When sailing to Anegada on our charters, most guests just stay in the anchorage and visit the restaurants and bars there or travel further to the famous Loblolly Bay or Cow Wreck Beach. There is now another option: Anegada Beach Club (ABC), which is fantastic to visit during your stay on Anegada. We (Kirstie and me) visited them a week ago and we thought it had such a lovely relaxed atmosphere, that we must tell you about it!
STAY FOR LUNCH OR DINNER
Anegada Beach Club is Anegada’s newest bar restaurant and hotel with swimming pool and beautiful beach. The toes-in-the-sand, open-air restaurant is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner, and the beach bar and lounge deck are open daily for a nice cocktail on the beach with beach loungers in the shade.
The poolside restaurant has friendly and efficient staff. Freshly caught local lobster, conch and trigger fish are always on the menu. For lunch, try the burgers, gourmet pizzas, coconut cracked conch, conch fritters, conch ceviche, nachos, and specialty sandwiches like their special Anegada BLLT – a Bacon Lettuce & Tomato with Grilled Lobster! The Fine Dining menu features Steaks, Seafood, Pastas, Pork Ribs, Curry, and of course, Fresh Lobster!
When weather permits, the BVIYC office staff will give you the OK (always call in) to sail to Anegada on your charter, which is best to sail from the Gorda Sound and is an easy 2-3 hour trip.
There is a daily Service from Virgin Gorda with the Anegada Express. You can leave your boat in Virgin Gorda and visit Anegada for a day. You also can take the Tortola Fast Ferry from Road Town, Tortola on Monday, Wednesday and Friday in the morning or afternoon.
Once in Anegada, there is a free complimentary shuttle, which will pick you up at the dock at the Lobster Trap Restaurant (same owner) in the Anchorage, whether you’re just coming for lunch or staying for a week. The shuttle also can pick you up from the ferry dock or airport.
If you want to stay longer, Anegada Beach Club offers amazing hotel rooms and romantic “glamping” accommodations!
Experience “Glamping” in the Beachfront Palapa Retreats for one night or ten. The resort features seven uniquely designed and beautifully appointed Beachfront Luxury Palapas b raised above the dunes overlooking a pristine, powder sand beach which stretches uninterrupted for miles around the island. Palapas are equipped with a king canopy bed, a furnished deck, beautifully crafted bathroom with hot shower, and an extra daybed for stowaways. This is a must-have experience!
The resort also offers twelve King Suites and four Twin Suites, which are fresh, spacious and air conditioned, overlooking the only swimming pool on this beautiful island.
