation options are available.

If you prefer to drive yourselves, we can arrange a rental car, jeep, or SUV which can be picked up at the ferry terminal or airport.

Anguilla taxis are best for short trips as fares can be expensive and there are extra charges for after 6 pm pick-ups, additional people, and baggage. All taxis are registered, the rates are set, and you can confirm your fare in advance with the dispatcher.

What are the legal requirements for driving in Anguilla?

Anguilla has one main road that connects one end of the island to the other, with many smaller roads feeding into it. It takes about 30 minutes to drive its length. Driving is on the left-hand side of the road, and the speed limit is 30 mph. To drive, you must be 18 years old, show a valid driver’s license from your resident country, and obtain an Anguilla driver’s license. One can be procured for $20 US from your rental car company. Our concierge is happy to assist you with car rentals. You’ll quickly notice that most businesses and accommodations don’t have detailed street addresses, often just listing their location as “The Valley” or referring to the bay or road on which they are located.

WiFi is available throughout our estate. The villas also have a landline phone for local calls, and we can arrange local cell phones for your use while on the island or recommend services through your carrier. Most everyone carries a cell phone, and the most common area code is 264. Whatsapp by Facebook is a very popular way to communicate on the island.
