Some of the best snorkeling I have ever seen. Saw nurse sharks, eagle ray, barracuda and countless fish. You have to swim a bit far from shore but well worth it. You have the beach pretty much to yourselves. Not crowded at all. Highly recommend.

Beautiful beach that is said to be best snorkeling on Anegada. We snorkeled around a bit and were most likely in too close to see much worthwhile. The current was a bit stronger than ideal so we did not venture out the distance to the...More

We always make this our first stop on Anegada. The view is postcard material and the snorkeling is always great. Plenty of places to sit on the beach and relax the day away. The food is equally as good (try the lobster fritters) and the...More

This beach was beautiful and had far fewer people than Loblolly (not that either is crowded by most standards), but we found it difficult to snorkel here. Maybe the tide was too low, but we found it too shallow to safely snorkel without hitting the...More

Flash of Beauty has the best snorkeling on the island (unless you venture out in a boat). More marine life, activate coral, and fish here than any other place we found. The beach is beautiful and you'll be sharing it with relatively few people. There's...More
