Just be aware that the Indians are a shadow of their former glory.

Anegada is the poster for the 'ilonds'.
Truly picture perfect, sunrise to sunset, pink flamingos, including the some of the best snorkeling, even a small sailboat wreck. Solitude and privacy if that's important.
We did have guests that wanted to leave shortly after our arrival. We dont miss them.
Having trouble posting pics...

Re: BVI's must see

We did not love Anagada but we do love isolated. We alternated between live anchorages and quiet ones during our charter so we could enjoy Willy Ts. For instance, we stayed on the Ivan's side of the beach at Jost and skipped Foxys. Peter island is quiet as is little Jost.

The reason we did not like the anagada is because it is not as visually stunning as the other islands. However, we did enjoy the snorkeling at Lobloly and dinner. We just felt it was not necessary to stay more than 1 day.

Agree with nothing going on including clothing. Wide expanses make it very easy to go c/o while not infringing on the locals.

My impression is that the kind of people who think the best thing about the BVIs is Foxy's or the Willie-T generally don't like Anegada--too isolated, nothing going on. The kind of people who LIKE "isolated" and "nothing going on" are the ones who like Anegada.

Re: BVI's must see

We loved Anegada mostly for the lack of development, and really liked those gigantic lobsters- got there just in time to put in a reservation for my sweetie and I. We sailed over from Virgin Gorda, but I can't remember how long it took us to get there; just a few hours if I recall. You can't see anything until you're at least half way over so you'll be relying on gps/chartplotter or basic nav skills- flat as a pancake. The first things you'll see are the trees and brush, then the few multi colored buildings at the end of the channel where the mooring field is located. As Zanshin says- definitely non-commercialized and has more of a homey feeling.

GufShoz - I love Anegada as it as about as secluded as one can get in the BVI. The northern shores and beaches are pretty with some good snorkeling between beach and reef, the charter crowds don't get there quite as much as other places. The entrance through the reef is a bit narrow and tricky (which is why many charter companies put Anegada out of bounds except for those who had already been there), but if one follows the recommendations it is a piece-of-cake. Anegada has shoreside restaurants (The Anegada Reef Hotel and Potter's-by-the-sea right at the anchorage) but isn't as commercial as other places. It is the only place in the BVI where you can see the sun setting without other islands blocking the view!

What's everyone's opinion on going to Anegada?

Re: BVI's must see

I know this is an old post but I thought I would add our info from a couple years ago. We did St. Vincent and the Grenadines in 2010 but are returning to the BVIs for St. Patty's day in 2013.

And I just received my packet from Ed Hamilton.

We liked the following:
The caves(Norman)
The baths(go early in the morning and pickup a mooring near the cove)
Foxy's Taboo(Little Jost)
One love bar(Jost)
Willy Ts and Pirate Cove(Norman)

Next time will likely skip:
Cooper I

Next time will try to get to:
Cane Garden Bay
Foxy's(although we met Foxy through a local we hung out with)

You will not have time to go to Anagada but it isn't that special. We enjoyed the snorkeling and dinner but it is a flat sandy island unlike the rest of the islands.
