The Anguilla Channel (French: Canal d'Anguilla) is a strait in the Caribbean Sea. It separates the islands of Anguilla (a British Overseas Territory) in the north from Saint Martin (an Overseas collectivity of France) in the south.


A coral reef in the channel named Chris's Reef was discovered in 2009. It contains the remains of vehicles, which may have been destroyed by Hurricane Luis in 1995 and consequently placed into the reef for disposal.[1]
