Loblolly is a nice wide beach with sugar white sands, easy to walk and a panorama of turquoise waters, speckled with lively reefs. You won't be sorry. I've never been there with more than 20 people at this sprawling beach where you could take the longest walks in any direction if you want complete privacy. The surf is gentle and... More

Cow Wreck Beach is fun, but the snorkeling at Loblolly Beach is the best. There can be a bit of a current, but just flow with it and walk back. We saw sharks, barracuda (huge) and a wide assortment of reef fish. Beautiful.

We always plan a day at Loblolly Beach when we visit Anegada. The snorkeling is always good behind the protected reef. This year there was more waves than usual due to the 25+ knot winds from the east. We walked to the east end of the beach and had good snorkeling with the winds. We saw the usual tropical fish...

Anegada is a coral atoll in the BVI with loads of beaches and snorkeling. Loblolly Beach is by far the best snorkeling on the island. The beach is clean with palm umbrellas and food and drinks are available. This is a must when visiting Anegada

Loblolly Bay is an Anegada must-see. It is a beautiful beach that extends for about 3/4 of a mile between two great bars. The Big Bamboo is on the west end of the bay, and Flash of Beauty is on the east end. The snorkeling at Loblolly Bay is very good, with clear water and lots of sea life. Be... More

Loblolly was a stunning beach with excellent snorkeling. We were so happy we made the trip out. Loblolly has small huts on the beach with benches if you need to stay out of the sun. The water was crystal clear and there was such a variety of fish.
