I arrived at Anegada Island via sailing flotilla (5 boats from Nanny Cay in Tortola on a 6-day excursion). After anchoring among the rocks (all the mooring balls were already occupied), we fired up the dinghy and motored into the marina. Several of us decided to take a shuttle to the beach, but had a few minutes to meander around... More

If you don't like to snorkel I don't think I would recommend you making the trip. On the other hand if you do take a cab to Loblolly Bay. The shallow waters of the bay allow you to see some great fish in living coral structure and the security of the less experienced snorkeler. Very limited thatch umbrellas so be... More

Anegada was beautiful and such a peaceful stop on our trip! The waters are calm and the beaches are white! We took a taxi across the island (sat in the back of a truck to be precise) and it was so great to be on such a slow paced island with few residents. Everyone we met was so sweet!

Lil Bit Scooter Rentals could have told us to go East to the beaches, on the paved roads, instead of sending us West via the sand roads. Everyone of us riding double wrecked multiple times in the deep, deep sand. One wreck resulting in cracked ribs. Rent a jeep or only drive East.

Beautiful! Go! Big Bamboo! Snorkel! I want to go back and stay on the island. We to Fly BVI for a day trip there. The pilot was professional and gave us tips on what to do. A lobster lunch was included and the bar is a must see. The color of the water can only be seen-pictures do not do... More

This island may have 200 residents. Many great restaurants, swimming, fishing, sailing and SCUBA. Difficult to get to. One ferry and an airstrip.

Stunning beaches of white sand! Rent a jeep to get around and discover all the "hidden" jewels! Expect to meet donkeys and goats on the road! Lunch at Anegada Beach Club is awesome!!!!!

Always wanted to do Bone Fishing so when I found myself in the British Virgin Islands a little local research turned up Kevin. He picked me up from the ferry from Tortola and we got started. Weather conditions weren't favourable but we pressed on. Ever been caught in a topical storm with a great big smile on your face? This... More

Off the beaten path. Definitely different than other BVI stops. Decent snorkeling at Loblolly Beach.
