This is the best of all the virgin island, Spanish, US and British for its laid back chilled vibes. There is nothing rushed here everything comes in its own time, this is the place to kick back and relax, unwind and lose all your stress. Turn off your phone and tablet sit down your laptop and look at what nature... More

We loved the experience on a pretty deserted island. If you take the ferry, be prepared to be there all day. it was very beautiful. The best beaches in all of the British Virgin Islands. Just breath taking.

This was a very simple low key island with lots of beaches to snorkel and some of the best lobster ever. There are car rentals and we rented one and drove around the island. Watch out for the feral donkey, cows, and goats while you drive. We ate at Neptunes Treasures. We snorkeled at Big Bamboo and a Flash of... More

I was lucky enough to get to sail over, which of course is very special. But the island is a wonderful getaway for a day or two with glorious beaches, friendly people and a handful of good places to eat too. Loblolly is a favorite of a lot of locals. But check out "Flash of Beauty" beach and Cow Wreck,... More

Anegada is a beautiful coral island in the BVI. There are some wonderful restaurants and this is the best place for lobster in lobster season. Best beaches are Cow Wreck and Loblolly. The people of Anegada are very welcoming in this laid back island.

This island has got to stop advertising that it has flamingos. It does, but the only glimpse you will get of them are some teeny, tiny pink dots waaay off in the distance. You cannot get anywhere near them on foot or by boat to see them, which is great from an eco perspective, but they should stop advertising the... More

There was nothing I disliked. Anegada is unspoiled. The people are friendly at the docks, the restaurants, car rentals, and shops. I would consider going to back to Anegada for a week. Anegada is one of the most peaceful places I've ever been.

Totally secluded island, with only about 200 permanent residents. The ferry ride is long but so worth it. Great snorkeling and lunch at Anegada Beach Club. Rent a Jeep or scooter for the day to drive from beach to beach, each one more beautiful than the last. Highly recommend!
