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.

The best island in the BVI

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!

We sailed to Anegada and spent the afternoon on the beach. That evening, we had lobster dinners. All was a great day.

Anegada is a great place to go and let your brain go fallow for a few days. About as relaxed and laid back as is possible to be without falling into a coma. Good food, friendly people and literally miles and miles of empty beaches.

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.
