Anegada, a world apart – British Virgin Islands

8 Jun

Beautiful Anegada is a Caribbean vacationer’s dream: more than 300 wrecks to dive to and explore, matched by silvery sand beaches and flocks (seriously, flocks) of flamingos.

Anegada is also known as the “Drowned Island” because its highest point is just 28 feet above sea level. There are a handful of villas, hotels and privately run inns on Anegada, but most travelers choose to sail here for the day from Tortola.

Hopefully you appreciate seclusion, because Anegada offers it in spades. On the up side, that means you’ll never have to hunt for a good perch on the beach; the downside is you will have to hunt for the nearest convenience store (or bring your own snacks and water). If you get hungry, though, travelers insist that you head to the waterfront Lobster Trap, which specializes in fresh seafood.

Tourists said their visit to the tranquil Anegada was the most relaxing part of their trip to the British Virgin Islands because of its secluded landscape and virtually deserted (but particularly pristine) beaches.

Anegada is located north of Virgin Gorda and northeast of Tortola. Ferries run daily at set times from Tortola’s Road Town dock to Anegada. Round-trip tickets cost $55 for adults, $45 for seniors and $35 for kids; group discounts are available for parties of five or more.
