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

You'll discover an abundance of beaches to choose from on the island. Snorkeling is an option at some locations, for visitors who enjoy the underwater scene. Just click on the name of the beach for detailed information about that beach.

A nice beach where you may find people snorkeling is Cow Wreck Bay. The bay is surrounded by beautiful plant life and sand dunes and offers miles of soft, white sand. Guarded by the extensive coral reefs offshore, the waters are calm and shallow, perfect for casual swimming and snorkeling.

Another good choice 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: The sand at Bones Bight takes on an almost peach color. Mixed in with Anegada's famously beautiful water, this beach is a picture perfect location for those looking for the quintessential tropical beach.

Anegada has many other beaches to choose from. Take advantage of this extended discussion if you want to find additional facts.
