If it swims, it may make it onto a plate! This festival celebrates the island’s seafaring heritage and all things from the sea - in all shapes and sizes!  


Of course there will be plenty of the infamous lobster Anguilla is known for on the grill! 

Seafood culinary competition categories include best soup, salad, local dish, along with best roasted and grilled seafood. 

Festival del Mar features traditional traditional cooking and culinary competitions (seafood recipes only!), and activities include swimming races, volleyball competitions, fishing tournaments, crab races on the beach, boat racing and lots more.


The location is the fishing village of Island Harbour on the eastern shore which has been untouched by tourism development and still maintains its local vibe.

Sponsored jointly by the community of Island Harbour, the Anguilla Tourist Board and the Ministry of Youth & Culture, Festival Del Mar serves a dual purpose, providing locals the opportunity to celebrate the islands history with generations to come, and offering visitors a window into Anguilla's unique cultural traditions.

Happy Travels,
