Anegada Attractions

If there is something to be seen on Anegada, it exists outdoors.  The beaches remain the most popular attractions with tourists, but there are a few other things to be seen -- though they do mainly revolve around water, be it a coral reef that should be seen by snorkeling or diving, or a sandy bay.


Cow Wreck Bay

There are a large selection of beaches to choose from on the island. Snorkeling is an option at several locations, for visitors who enjoy this relaxing pastime. Click on the name of each beach for more detail concerning that specific beach.

A nice beach where you can go snorkeling is Cow Wreck Bay. Cow Wreck Bay, located on the island of Anegada, offers miles of soft, white sand, accompanied by some of the best swimming waters in the British Virgin Islands. The area is largely undeveloped, with a local beach bar one of the few options for food and drink in the immediate area.

Another good option for snorkelers is Loblolly Bay. The beach offers more than nine miles of stretch of white, soft sand and is surrounded by light tropical shrubbery and seagrapes, which provide excellent shade. Calm turquoise waters make for exquisite swimming and snorkeling, though the extensive stretch of shallow ocean is perfect for simply lounging about.

Bones Bight Beach: Rarely crowded and very large, Bones Bight Beach is a great place for visitors looking for peace and quiet. The long stretch of sand gives beach goers plenty to explore, and the resident rock iguanas can keep nature lovers and photographers happy.

These are just a few of your options. For a more detailed look at this specific topic, read this page.
