Anegada or the "drowned island" is completely surrounded by shallow reefs, and has become the focal point of underwater diving due to the many historic shipwrecks that litter the island's underwater depths.

At first, we could not decide if we wanted to do an overnight at Anegada but, I am definitely glad we did. It was the highlight of our sailing adventure. We hired a driver to take us to Loblolly Bay for the afternoon and it was fantastic. We basically had the entire beach to ourselves. The views and water were... More

Best part of Anegada is the Lobster! Many harbor restaurants offering fresh live lobster as Anegada has the world's third largest barrier reef surrounding the island. Good snorkeling at Loblolly Bay. 12 miles north of Virgin Gorda/North Sound- about 3 hour sail.

First off, I didn't go there. I'm basing this rating on the opinions of the captain of our cat who has sailed the BVI almost a dozen times. This is the only place we didn't go because of seas and weather. But all the other places he took us were first rate all the way. Great for spiny lobster and... More

If you are in the BVI you simply must visit Anegada, the north most island (Luckily this means most tourists and cruise ships don't make it there). Moor up on the south of the island by Potters and rent a scooter (very suspect but good fun and access) and head to Cow Gate bay for some of the best snorkelling... More

We went for the day. Flew in and out on VI AirLink, $99 roundtrip from Beef Island. You can not beat that. We went to Cow Wreck Bay and Loblolly Bay. Both were great!!

It is an amazing island. Different from the others in the area. It is "flat", so maybe that's why is a little bit windy. There are rental cars to visit Anegada. There are pink flamingos and great nature spots.

No place like it - beautiful history, beautiful people, indescribable beauty. If you're looking for glitz and glam, this isn't the place. But if you're looking for r&r, good company, and great food and drink, this could be it. Bring your swimsuit, flip flops, and a couple of cover ups, and you're all set. It's not easy to get there,...

We were visiting during a quiet season not during "Full Moom Festival Days" which can be quite fun I here--- sometime we'll get to that-- this time we explored the sailing journey with my wonderful sissy and her family-- I just adore them!! We were really letting out the sails for the first time seeing what our gorgeous kitten had... More
