Snorkeling here is great for those not confidant in swimming. Lots of coral to see without challenging water. Beach was beautiful and not busy with plenty if shade to go around.

Feels like you can walk forever and not see people…lovely beach, soft sand, and the coral reefs come in quite close so snorkeling is excellent (they say: water was too rough the day we were there--we aren't strong swimmers; even near the shore we did see things, though) THere are facilities --even a shower. Gift store very lackluster. SOme shaded... More

One of the best beaches you'll ever go to and the snorkelling is really great. Just remember to bring a lot of sunscreen, you're gonna need it. The beach bar is good, expensive drinks if you like the blender drinks, but if you're up for a walk , walk down the beach, around the point and there is a much... More

It's a drive to the beach on Anegada but the sand is pristine, it's not crowded and snorkeling inside the reef is easy. It can be a bit windy

Second time to Loblolly. Love the beach, views and the bar is a classic. Rented mopeds this time and pavement goes all the way now, so was fun getting there.

It's about a 40-minute boat ride from Beef Island/Tortola, but to see the water and beach around the reef island of Anegada is worth the ride and the time. A quick cab ride down the narrow road ways leads to Loblolly Beach, with a bar and restaurant on site. Sea grape trees provide a shady break between the bar/restaurant and... More

We sailed to Anegada and took a cab to Loblolly for the day. The snorkeling is good but the views from the beach are spectacular. There are public showers available for a reasonable price and a modest restaurant and bar just yards from the beach. It was my second trip to Loblolly and very much worth the trip.

Yes, it's pretty famous and the biggest tourist stop on the island. But the REALLY good snorkeling id almost 1/4 mile off shore. The current can be strong and if you get anxious at all, you WON'T be comfortable going that far out. Farther in, I DID swim with a barracuda and a sting ray. Pretty cool on both. The... More

Beautiful, nearly deserted beach. Wide, with pink sand. The people who brought snorkeling equipment were having the time of their lives. Little restaurant there had great service, good drinks, and very nice staff.
