Anegada – British Virgin Islands

You might be wondering why we are talking about sailing in the first place. Well, it’s not a bad idea after all to daydream about many coves along the seashore blowing wind constantly over the wavy tides. If you’re into serious sailing, then you must consider traveling to British Virgin Islands where you’d see many avid sailors and exchange pleasant experiences. There’re over forty islands in total and the place swells with travelers of all kinds to include celebrities, the rich and the famous and avid yachters throughout the year.

You could just check in some wonderful islands like Tortola, Virgin Gorda, Jost Van Dyke and Anegada here. Some shipwrecked islands are also flocked by divers and the population overall is pretty less wherever you intend to go. The bright side to these islands is if you have the adventure blood in you, there’re personal boats that could be hired for a more detailed trip to these inlets.

Anegada

Anegada has a fearful history to its name in that it’s sunk almost 300 or more marine vessels right here. Anegada has its Spanish roots and actually means flooded or drowned. The island is a bit down and its overall height above sea level’s just 28 feet and it’s a difficult task for mariners to get proper direction not before getting trapped in the coral web of the Horseshoe Reef.

If you stroll around, you’d be exploring the island’s beauty with the salt ponds filled with flamingoes, rock iguanas and budding cacti. You could try diving or snorkeling in the clear waters in Loblolly Bay. It’s about a 1-1/2 hour journey from Virgin Gorda to reach here. For accommodations, there are enough guesthouses and restaurants that take good care of you.
