The Valley, Anguilla, July 19, 2018 - The Anguilla Tourist Board (ATB) is pleased to announce that as of Monday, July 16th, 2018, the Anguilla-St. Maarten Ferry Terminal is open for operation. The port of entry is housed on St. Maarten in close proximity to the Princess Juliana International Airport.
Passengers travelling through this facility are reminded of the US$5.00 Passenger Levy that is charged to every guest who departs from the Blowing Point Ferry Terminal destined for the Anguilla St. Maarten Ferry Terminal.
The ATB wishes to thank the Ministry of Tourism, Charter Boat Owners, the Government of St. Maarten and other Dutch authorities for the diligence, cooperation, time and energy dedicated to getting the facility ready for operation. They also express their appreciation to all private sector partners for their patience and understanding as both the Dutch and Anguillan authorities worked diligently to re-open the Anguilla St. Maarten Ferry Terminal.
Tucked away in the northern Caribbean, Anguilla is a shy beauty with a warm smile. A slender length of coral and limestone fringed with green, the island is ringed with 33 beaches, considered by savvy travelers and top travel magazines, to be the most beautiful in the world.
Anguilla lies just off the beaten path, so it has retained a charming character and appeal. Yet because it can be conveniently reached from two major gateways: Puerto Rico and St, Martin, and by private air, it’s a hop and a skip away.
