Anegada is the only coral island in the BVI and well worth a visit. We usually sail our boat and anchor just outside the harbor since our draft exceeds the depth limit of the channel and the anchorage inside. We also usually rent a car for a day to tour the entire island, including the massive flock of flamingos in... More

Spent two nights on a mooring in Anegada and had a great time. We had the requisite lobster dinner at the Anegada Reef Hotel and on also took a taxi to Loblolly Bay and had lunch at Big Bamboo. If the weather cooperates (we had a memorable trip on the return) a trip to Anegada is worth it.

Love this beach. Be careful of the thorns if you go too far from the beaten path. So peaceful & relaxing here.

Great anchorage, nothing else worth seeing. Can get rough if windy, not a crossing to be done until you have your sea legs. Both restaurants fine, friendly staff and good food. Scooter rental fun for getting off the boat, but nothing much to see.

What a spectacular island. The best beaches for snorkeling, walking, and exploring. Dinner and dancing at the beach was awesome.

Many of beaches in Caribbean islands are for fun and exciting. However, this place is just for relaxing with quiet atmosphere. What I could see in this island was just hearty people, beautiful white-sand beaches, and quiet time without any crowd. I still could not believe that this island was not commercialized so much.

On a perfect Caribbean day we sailed out from Virgin Gorda's North Sound to Anegada Island, and anchored for the night just offshore from the Anegada Reef Hotel. We'd spent the night at this hotel on a previous visit, so we knew exactly what we wanted for dinner: fresh-caught lobster, split open with a machete and char-grilled on a row... More

Nothing to do but relax & eat lobster. The sheer remoteness is the attraction. Cow wreck is the place to be. Chill out!
