Comments Anegada is a great little island in the BVI's, the only coral island amongst the other volcanic islands. The beaches are beautiful, practically deserted. The Anegada Reef Hotel is '60's style motel-type with clean rooms and very friendly employees, great food and very cold beer. There was no mention of a room key when we were delivered to our room (no problem). We had a great time there except for the diving. The reefs are in very poor condition, very little living hard corals; some areas of OK soft corals. All diving is beach diving that is accessed by taxi (they come back at a specified time so you better be there) and is done with a DM who is experienced and capable. But there are only 2 or 3 dive sites, all on the Atlantic side. No mention of Carribbean side diving. They are supposed to get a boat at some time, probably after hurricane season, but from what I understood it will be a zodiac. So, go there for the food and drink and get to Virgin Gorda for the diving.
