Prettiest Beach in the World!

This pristine white nearly deserted beach should be voted as one of the prettiest beaches in the world. A little hard to get too but, worth the trouble.

This island is absolutely beautiful! I'm so happy I finally made it over to Anegada, it was DEFINITELY worth it! Hardly any people and no trash seen the entire time we were there! Pristine white sand beaches and miles and miles of turquoise water...the perfect place for a relaxing beach day!

Anegada is a beautiful island with beautiful beaches and exceptional snorkeling and diving! The lobsters are a definite can't miss as well when it comes to dining! However, if you are traveling with teens I wouldn't recommend staying very long as there is basically nothing else to do. We spent most of the day at the Anegada Beach Club and... More

Family friendly, fun, beautiful... Warm waters, amazing stars, and pretty sweet places to stay, and eat. Anegada is just what you need! A little warning: you may want to bring some food down, not much stores. But thats nothing to stress about. Anegada is a beautiful stress free island :) ...

I was glad we went to Anegada, but I would not go back again. The island is just ok to see. We got there about 10-11 in the morning and went ashore. We wanted to snorkel on the island cause we heard it was great to look at. We rented a scooter from a lady on the island. She did... More

I had heard so much about it, but was very disappointed. It was not what i expected. I had been told ot was a marine park. Well, most of the coral was dead. Not worth snorkelling. The restaurant had a lot of tourists so the service was slow. There were a few large groups.

This is the best of all the virgin island, Spanish, US and British for its laid back chilled vibes. There is nothing rushed here everything comes in its own time, this is the place to kick back and relax, unwind and lose all your stress. Turn off your phone and tablet sit down your laptop and look at what nature... More

We loved the experience on a pretty deserted island. If you take the ferry, be prepared to be there all day. it was very beautiful. The best beaches in all of the British Virgin Islands. Just breath taking.
