Loblolly Bay Beach is where we first fell in love with this island. That was 16 years ago. There are some cottages now, some paved paths, and the Big Bamboo restaurant is now larger but none of this interferes with one of the longest, prettiest beaches I have seen. Snorkeling is still good right off the beach (say hello to... More

Beautiful beach, but reef is played out, sadly. Still a great visit and if you are 4 or less, rent a vehicle and drive yourself here and also try Cow Wreck Bay, cheaper than a taxi.

We rented scooters to explore. Having visited anegada many times, Loblolly Bay is on our list of must do's every trip. Something about the incredible sand, the pounding surf noise at the distant barrier reef. the gin-clear water. you can't describe the beauty or the vibe. Just go there!

This is a great beach to snorkel. There was a lot to see under the water. There are benches under thatched roof umbrellas where you can leave your towels and such. The beach itself is beautiful. There are facilities there such as a restaurant where you can get hamburgers and fries and such, restrooms with flush toilets, and showers are... More

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
