What to do in Anegada

The British Virgin Islands lay spread out where the Caribbean joins forces with the Atlantic, intermingled with the U.S. Virgin Islands, though decidedly less developed. Anegada is no exception; in fact, it’s one of the sparsest BVIs of the lot. Accessible only by ferry from nearby Virgin Gorda, Anegada is fiercely different—it formed from an exposed coral reef, as opposed to remnants of an ancient volcano like the others, and appears flat with a sandbar-like landscape, while the rest are mostly forested hills. The island is so low (just 28 feet above sea level) that boat captains frequently misgauge their decent ashore, so much so that hundreds of ships wrecked in earlier years. Today, combined with a brilliant reef and an active marine life, it’s an epic adventure for those who like to spend their vacation underwater.
