We had fun on Anegada. Rented a car and spent a couple of nights and went from one end to the other and back again. Great beaches and of course LOBSTER

Literally my favorite place to go in the entire world. It is paradise defined. Pick any beach and you could walk forever before running into another person.

We did a day trip from Road Town - you have to wake up early for the ferry and it's a long day but worth it. The beaches are stunning and snorkeling is good. It's a very quiet island which can be enjoyed on a scooter. We recommend Loblolly Bay Beach for snorkeling and the Anegada Beach Club for lunch.... More

The passage to Anegada is absolutely lovely. A bit different than the rest of the islands and well worth the trip. Loblolly Bay is a must do. Don't forget your bug spray if you dine ashore.

If you like to sail, then make the hike out to Anagada. Don't miss snorkeling and then dining on the beach at Anagada Reef Hotel and having lobster that was caught that day. Be sure to call ahead and reserve a lobster!

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.
