Sailing to Anegada Island was one of the highlights of our 8 day adventure on our friends Cat. We secured a mooring ball at Setting Point on the south side of the island. We caught a ride from the Lobster Trap (restaurant) to the north shore and the Anegada Beach Club at Keel Point where we spent the afternoon swimming.
The beach is expansive with beautiful white sand. The wind kicks up more on the north side, perfect for kite sailing. Water is like bath water and it's crystal clear. Nice part is you can walk pretty far out before it gets up to your neck. The kids LOVED using their snorkeling gear. Couldn't get them out of the water!
Anegada itself is different from all the other islands. It's the only coral island in the Virgin Islands -- the rest are all volcanic islands. Unlike all the others that rise well above the water, Anegada is completely flat.
We paid $35 to secure a mooring ball for the evening which is a good price. Unlike a number of popular sailing destinations in the Islands where you have to get there early if you want to secure a mooring ball, we arrived a little after noon and there were plenty of balls available.
If you're sailing and need provisions, you're out of luck. However, there are some very nice restaurants you can hit for lunch or dinner. We made reservations (highly recommended you make a reservation!!) at the Lobster Trap and it didn't disappoint -- excellent dinner and atmosphere. Had one of our best meals there.
