dramatic modern

. * '''Rendezvous Bay.''' Yes, another mile of beautiful beach! The eastern part, along the salt pond, is undeveloped. A couple of beach bars on the western part offer refreshment. ''Access:'' On the main road, watch for a sign for Anguilla Great House at Willow Lane. Continue past the Great House entrance and park in the unpaved lot at the salt pond. * '''Shoal Bay West''' is a pleasant beach with a good view of St. Martins. Lined with villas in a dramatic modern style, the beach itself is often deserted. ''Access:'' Stay on the main road until the paving ends. Park next to the salt pond. The public access path is between two of the villas. * '''Little Bay''' can be the least or the most crowded of the beaches—it is so small that a yachtful of visitors can fill it up. This is a popular snorkeling area. Rocks near the shore offer the beginner a chance to see colorful little fishes, while better swimmers may glimpse sea turtles. ''Access:'' The adventurous can try to find the path that leads down the cliff that surrounds the beach. For the rest of us, go to Crocus Bay in The Valley and ask for Calvin at the tamarind tree. He will take you there in his motor boat, and can be trusted to come back for you at the agreed time. History Take some time to learn about the events that have shaped the island’s people. Few historic buildings survive, but you will find links to the past around the island; * '''Salt mining.''' For much of Anguilla’s history, extraction of salt by evaporation of sea water was a major industry. The Pumphouse at Sandy Ground, now a bar, housed the pumps that fed seawater to the salt pond. * '''Walleblake House.''' Built in 1785, it has been beautifully restored and is Anguilla's only surviving plantation house. The house, hidden behind a stone wall next to a church near the airport, is open for tours at irregular hours. * '''Heritage Collection Museum.''' On the road to the East End. If you'd like to dive into the island's history and cultural heritage further, be sure to visit the museum. It has a good collection of photographs, artifacts and documents from the prime days of the Arawak Indians till the present. The curator, Colville Petty, will meet you and orient you to the exhibits that tell of the often-difficult life on the island. Only if you ask, will he point out the picture of himself with other revolutionaries. If he piques your interest in the island's history, buy one of his books. ''Bless our Forebears'' is especially evocative of the trials that the people have endured. * '''Crocus Hill.''' At 213 feet above sea level, Crocus Hill is the highest point on the otherwise flat lands of Anguilla. On it, there are a few remains of the Old Court House. More importantly however, there's a great view from the top over the underlying bay, which is extra spectacular at sunset. On the way to Crocus Hill is The Old Valley, an area with a few unspectacular but locally important church buildings. A few old wooden houses also remain. Island Life At '''Island Harbour''' you can see local fishermen and sailors at work. On the road to West End, past the Sandy Ground roundabout, you may see a racing boat under construction, under a shed on the right side of the road. The boat races are major events, celebrating the return of workers from the cane fields of the Dominican Republic in the old days, and perhaps also the nautical skills of the smugglers of years past. Anguilla has many farms of corn, peas, tomatoes and other crops. To see, buy or learn about plants and animals in Anguilla one can visit The Department of Agriculture, located in The Valley, Anguilla. The Anguilla National Trust can provide information on Anguilla's environment and conducts tours. Its main task is to preserve Anguilla's natural environment, historic and cultural resources and archaeology. If you're interested in gardens, try the Hydroponic Farm and Organic Gardens, at CuisinArt Resort and Spa, West End Village or the Endangered Species Garden and Indigenous Local Plants Gardens at the Cap Juluca Resort. Birds The salt ponds, uplands and beaches provide habitat for a variety of birds. Stop by the National Trust office to buy ''A Guide to the Birds of Anguilla'', with color photos and maps of birding areas. Pelicans and brown boobies dive for fish along the beaches. Frigate birds glide high above. Ducks and wading birds can often be seen at the Sandy Ground salt pond. Even at your hotel, you may see hummingbirds among the flowering shrubs or the small bananaquit in the trees.
