If you are up for a blue water sail and some potentially bigger waves, the 12 miles from North Sound, Virgin Gorda to Anegada is worth the trip. The entry into the harbor is a little tricky and there is some drift if you just follow a course, put if you set a waypoint with your GPS you should not have any trouble. We find it best to leave early from Leverick Bay and beat most folks into the anchorage, so best not to have too may rum punches at Happy AAR the night before if Michael Bean is performing. We grab a mooring and dinghy in as soon as we get there and grab a cab to the Big Bamboo in Loblolly Bay. There is great lobster on the island but it can be costly and getting it for lunch is a much more affordable option. As soon as you get to the restaurant order your lunch and give them a time and then head to one of the best beaches anywhere. The snorkeling on the reef is excellent, unless there is a North wind, that can lead to some murkiness and some tough waves on the reef. We have also dragged all our dive gear there and have been given permission by the owner to dive, but this is a bit of a chore. After lunch, where you should definitely sample their Bushwackers as they are excellent, relax in one of the hammocks amongst the Beach Plum, which by the way you can smell as you enter the anchorage if there happens to be a rain shower. We have also rented a car and toured around the island which is fun. On the way back from Loblolly get your cab driver to take you to the Settlement and stock up from the bakery, the coconut bread is heavenly. We just have a light snack on the boat for dinner and watch one of the best sunsets with the silhouettes of the Casuarina trees. An early departure the next day on basically the same tack, will get you back to the Bitter End with enough time to hang out there or at Saba Rock for the afternoon.
