We visited in July and basically had the place to ourselves. There were only about 10 other people there relaxing and snorkeling. It's not the best place to snorkel as most of the reef is dead, but still enjoyable to swim around. We took naps and woke up and had the whole 12 mile beach and emerald green water to... More

Great beach on a normal occasion but right now seaweed is wreaking havoc on many islands. We arrived here after a $60 cab ride for our family only to find the beach deserted and mounds of seaweed on every inch of the beach as well as floating several feet into the water. Needless to say between the smell and the... More

Great beach to hang out at during the day and to go snorkeling. The BVIs are experiencing some patches of seaweed coming up on the beaches but still a stunning beach!

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
