Anegada is a not to be missed destination during the sailing yacht charters in the Caribbean islands. You can watch the sun disappear into the surf that breaks on the reef surrounding Anegada. For centuries ships have been lost on this treacherous reef, but these wrecks provide a boon for today's visitors. They are home to countless exotic fish and marine life, making Anegada a paradise for scuba divers and snorkellers. Bubbling up from the coral bed, clear springs support a variety of wildlife. Loblolly, seagrape, frangipani and the turpentine tree flourish here, along with feathery sea lavender and wild orchids. Saltwater ponds, mudflats and mangrove swamps are home to an array of exotic birds, including sandpipers, ospreys, terns, kaloo birds, blue herons and frigate birds. In the ponds near Nutmeg Point, flocks of flamingos gather.
On the nature trail at Bones Bight, catch a glimpse of the rare rock iguanas native to Anegada. For snorkelers, the reef offers a maze of tunnels, drops and caves boasting a rich marine life. Schools of mojarra and needlefish thrive in the sandy bottoms, while green sea turtles swim in the sheltered waters. Beyond the reef, spectacular sights await scuba divers. Angelfish, stingrays, triggerfish, parrotfish, blue tang and horse-eye jacks inhabit the drowned holds of the numerous Spanish galleons, American privateers and British warships that have been wrecked here. Anegada has all the facilities needed for most water sports, as well as bonefishing and sport fishing. Anegada is an island of coral sand, and its beaches are among the loveliest in the Caribbean. And they're so deserted, chances are you won't see another set of footsteps on the sand. But you can always find a shady spot at a beach side bar to sit and sip a cool drink.
