Anegada

Breathtaking blue and shimmering turquoise waters envelop the white sandy beach of this ‘castaway’ island. Anegada, meaning, “drowned (or sunken) island” by the Spanish, is renowned for its secluded beaches, lobster festivals and coral reefs.

The island’s highest point reaches only 28 feet, essentially sea level, making it a great destination for yacht charters in the BVI. The island is protected by the famous 18-mile-long Horseshoe Reef, which is the largest coral reef in the Caribbean.

Once inhabited by Pirates, today Anegada has fewer than 200 inhabitants and boasts miles of empty beaches, marlin and tuna fishing as well as snorkeling.

Yacht charter guests can try a stint scuba diving around the various sunken ships (around 300!) that have met their fate at the bottom of the ocean near this remote island paradise. Take a gander at the San Ignacio, which sunk in the 1700s after this Spanish vessel was hit by English warships or, if you prefer, soak in the waters brimming with mahi-mahi, snapper, bonefish, barracuda and wahoo.
