|Anegada is the destination for those who want to be by themselves. It is the only coral island of the entire chain (the others being volcanic) and has the third largest barrier reef in the world. On old charts it was called "the drowned island" in fact Anegada in Spanish means sunken island. At it's highest point, it is only 28 feet above sea level. The area has long been a source of confusion to sailors, who were unaware of the shifting currents. More than three hundred ships have been wrecked off this sleepy island.
The north shore is one non stop beach along which you can walk for miles without encountering a soul. On the south side there are quaint restaurants where, if you have a hankering for fresh lobster, you may feast on a catch by prior arrangement. The sail to and from Anegada is a sailors delight.
