We took the ferry to Anegada for a day-trip while visiting Virgin Gorda.
We rented a jeep and explored the island on our own.
Loblolly Bay was the first beach we stopped at on Anegada. Wow!
Its at the end of dirt road about 20 minutes from ferry dock. We parked in front of the Flash of Beauty Bar. They have some chairs with shade set up at the beach. Drinks were cold and reasonable priced.
The beach was almost deserted with only about 6 other people there.
The water was beyond beautiful with different shades of blue and green.
The coral is close to the beach and the snorkeling was excellent. We saw lots of fish and we even saw a 6' reef shark. Its one of the best places we have ever snorkeled at. There was a little undertow with the current, nothing too bad but be careful.
You are able to walk at least a mile on the beach without running into any buildings.
It's a perfect beach/island setting.

One of the more 'populated' beaches on the island, Loblolly is still (thankfully) pretty deserted by Caribbean standards.

When we first arrived at Loblolly, it was raining; However, once the sun came out, it lived up to its beautiful reputation. Had a nice meal at the Big Bamboo, followed by an entire day of rest and relaxation.
The Atlantic is more like a lagoon here, as its waves are broken by the surrounding reef. Not only does this provide calm waters in which to snorkel, but also a great opportunity to comb the pristine white beaches for pretty shells and discarded coral.

A perfect place to spend some quality time away from civilisation...stress relief 100% guaranteed :)

If you are an avid snorkeler you'll LOVE it here. The reef can reach all the way up to the shore in places with the reef fish being found in less than knee deep water. As you make progress all the way out towards the breakers, you'll begin to find some breathtaking snorkeling areas. Be adventurous and find those "green spots" within the coral reef and you'll be surrounded with beauty.

We drove from the harbor to the beach. It was about a 20 minute drive. We parked at the Big Bamboo cafe, had lunch and then headed out to the beach, just steps from the cafe. The beach was clean, white sand, a few palm umbrellas and benches and plenty of space to spread out a towel. The water was crystal clear with lots of reefs to explore. The cafe has restrooms and showers, and hammocks and chairs in the shade to relax. It was great!
