Owner description: Anegada or the "drowned island" is completely surrounded by shallow reefs, and has become the focal point of underwater diving due to the many historic shipwrecks that litter the island's underwater depths.

Beautiful beaches, great people and a fun ferry ride. Make sure to visit Kenny and explore the island on his mopeds!

Anegada is unique, very shocking island with many ecosystems , wildlife and sea life . Is very relaxing with few tourists and persons. The roads are desert with some cars o trucks, in some locations you can see cows, goats, chickens ,sheep's & flamingos! The island doesn't have mountains but have ponds and lagoons, a dry forest and a beautiful turquoise clear beaches with white sand! Also Have restaurants, bars, hotels , car rentals and souvenir shop. Is a beautiful place to visit and exploring. The people is very friendly, grateful and living in an eternity tranquility where only you can hear the waves and the sea breeze!

during our sailing trip we stopped at Anegada Island. Getting in there was already a great experience - sailing experience helps :-) It was the first day of the Lobster season and we had a great lobster dinner next to the beach - just paradise, great fresh lobster and a special very relaxed atmosphere!

We have visited Anegada a number of times in the past 20 years. This trip was different since we hired Captain Kelly and his nephew Kendrick for an up close trip out to the coral reef that surrounds the north and eastern side of the island. We read that it is one of the largest coral reefs in the Atlantic. A couple hours with incredible fish, turtles and manta rays highlighted with a conch harvest. We gathered more than a dozen and Kendrick instructed us how to clean and prepare them. Raw conch melts in your mouth! The Lobsta Trap prepared out catch 3 ways and was a premier appetizer to out lobster dinner. Hint- order the half or share. They were huge.

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.
