The secluded and unspoiled island of Anegada is a rare and unique treasure lying seemingly hidden within the rugged and mountainous peaks of the Virgin Islands. A world apart from its neighboring volcanic islands, the coral and limestone island measures 11 miles by 3 and rises just 28 feet above sea level at its highest point. Brimming with scenic natural beauty, there are beautiful soft powdery white sand beaches which stretch for miles on end, crystal blue waters teeming with colorful fish, and a wonderful array of exotic wildlife that freely roam the island. Relatively remote, sparsely developed, and characteristically quiet and laidback, the serene setting is ideal for yacht charter guests seeking peace, relaxation, and privacy.
The Drowned Island
A coral maze that plagued ships as they unknowingly approached low-lying Anegada left behind hundreds of shipwrecks that now line the ocean floor, earning the island its Drowned Land name. While the 39 mile long Horseshoe Reef was a perilous barrier to sailors in days past, today it offers visitors to Anegada spectacular underwater landscapes that are rich in marine life. For divers and snorkelers, the surrounding waters teem with schools of mojarra, needlefish, green sea turtles, angelfish, stingrays, triggerfish, parrotfish, and horse-eye jacks.
On the Wild Side
In addition to boasting of one of the largest continuous coral reefs in the Caribbean that is rife with fish and sea creatures, Anegada is a haven for a vast population of endemic wildlife. The B.V.I. National Parks Trust has designated much of the land as a protected habitat for birds, wild goats, donkeys, and long-horned cattle which freely roam the island. A dream destination for nature lovers, charter guests will revel in the opportunity to visit picturesque salt ponds where graceful pink flamingos graze and sandy trails where endangered rock iguanas retreat.
Glistening Shores and Secluded Beaches
Anegada is known for having miles of stunningly beautiful secluded beaches and from the moment you step ashore, you will feel like you have escaped to a private tropical oasis all of your own. Cow Wreck Beach, Flash of Beauty, Bones Bight, and Windlass Bight are just a few options where you can lounge in the sun sipping on your favorite frozen cocktail, relax in the shade of a coconut palm with your toes in the soft powdery white sand, or sway in a hammock being lulled by soft ocean breezes. If snorkeling and diving is up your alley head to the impeccable turquoise waters of Loblolly Bay.
The Finest Crustaceans in All of the Caribbean
A visit to the island would not be complete without sampling the famous Anegada lobster. Renowned for being the best tasting, sweetest and most succulent in the Caribbean this local delicacy is best enjoyed fresh out of the ocean and grilled. Savor one of these freshly caught giant crustaceans at the Big Bamboo restaurant located on the west end of Loblolly Bay or have your charter chef prepare a splendid beach barbeque under the stars.
Tranquil and pristine with striking landscapes, spectacular beaches, and remarkable flora and fauna, chartering a yacht in Anegada is sure to be unforgettable. Immerse yourself in the natural beauty of one of the most unique islands in the BVI’s onboard a charter mega yacht, sailing yacht, power boat or luxury catamaran and slip away to paradise!
