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.

There is a ferry that goes to Anegada three times a week, Monday, Wednesday and Friday and if you are lucky also Sunday. You can check online beforehand on the departure and arrival times.

Hello, I am so excited... will be travelling on the Norwegian Escape this August (I am from England) and will be visiting Tortola for the day. We will be arriving into Road Town.

Anegada Island (1 Reply)
Hello, I have been told that I absolutely need to visit Anegada island while in the BVI. Anyone has experience with the island and can tell me a bit about it. Also, would you recommend a quick day tour there and then taking the ferry back in the evening to Tortola or would you recommend spending the night in Anegada?

Good morning, I'm by no means an expert having only been there once for a week this past August. We flew in from STT so I have no experience taking the ferry there but from what I gather it runs on only certain days so just check that schedule. We have been visiting USVI for many years and stay on St. John. Our friends who live on STJ had been to Anegada a few times and wanted us to experience the island so we joined them last summer. It was quite a treat, long sandy beaches that went on...More

Which beach to visit? (3 Replies)
We are planning a cruise vacation this coming January 2013. I have heard that Anegada Island is great as well as Virgin Gorda (The Baths). We are wondering if it is possible to take a water taxi to either of the above beaches and still be within our cruise ships time table for returning to the ship (5pm). Also wondering if there are water taxis's and how much should we expect to pay. One more question, my husband loves to fish. Can he do any beach shore fishing on these two beaches? Thanks BJ

There is no way to get to Anegada for a one day cruise stop. You can go to VG on the public ferry and if you do a search you will find a lot of threads on this subject. I would say that you cannot fish at the baths as there are too many people there swimming.
