A Swift Voyage to Anegada Island
Leaving behind the charm of Bitter End Yacht Club, we embarked on a 13-mile journey to reach Anegada. Surprisingly, the voyage took just over an hour, making it an easily accessible destination for those seeking a slice of paradise. We joined fellow boaters racing for mooring balls in Setting Point basin, emphasizing the need to arrive early to secure a coveted spot.
Warm Welcome and Culinary Delights
As we arrived, we were greeted by Sam from Potters by the Sea, who serenaded us from his skiff and extended an invitation to dine at his establishment. However, we opted to stick with our original plan and headed to the Anegada Reef Hotel. Seated at seaside tables in the sand, we relished in the pleasure of savoring perfectly cooked 1 1/2 pound lobsters, grilled to perfection on wood-burning grills.
Exploring Pristine Reefs and Island Gems
Before our sumptuous feast, we rented a Jeep and ventured to the northern side of the island, where Loblolly Bay awaited us with one of the world’s largest reefs. Donning our snorkeling gear, we immersed ourselves in the underwater wonders, mesmerized by the vibrant marine life. As we continued our exploration, we stumbled upon breathtaking vistas and discovered the hidden gem of Anegada Beach Club—a stunning resort featuring thatched bungalows nestled right on the beach. The resort’s spa and pool, the only ones on this island, added an extra touch of luxury to our island adventure.
Anegada Island's Off-the-Beaten-Path Charm
Anegada, though off the beaten path, proved to be a treasure trove of natural beauty and tranquil seclusion. The island’s pristine beaches, thriving reefs, and welcoming locals provided an authentic and immersive experience. It was a reminder of the extraordinary rewards that come with venturing beyond the conventional tourist routes.
