A spectacular location and great snorkeling. My son spent 10 minutes snorkeling with a sea turtle. The beach is so nice we went back multiple times during our stay on Anegada. The Big Bamboo restaurant has great food and the staff is very friendly. You'll enjoy spending time there.

After snorkeling (not much to see, but the water is great), this is a great place to sit, have a drink and relax. And if I may, I would like to recommend the Bushwhacker. It's kind of like an adult chocolate shake - I am hooked!

Loblolly was very serene, but the staff was not as welcoming as other places. Drinks were good and the beach was peaceful.

The snorkeling here was amazing. Lots of coral right off shore. I felt like I was part of a Discovery Channel show. Saw several coral fish and a stingray. Ate at Touch of Beauty Restaurant right off of the beach. Good burgers and beer! A nice beach to relax on after an afternoon of snorkeling.

Beautiful beach with turquoise waters. We found Loblolly offers the best snorkelling on Anegada, when compared to the beaches off Anegada Beach Club and Cow Wreck where there isn't as much to look at. We were the first to arrive at Loblolly that morning so had the beach to ourselves for a little while before groups of people started to... More

We did make reservations and while its a bit of a drive from the main harbor, they offer free transportation too and from the restaurant. At first glance I thought the prices were a little steep but then I realized what we ordered came with soup, salad and desert as well as a good selection of vegetables. I should have... More

Worth seeing on the trip to Anegada - you can walk for miles and not feel crowded at all - the loblolly restaraunt is always accommodating

During our visit to Anagada, we took a trip to loblolly beach. Great snorkeling, lots to see, a large variety of fish in the area, not much current to contend with, and a great little restaurant for lunch. Just let them know what time you want to eat, what you want, and they will have it all ready for you.... More

Fantastic snorkeling, saw a giant lobster in the reef. Best side was to the left of where the restaurant is, if you're facing the ocean. Extremely clear, beautiful water. Loved it.
