Anguilla is just 16 miles long and 3 miles wide. A single main road runs through the center of the island connecting Anguilla from end-to-end. It takes approximately 30 minutes to travel the entire island length. Small feeder roads connect the bays, coves, villages and points of interest to this conduit.
Driving is on the left, but most rental cars have steering wheels on the left-hand side. The speed limit is 30 mph.
