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 consider visiting on the island. Snorkeling is available at some locations, for those who are so inclined. Just click on the beach names to read a detailed article concerning that individual beach.

A local beach that offers 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 those who enjoy snorkeling is Loblolly Bay. Voted one of the best beaches in the world, Loblolly Bay beach on Anegada offers a long stretch of uncrowded, soft white sand. Shallow waters are perfect for casual swimming and snorkeling, with a 50-foot walkout into the clear blue ocean.

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.

Luckily, the area has a wide range of beaches to choose from on the island. You can go to this page if you want to find out additional information.
