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.

We got a taxi to Loblobby and had a ball. The bar & food was good. The snorkeling was even better... Big brain coral reef colorful fish... Most fish are small.

Remote beach reached by open taxi from the Anegada Reef hotel. Best snorkeling ever as long as you are comfortable swimming out to the reef, which is not out of reach.

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!
