A recent post on the Travel page of the NY Times rated Anegada as one of the Caribbean’s best beach spots.
‘What better place to hit the beach than an island almost entirely surrounded by one? The 11-mile-long Anegada is one of the least visited of the British Virgin Islands, in part because it is so remote.
‘Some 15 miles north of Virgin Gorda – itself a backwater in the sparsely populated island chain – Anegada is usually discovered by tourists in one of two ways: on a chartered day sail from a larger nearby island or by arranging a stay at one of the handful of hotels there.
‘Unlike its rockier, volcanic neighbors, Anegada is a flat coral island where mile after mile of beach extends in undeveloped solitude. A walk from Cow Wreck Bay in the northwest to Loblolly Bay in the northeast is not great for people watching, but you’ll see plenty of goats. If you make a rum punch pit stop at one of the bars along the beach, you’ll see about as much commercial development as there is on Anegada.
‘HOW TO GET THERE: Tour boat companies from Virgin Gorda and Tortola drop day-trippers on the island, or you can go on your own by chartering a small plane.’
