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.

Our second time to Anegada with a charter boat. Our favorite spot in BVI. Rent a car or scooters and explore the island. Make sure to check out the pink flamingos. Lobster dinner is a must at one of the local spots like the Anegada Reef hotel or Neptune's. This is a special place worth the sail up.

We only went to one side of the island. My boyfriend tried kite boarding but the wind was weird there, my family tried snorkeling but it was not so great compared to the rest of the island we saw. It was kind of muddy. We tried just metal detecting and lounging on one of the beaches near where we moored... More

Diving was average compare to other areas in the BVI. Loblolloy Beach was pretty good but the main reason is Lobster.....we ate at Big Bamboo which was recommended by the locals and was great.

Anegada is now accessible by sailboats, if you follow the path carefully through the coral surrounding it. We counted over 60 boats at the anchorage. We stayed one night, had a lobster dinner and day at a beach resort on the far side. This is a coral atoll rather than a volcanic island like the rest of the BVIs, so... More

If you love lobster, Anegada is the place to go. We stopped by with a new crew promising a good lobster dinner. Potters by the sea did not disappoint. It's rare that you get your fill of lobster in one plate however with his special garlic butter sauce, I was full and finished for the evening.

We rented scooters and hit Loblolly Bay and Big Bamboo, Cow Wreck Beach and the Anegada Beach Hotel. And, make sure you order the lobster at either Neptune's Treasure or Potter's By The Sea. BOTH are awesome!

Unlike any other BVI island. Just go - you won't regret it - and visit or stay at the lovely Anegada Beach Hotel. Rent the scoters and travel around the island. Stop at Cow Wreck beach for the most beautiful Caribbean waters you will ever see. It's incredible.

We traveled from Virgin Gorda over to Anegada and it was worth the trip just because Anegada is so different from the other BVI's. It is completely flat and very sparsely populated but with beautiful isolated beaches. We walked for about four miles around one end of the island from our anchorage to Cow's Wreck Beach and only saw one... More
