We enjoyed this beach before the hurricane and although no shade at all really, the beach is still awesome. We were alone on it for the most part and snorkeled. We stayed on Virgin Gorda and so enjoyed it, could have sent every day, but...More

It is rare to see more than one other boat in the bay - the reef entrance intimidates a lot of potential visitors (and a lot of charter companies do not permit their boats to go there). Best to push up a little into Pound...More

This beach has everything. Parts of it is just sand so you can just wade In and just sit in the water with the shallow sand bottom. Other parts of the beach has a reef section that is shallow to see the fishes while still...More

Although a slightly tricky entrance (unless you have succumbed to a Cat), Savannah Bay and Pound Bay reward you with a perfect Caribbean beach, protected by the reef and free from swells. First came here hoping to dinghy ashore for the Italian Restaurant that we...More

directions to snorkel areas (7 Replies)
My family will be staying at Spring Bay in a week. There are other areas of the island that we would like to snorkel that we do not have driving, parking, and/or trail directions. Could someone be kind enough to help fill in the blanks? Savannah Bay and Pond Bay seems easy enough, but we are not sure where the best place to park and access the beach are for Mahoe or Long Bay. Also, where is the best reef area off these beaches? If anyone wants to add in other suggestions and directions for...More

Mahoe Bay is a "private community" so you'll have to park on the access road that leads to Mahoe and Nail Bays not near any of the villas. It will be about a 5 minute walk from the road to the beach area. Coming along the main island road from Spanish Town the access road will be the first left after you pass Savannah and Pond Bay (it's hard to miss). About 1/3 mile down the road is the entrance to the villas at Mahoe Bay and 1 1/2 miles further is the entrance to Nail Bay. At Mahoe the...More

Hello! My husband and I will be taking our third trip to Anguilla this coming July (probably the first week-ish). We went for our honeymoon two years ago, July 2013, and we were both there separately a few years before that. We have a pretty good handle on what we love on the island - hotel, restaurants, shops, beaches, excursions, etc. Our traveling style is to prefer the quieter beaches, good snorkeling, casual local food, beach shack eateries, chatting with locals and strangers at bars...More

Thank you Yank! You sound like you know more about the BVI than anyone I've talked to. I like to consider myself a traveler (not a tourist). I don't hang with the tourists, I like to meet the belongers and learn as much as I can about where I am. I prefer no crowds or parties! Anyways, I was in the BVI for 2 wks. last January and for part of the trip we stayed at Leverick Bay (nice place, just not my style- I prefer small- simple). During our stay we saw signs posted warning guests of the...More

Hi Again ! I live in Leverick Bay. Anyway, the jellyfish that you were warned about are Caribbean box jellyfish or sometimes they are called sea wasps. They can pack a nasty sting, but are pretty rare, and are only around a few times yearly. They are transparent, have a cube shaped bell about 2-3inches in size and four long transparent tentacles. The are very difficult to spot in the water and can occur at any time of year, but again, it's a pretty rare occurence. April/May is a good time...More
