Anegada or the "drowned island" is completely surrounded by shallow reefs, and has become the focal point of underwater diving due to the many historic shipwrecks that litter the island's underwater depths.

Not your typical Virgin Island. Very low key and unpretentious. Restaurants are mostly on the beach and bare feet are a must.

Amazing clear waters, met by the jovial Barry and a few other restaurant owners in their dingys. Singing and chatting, relling us about their restaurant, and the Lobster season had just opened. The whole island is a beautiful blue water sandy beach destination with the most beautiful people. We returned a 2nd time and spent another 3 days , turtles,... More

We took a quick taxi over to Loblolly bay ($12 per person). Our taxi driver dropped us and picked us up at the time we specified. We had the beach to ourselves!!

This is our second time back to Anegada. The entrance is not that difficult to navigate if you follow the sailing guide and look for the buoys. Anchoring is pretty easy or just snatch a mooring ball. Dingy onshore for lunch then rent a scooter for USD17 (2 hours or a little more for a day) to go around the... More

What's not to love about a flat coral-reef fringed island with mile after mile of stunning soft white sand beaches with hardly a soul in sight? If you walk along the beach from Pomato Point to Cow Wreck Beach Bar (about an hour and a bit), you will be lucky to see another person. Stop at Cow Wreck for a... More

Arrive at Anegada at around 9am, we unloaded on the dingy and waited for our scheduled taxi to take us to the beach. Our first stop was at the Salt pond to see the pink flamingos; they were pretty far away and hard to see. We spent the day at 2 separate beach clubs one on Loblolly beach and the... More

We found the entrance and mooring area too shallow. One boat width outside markers is too wide and can easily ground.

Just spent two days here while cruising the BVI. Had a memorable stay with the family and hope to back again soon with them all again.

It's of course, the best island in whole BVI and the second of whole the Caribbean (from my point of view). You should be there for sure if you're around.

Absolutely amazing and only accessible by private sail boats as not many charters will sail there due to corals... we had the time of our lives there!
