I have sailed the BVI a few times, the last time was the best I had my wife her sister and my brother in-law with me on this trip. We stopped at Anegada for the day and went ashore to find a few shops, a bar along with a small restaurant. The waitress was taking reservations for that nights dinner... More

Anegada is very laid back and has just a different feel. I personally love it there. Loblolly beach on the north side is beautiful, not crowded at all. You can walk for miles on the north side. The snorkelling there depends very much on the wind direction but you can have easy access directly off of the beach. The day... More

Went over via DiveBVI. Those people on the boat where amazing! They told us about all the islands we passed; animals, fish, people, culture, etc. On the island we took the snorkel tour, and it was a blast. The island is fun, and it's nice to go to an island that isn't developed yet. Great beach and fresh seafood for... More

We went here for the day. Long boat ride. Snorkeling was extremely tough. Lunch was fun. Went back after lunch to our "tiki" Felt like I was on a crowded beach. Lost the whole feel. Lots of money..... Why?? People less the 2 feet away long long long boat ride. 1 1/2 hours each way from scrub island. Lost an... More

Pristine white sand beaches with a number of excellent restaurants. Good snorkeling at Lobolly, good relaxing at CowWreck, and great BBQ at Anegada Reef Hotel.

This is a fab place if your goal is relaxing. Not much more to do, but it is beautiful and yummy food, esp. lobster.

We sailed the BVI's for the third time this winter but this is the first time we made the trip north to this island. We had a 47' monohull so we had to anchor for the night. On shore there is a great beach bar, several cute shops, and a hotel. We intended to rent bicycles or mopeds but got... More

The island is simply perfect if you love endless beaches, white sand, bathing etc. Stay a couple of days and enjoy the relaxing life on the beach with nothing to do but to take it easy. In the evenings you will enjoy the wonderful sunset and the excellent sea food.

I've traveled for years but this is probably the most out-of-the-way-middle-of-nowhere-yet-inviting places I've visited. When you sail to the island you initially can't see it even though the rest of the BVI is visible behind you. But once you're there it is beautiful and serene. When we moored, we were greeted by "Sam" who sang in a clear and beautiful... More

There are some places to eat and drink but the primary attraction is the chance to point the boat at an open ocean and hope you find an island. We did, but as it is a flat island you don't see it from a distance. The water is very shallow, both approaching the harbor and in the mooring field as... More
