Fantasic Experience

A fantasic Island a bit off the beaten path. Be sure to rent scooters and go explore! It gives the freedom to go at your own pace wherever you want.

Loved loved Anegada . So much so , it's next on our list of must stay places . We arranged a flight with VI Airlinks , which took 10 min to reach the island as opposed to an hour by ferry. This island is a must see !

Went bone fishing with a friend and a guide named Kevin. My first time. One of the coolest fishing experiences ever. Our guide was pleasant, courteous and extremely knowledgeable. Not only about bone fishing but also the island and BVI. Great time and would look to do it every time I visit BVI. Thanks Kevin

Beautiful Island only a few hours (depending on the wind) sailing from Road Town. On the other side of the Island there is a gorgeous beach with cabins which you can rent. Also nice to rent mopets on this Island and drive around from one beach bar to the other.

In normal weather conditions departing from North Sound, it is a single tack and approximately 12 nautical miles. Well marked but very shallow channel not good for deep draft vessels. We marked 5.5 feet at points. There are plenty of moorings for $30 per night. Fees are collected at your boat. Extremely limited provisions so stock up before you go.... More

We took a ferry daytrip (expensive) to Anegada from Spanish Town as our charter company refused to let us sail there. Sure parts of the Island - Loblolly Bay and Cowreck Bay are idyllic - but much of the rest looks like a junkyard. The Settlement looks like a shanty town. I understand the problem of disposing of old cars,... More

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.
