Beaches on Anegada

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

There are a large number of beaches to consider on the island. Snorkeling is available at several locations, for vacationers who enjoy the underwater scene. Click on the name of the beach for a detailed review of that section of the coast.

Cow Wreck Bay

A nice beach where you can go snorkeling is 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.

Another option for beach-goers to consider is Flash of Beauty Beach. Along the north shore visitors will find beach after each. Flash of Beauty is located at the end of roads that pass by Loblolly Beach.

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. \
