The most unusual island in the British Virgin Islands is Anegada. While the other British Virgin Islands are volcanic in nature with mountains and surrounded by deep waters, Anegada Island was formed from coral and is only a few feet above sea level.
As a consequence, Anegada Island cannot be seen as you start your sail to it. Anegada Island has few inhabitants and only a few businesses, but it has some of the most spectacular beaches in the BVI. If you do visit Anegada Island, you will need to be cautious on your approach to avoid coral heads and shallow waters.
In these days of GPS, that is much easier than it used to be. But you should ensure that your charter company allows you to sail to Anegada Island before attempting it. Assuming you do visit, there is one obvious point of approach with moorings. You should take a mooring there and dinghy ashore. From there it’s easy to catch a cab to take you to some of the more spectacular beaches on the west end of the island or to a restaurant or beach bar.
