Anegada, or the “Drowned Island” is the only island made of coral reef in the British Virgin Islands.  It is the least developed of the chain, with a very low population and very few buildings.  Even bars and restaurants mainly exist as huts on the beach.  Those attracted to this island find the deserted island feel to be most appealing and the fact that activities are sparse is a-okay with them.
