Owner description: 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 sail from Virgin Gorda is really nice, with great perspective of all the islands in the BVI chain. The entrance to the harbor is a little tricky, but the protection is good due. To all the reefs.
Plenty of good restaurants, with fresh lobster, although it is inconvenient to place your order prior to 4 pm, as required by all restaurants.
We rented a car from SK, and it was reasonable and ok. We visited the beaches on the West and North ends. Both were beautiful. We also fly fished for bonefish with no luck, but the habitat looks perfect. There are flamingos in the large salt marshes.
If you are adventurous, go for it!

I have sailed to Anegada many times. Its a sleep little island unlike many of the area its flat , it has amazing empty beaches and lots of reefs to explore. There are few restaurants. A tiny airport if you plan to fly in. I think there is a ferry every now and aging from Tortola.

Stunning, beautiful, miles and miles of virgin white sand stretching into aquamarine to deep blue sea. One of the last untouched places on earth. Loblolly Bay great for snorkeling and watching shark mate! (yes really!). At Cow Wreck the manager waded into the sea to select our lobster for lunch (HUGE!) and onto Anegada Reef for the famous Smoothies. We previous visit on a yacht overnight and dined at the Lobster Pot which is my favourite place on earth for lobster dinners and limbo dancing under a broom handle!

Anegada is different from all the other isands in the BVI, has also the 3rd largest barrier reef in the world. Is quiet, calm and has amazing lobsters! Make sure you don't miss it!!

We lucked out when a friend flew us over in his plane for the day. Literally had the beach to ourselves. What an amazing island!
