I took a private place here with my husband and kids.. there is not much to see but the natural beauty of this very small island is worth the trip and the cost of the plane was relatively inexpensive.

Cow Wreck Beach and The Big Bamboo are a must! The island is unspoiled and the residents are very friendly. Be sure to find a piece of drift wood to make a sign to hang at the Big Bamboo!

This is a great island to visit if you just want a quiet, secluded place to hang out on the beach. There is very little to do there except relax and take in the views. If that's what you're looking for, this is the place!

New restaurant (opened december 2014) Excellent food, menu, service, setting!! Located in the harbor with mooring balls. They have a private dinghy dock infront of the restaurant. The menu consists of 5 star recipe options and the chef's preparation and presentation are in the same category. The portions are generous in the appetizers, entrees and desserts. You won't be disappointed.

We spent an overnight on the boat here. It was hands down my family's favorite spot. So chill and relaxed. Everywhere we went we were surrounded by peaceful spectacular beaches. Don't miss this spot if you ever have the opportunity. We would go back for a week and I just know it would be the most relaxing week of my... More

We were excited about traveling to Anegada to explore the islands but we were a bit disappointed by the high winds blowing sand all about as we made our way to Loblolly Bay The coral was enjoyable to swim about but strong winds made it a bit uncomfortable during our stay! Better luck for better weather on our next trip!

We just returned from a sailing vacation to the BVI's. We were reluctant to sail up to Anegada, but we are now so glad we did. It was the highlight of our trip. From the grilled lobster on the beach, to a scooter ride (first time ever!) to the north side of the island to snorkel and sight-see, we could... More

Anegada is a coral atoll which you reach by sailing on a good day (don't try it if the forecast is bad.) For a while there is nothing to see and you hope you are on course. Then suddenly the tops of trees appear. The channel through the reef is a little tricky - watch those red and green buoys... More

Lots of beaches to walk and collect shells. Restaurants where outdoor dining is a must, no need for shoes, just order your reef lobster earlier in the day.
