GENERAL DESCRIPTION.
--------------------
ANGUILLA LIES IN THE CARIBBEAN SEA AND DERIVES ITS NAME
FROM THE FRENCH WORD FOR EEL, "ANGUILLE", PARALLELING THE
ISLAND'S LONG, NARROW SHAPE. IT IS THE NORTHERNMOST OF THE
LEEWARD ISLAND CHAIN AND INCLUDES SCRUB, SEAL AND DOG
ISLANDS AND THE PRICKLY CAYS.

ANGUILLA'S 91 SQ KM IS RELATIVELY FLAT WITH ITS HIGHEST
POINT ON CROCUS HILL, 65M. THE CORAL AND LIMESTONE ISLAND
IS COVERED WITH SPARSE, DRY WOODLANDS AND SURROUNDED BY
WHITE SAND BEACHES. MOST OF THE LAND IS SUITABLE FOR
GRAZING BEING TOO POOR FOR AGRICULTURAL USE. THERE ARE NO
RIVERS ON ANGUILLA. A FEW SALT PONDS PROVIDE COMMERCIAL
QUANTITIES OF SALT.
