Taking the ferry from Tortola is a lovely trip. Then, you land in Anegada..magical. The beaches are wonderful, great scuba diving and traveling on the inner parts of the island brings you to birds you will see no place else.

this northern most island is off the beaten path and will take some effort to get to. But the beaches, restaurants, and diving/snorkeling are marvelous.

Beach walker's dream. Miles of unspoiled and sparsely populated beaches to explore. Island has just the right amount of development to make for a great stay.

My husband and I had been to Anegada in May 2001 and couldn't wait to bring our kids there someday. The beach is every bit as amazing as it was 13 years prior, however, we were sad to see it was much more crowded and there were tours there . . . but, we were there Spring Break so it... More

The only activity is tourism, but the island is not well maintained, not very clean. The Big Bamboo restaurant enjoys a kind of exclusivity, but its best part is the beach close-by. The food itself was not really fresh, shrimps offering a "taste of fridge". All-in-all, Anegada island is not worth a visit. Better look at it from your boat.

I loved this Island!!! We went over for a day and it was the best day ever. There were 4 of us and we all rented scooters and traveled the Island. Went to the Big Bamboo and had an awesome lobster lunch and went to Cow Wreck beach bar for drinks. I would like to spend a whole week there!

After arriving on our sailboat, we enjoyed a wonderful dinner of lobster on the beach at one of the local places. The next day we rented a truck and drove all around the island. We went to several different beaches with beach bars/restaurants. Great places and I wanted to spend more time there just hanging and seeing what kind of... More

Anegada is so beautiful. Cow Wreck beach is so beautiful and unspoiled. You can walk the beach and not see another person. There are decent shops for souvenirs near the mooring balls/dinghy dock. Neptune/Jan's is not to be missed. Stock up on baked goods and have a delicious meal there.

Charming people and nice eating, lovely beaches and clean,fresh,salty water. Lobster is good, but they can give you a nice meal with fish as well.
