the first few times into Anegada we hit loblolly. then we discovered Flash of Beauty. Never looked back. Secluded. Agressive snorkeling with a small sailboat wreck lying in 2 parts the hull and the deck, swim thru coral formations and lots of sea life. It is active with a lot of current. NOT for the sometimes swimmer. As you arrive on the beach, you'll walk past the beach bar, hit the beach, drop your gear, spend "chill" time, and then walk to the right to the point. That is where i'd pop the question.
Please be careful with the snorkeling.
As you head to Anegada you'll not see the island for a while, then telephone poles and sailboat masts will start to appear. As the island mass appears,
divide the island in 3rds and head towards the left third of the island. Lots of places on line have gps #'s for the buoys marking the way in. Here's one link to info/navigation:
Navigating to Anegada
Cooper Island is a good first/last stop. Its a short sail back to your base. the snorkeling is nice and if you're a diver some of the best diving spots on the other side of the island. There is a dive shop on island or you can set up a rendezvous dive with other shops.
On St John, Uncle Joe's ribs, 340 693 8806 is out door dining with the best casual food going.I'd suggest calling to make sure you get your order in as they run out of food. Ribs, chicken and the combo. Combo's good for starters then figure it out. I'm ribs solo with cole slaw, mac salad, or corn for sides. Around the corner is Hercules for great local Saltfish, beef or chicken Pates, Johnny cakes, local soups. It doesnt look like much but he's been there since my first stop in 1989.
The first pic shows the Jollly Roger in Sopers Hole (west end on Tortola) its a great spot for sunset dining. Nice food. Reservation suggested.
Second pic is sunrise at Marina Cay. Nice stop.
Third pic is Diamond Cay, Foxy's taboo. You'll find the "bubbler" on this part of the island. Nice walk to an active whirlpool.
Fourth pic is from The Last Resort/Trellis Bay on Beef Island. Good food, good fun. If you hit Marina Cay on the way out, hit Trellis on the way back.
Enjoy and congrats!
PM if I can help.
