Anegada, BVI

Anegada is the northernmost of the British Virgin Islands. It lies approximately 15 miles (24 km) north of Virgin Gorda and is about 55 miles from St. John. Anegada is formed from coral and limestone, rather than being of volcanic origin. While the other islands are mountainous, Anegada is flat and low. It is the only all-coral atoll in the VI and a mere 28 feet above sea level.

day-trip-stjohn-anegada

Anegada, BVI

Anegada is known for miles of white sand beaches and the 18-mile (29 km)-long Horseshoe Reef, the largest barrier coral reef in the Caribbean, and the fourth largest on earth, a watery graveyard for many an unsuspecting wind-tossed ship, it is known to have over 300 wrecks in its waters, some of whose artifacts can be seen in a local nautical museum. Aside from the Lobster for which Anegada is mostly known,  it is also great for surfing, it is the Virgin Island that is most exposed to the swell.

overnight-trip-stjohn-usvi-anegada-bvi

The sand is even whiter and pinker on St. John (since it is of coral and limestone) and that gives the water an absolutely amazing turquoise color. The island is very laid back and relaxed it is amazing how refreshed you will feel after a day or two there. If we need a vacation from St. John, we go to Anegada.

powerboat-charter-stjohn-anegada

The flora, fauna and scenery is very different from the other Virgin Islands, there are pine trees, bushes and sand dunes (like at the French Atlantic Ocean). The sand is very fine and soft and has a pinkish white color. There are salt ponds that host a growing flock of pink flamingoes. The water is very clear and due to the low depth, the colors are just amazing. Check out the photos from Anegada Trips on Facebook below. The food is amazing too, conch and lobster are the best and freshest you can find.

Both accommodation and car rentals on Anegada are reasonably priced. You can rent a car or a scooter to explore the island for about 50$ a day including fuel. Driving is easy, there is basically only one (sand) road going around in a circle and the road is better than many of the St. John roads. You will see cows and flamingos on the the side of the road.

Day Trips to Anegada from St. John

A day trip to Anegada is 1350$ incl. captain and fuel. On a calm day it takes us a little over an hour to get there with our twin Yamaha 250s. We will leave from National Park Dock at 8 AM and head to Tortola West End to check into the BVI's and from there ride along the North Shore and then cut straight over to Anegada and moor the boat at Anegada Reef Hotel. Depending on the ocean and conditions, we have to head back no later than 3pm, maybe earlier.

To truly enjoy and explore Anegada, we recommend an overnight trip (2 days) which is 1950$ incl. captain and fuel. Each extra day you would like to spend on Anegada is 600$. More information and accommodation on Anegada is here: www.anegada-bvi.com. Our list of the top 3 places to visit while on Anegada is here.

Overnight Trip to Anegada

The overnight trip is much more relaxed and gives you time to truly explore the island. It is 1950$ incl. captain and fuel. The crew will sleep on the boat or stay at Anegada Reef Hotel at their own expense. For a cost-efficient option you can stay at Anegada Reef Hotel, basic but clean and newly renovated with A/C or for a truly magical stay check out Anegada Beach Club.

We will leave from National Park Dock at 8 AM and head to Tortola West End to check into the BVI's and from there ride along the North Shore and then cut straight over to Anegada and moor the boat at Anegada Reef Hotel. Depending on ocean conditions we should be there well before noon. You now have all afternoon and evening to explore Anegada (by scooter, taxi or rental car - rental car or scooter is about 50$ per day) and you can have the infamous lobster dinner. The must-see stops are Cow Wreck Beach, Flash of Beauty, Big Bamboo and the Flamingo Pond.

The next day we will leave around lunch time (again depending on ocean conditions) and if you want we can stop at Great Harbour, Jost van Dyke for a great lunch at Corsairs or Foxy's.

B-Line Beach Bar – Day Trip St. John – Jost van Dyke

 

A day trip St. John - Jost van Dyke on our 32 FS Regulator Powerboat can be so much more than just Soggy Dollar. We can for example stop at B-Line at Little Jost van Dyke. It is a charming, low-key bar, that has great drinks, friendly staff on a beautiful beach.

B-Line Beach Bar - Little Jost van Dyke

Their signature drink is the "Passion Confusion" is a mix between a painkiller and a rum punch, with lots of rum soaked pineapple, stop by and try one!

 

b-line-beach-bar-little-jost-van-dyke-bvi

 

They are open from 10am-10pm daily serving ice cold beer and rum drinks. On weekends they serve up the freshest locally caught mahi, tuna, and wahoo. Hot off the grill items include fish tacos, spicy tuna wrap, veggie burgers, kosher beef hot dogs, and their signature dish fish n foil. You can check out their website here.

 

b-line-beach-bar-play-cornhole

 

You won't get bored. You can play cornhole, board games and there also is great snorkeling on the reef that is right around the corner. Oh and don't forget to leave your name on the wooden roof of the bar. Feeling lazy? They also have a soft white sand beach for laying around and doing nothing at all.

 

b-line-bar-jost-van-dyke

 

From there we can head over to Sandy Spit for your personal perfect postcard shot. After a lot of erosion what is left of Sandy Spit is tiny, so make sure you visit it before it is gone!

 

sandy-spit-corona-island-bvi

 

From there we can head to the bubbly pools and then our last stop usually is White Bay, Jost van Dyke. Tired of the Burgers at Soggy Dollar Bar? Try out the other places: One Love, Jewel's and Getrude's have really great meals.
