At only 10 miles (15 km) long by 2.5 miles (4 km) wide, Anegada is affectionately referred to as the ‘drowned’ land for its numerous salt ponds and sunken feel, a mere 28 feet above sea level. If one plans to go to Anegada, they would enjoy miles of white sandy beaches and would eventually spot a Caribbean Flamingo, amongst other wildlife and plant life such as the Anegada rock iguana, Caribbean lobsters, not to mention a variety of fish, turtles, donkeys and cattle, making Anegada a priority destination for zoologists and botanists.
Between Pomato Point and Setting Point is an anchorage that is a favorite amongst sailing and yachting enthusiasts. There is also a wide selection of nearby places to enjoy Caribbean cuisine and drink. For a romantic moment, the sunset over the Setting Point Anchorage is a sight that will stay with you until the end of your days.
Anegada is flanked by the famous Horseshow Reef which, by its mammoth size spanning 18 miles (29 kilometers) long is amongst the largest coral reefs in the world.
Getting there can be done by either boat or plane, with Captain Auguste George Airport located on the middle of the island. You can catch cheaper (but not cheap) flights to and from Tortola, take a flotilla that sails from the North Sound, or enjoy a cocktail on the more popular mode of transportation - the ferry.
