Fun Tourist Stop

Plenty of food and snorkel options , a bit crowded but beautiful. The East side gets windy so go early in the day.

If i could close my eyes, click my heels and travel to the idea beach Loblolly Beach would be it. Miles of beach to walk, a couple of beach bars, very few people and the coral reef is right there.

The beach itself is nice. A popular snorkeling spot. It does get a bit crowded (by Anegada standards that is), and there are no lounge chairs; only benches.

This beach was the first one I ever visited on Anegada and I never wanted to leave. It's about a mile long crescent with a beach bar at either end, and boasts the best snorkelling on the island. Spend a day, or a week if you want as there are villas to rent right on the beach too. Don't miss... More

Loblolly is a must! The beach is beautiful and offers an amazing, relaxing, laid back feel. The bar was nice and the food was good as well. Will for sure be going back next time.

Loblolly bay/beach is a "must" to visit if you've made the trek to Anegada. It's a short taxi from where you are moored - you tell them how long you want to stay and they return to pick you up - couldn't be easier. The beach is very large - you can walk quite a ways and because it is... More

We've been to Loblolly Beach twice on day trips - once last year from VG when it rained the whole time, second time last week from Tortola when it was too windy to snorkel (big swells). So our advice for daytrippers is to watch the weather and find out about winds before you go, if snorkeling is what you want... More

Unlike many snorkeling sites that you need to access by boat, at Loblolly Beach you can literally step out from the beach and access some of the best snorkeling in BVI. Take a taxi or your scooter (which you can rent for ~$15 for 2 hours) and follow the signs to Loblolly Beach and The Big Bamboo. Walk out from... More

We rented scooters to get to the other side of the island where Lobllolly Beach is located. They were half the cost of a ferry, and we had a fun ride around the island. The beaches are a must see. Highly recommend if you are coming to Anegada.

We liked the snorkeling here as well as Flash of Beauty. The reef is better the further out you go. If the surf is super high you may have to deal with cloudy water, we had many good days of snorkeling here in January.
