“Best Snorkeling on Anegada”
Reviewed 25 July 2014

Everyone ends up here at some point during the day on Anegada and it is beautiful. The reef is so old, not in a bad way, there are swim throughs and canyons that took hundreds of years to make.
This is the nicest beach on Anegada

“One of our best snorkeling sites in BVIs!”
Reviewed 10 July 2014

We had rented a jeep for the day ($65) and drove ourselves to the beach. We thought we are on the wrong beach as there was only one other family there. Incredible sand goes on forever in both directions. Coral was amazing. There are ravines within the coral…at one point you are swimming on the surface trying not to touch anything and the next minute it is 20 ft deep. Saw barracuda, squid, lots of tropical fish, conch. Not much shade but worth a visit if you snorkel. Best snorkeling on the island for us.

“Away from the crowds! Beautiful!”
Reviewed 3 July 2014

We felt alone in the world... Beautiful white sandy beaches, fish eating out your hands in the water and not a soul in site for ages.... WOW! WOW! WOW!
Bring snorkeling gear, very nice snorkeling to be done! Everything is expensive on BVI so we had water and snacks. The Big Bamboo is right there; good and priced ok (so stop for a drink after all the snorkeling!) There is parking just before the beach; we rented a car ($ 60.00 - day + insurance $ 20.00); which you will need if you plan on touring the island.
Perfect place to spend half a day!

“Endless pink sand beach!”
Reviewed 17 June 2014

The sand here is stunning, you can walk for miles. Order lunch at the Big Bamboo and soak up the ambiance ..... wonderful.
We took a hire car from the "arrival" side of the island $65 for the day for 4 people so good value to explore the whole island.
Take your snorkel gear for sure ..... one of the few spots to pick up decent ice cream scooped into a dish or cone.
