Featuring miles upon miles of uninterrupted and nearly deserted beaches is the “Drowned Isle” of Anegada. Many are bays that scoop inward, leaving them protected from strong surf and ideal for both swimming and snorkeling, while others are straight shots that are frequented by kitesurfers, but all are quiet and uncrowded.    

The Area's Beaches

You'll discover a large selection of beaches to consider on the island. Snorkeling is available at some of these beaches, if some members of your party enjoy this relaxing pastime. Click on the name of each beach to get additional information concerning that particular location.

If you are hoping to snorkel, a location where that's an option is 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.

A second location worth considering is Flash of Beauty Beach. Along the shores of Flash of Beauty, visitors will find hammocks and a beach bar, while in the water the surf is calm enough for some snorkeling where where is a reef and a whole world of sea life.

Windlass Bight Beach: The beach is set in a half-moon bay with light golden sand backed with lush green shrubs, and leading out to bright blue waters. \
