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.

I stayed for 2 days. Went to Cow Wreck and Lolly Bay. Lolly is the better snorkeling spot. You can rent snorkel gear and standup boards at Cow Wreck. Standups and kayaks should be used with caution because of the winds and reefs. It was windy and rough and it is my understanding the island is windy quite often. The... More

If you are planning a trip to the BVI, be sure to plan at least part of your stay on Anegada. My favorite trip (we live in the BVI and go to Anegada for occassional get away weekends) was with my visiting family - Son and his family along with daughter-in-law's parents. Our grandson was 18 months at the time... More

Go visit Sam at Potter's by the Sea. You won't be disappointed. Rent a car and get to Cow Wreck Beach and Flash of Beauty. Great snorkeling and food.

Large secluded sandy beach. Nothing within walking distance of beach. We did see one restaurant/museum, but it was not open.

Anegada is one of the two most beautiful islands that makes up the chain of islands known as the British Virgin Islands. The other is my home island of Virgin Gorda. Anegada has many beautiful white sandy beaches which are situated on the northside of the island. In my view the three most beautiful beaches on Anegada are Cow Wreck,... More

This beach is nice enough but it really isn't that great. In fact, none of the beaches on this island are that nice. They are quite dirty with trash everywhere. This beach in particular is by far the best beach on the island, but compared to St John USVI or St Thomas USVI, there simply is no comparison. The infra-structure... More
