Crewed Charters, Anegada BVI:
Anegada is a flat white sand island with 16 miles of
white sand beaches, the best fresh lobster and a paradise
for divers. Ancient ship wrecks and reefs have been
enhanced with colorful formations of exotic undersea
plant and animal life.
Anegada comes from the Spanish word for sunken land;
it is a coral island with its highest point only 28
feet above sea level, covering 15 square miles it can
barely be seen on the horizon when approached by sea.
It's known for its miles of endless white sand beaches
and the horseshoe reef, which in years past has ensnared
hundreds of shipwrecks ranging from sixteenth century
treasure ships to modern cargo vessels. Anegada was
quite popular with the pirates because of its dangerous
reef and difficult access, the island provided seclusion
as well as a steady supply of ships to loot as they
wrecked on the reef.
Today this reef makes the island a popular dive area,
and snorkeling on and around the reefs of the north
shore is quite breathtaking and should not be missed
by anyone visiting the island! Guided Bonefishing expeditions,
vehicle rentals and taxis are also available. There
is a small population of about 150 people living on
the island. Efforts to keep the island as close to nature
as possible have resulted in the recent introduction
of a sanctuary for flamingos, ospreys, and terns supervised
by the National Parks Trust.
