Best Time to Visit Anguilla
From a weather perspective, Anguilla generally has great weather all year around. If you are hurricane and storm paranoid, then you shouldn’t be visiting Anguilla from September to November.
Generally things get quiet and places will close in the September and October timeframe so those are really the times that would be least recommended.
If money is no issue, visit anytime between November and August, with mid-December through March or so being peak season. To reduce expenses, visit Anguilla after the northern hemisphere winter – say April through August, or visit November through mid-December, which is what I would recommend if you are coming from someplace cold.
Rain storms are very quick and not much rain falls on Anguilla in general.
