Everything about this place is amazing! The bar has a laid back island feel and is run by the nicest people! Anne and Andrew felt like friends when we left, and the service was great! The beach is also one of the prettiest I have seen. Can't beat this place and I would highly recommend this spot to anyone.

I've been fortunate to visit the BVI several times now. Each time, I look most forward to Cow Wreck Beach. The view is just unreal, unlike any I've seen. There are no crowds, and Ann and Andrew are the nicest!!! It was a pleasure getting to know them this past trip with my cousins! We visited twice! Drinks are amazing!... More

We were in BVI in early February, and took a boat from the Moorings to Anegada. We were there 4 years earlier, but decided to take a taxi to the other side, on the advice from some friends. We got the cab from Potter's, and got to Cow Wreck around 11:00 a.m. The Beach was gorgeous and Cow Wreck Beach... More

Where else can you just make your own drinks behind the bar and pay when you are done? The couple that run the place are super nice and it was one of the best beaches we stopped at on our nine day sailing trip. They also rent paddle boards and the water is crystal clear. They also have a huge... More

We had lunch here several times. Highly recommend the fish tacos. Wash it all down with a cool Carib with a lime. Yum!

We were there a little early while they were getting ready, cleaning off chairs. You would think that they would be happy for the business when we asked if we could just get one drink. Instead it was as if we were annoying her. Then she charged us $9.00 per drink, which was double what anyone else on the island... More

Don't get me wrong, this bar has great atmosphere, views and service; however I was shocked when I saw a miscellaneous charge for over 35% of my bill tacked onto the bill. When asked if this was gratuity, I was told no. Living in the VI, and having been to other bars on Anegada and the BVI, I never heard... More

After a short 20 minute flight on a small aircraft and a nice taxi ride, we arrived at Cow Wreck beach bar, where our kids snorkled years ago and brought up way too many conch that the local staff prepared for us in an amazing ceviche salad style. NOT the case this time. We oredered our lunch around 11:00 am... More
