At the beach area there was some shade and benches to hold your stuff. The beach was huge and went on for miles. The... More

Visually beautiful, peaceful. However, the reef is dead. There are only rare areas where it shows signs of health.There are fish here to see, but not what one would see on a live reef.

Loblolly is gorgeous! You can walk for miles. Aubry and Diane take care of the surrounding beauty, always welcoming visitors to their piece of Paradise. Big Bamboo serves up fresh lobster, great drinks, and lots of laughter. I have been many times, and it always will remain special in my heart. Stay sweet, and quiet, Anegada, what a gem!!

A spectacular location and great snorkeling. My son spent 10 minutes snorkeling with a sea turtle. The beach is so nice we went back multiple times during our stay on Anegada. The Big Bamboo restaurant has great food and the staff is very friendly. You'll enjoy spending time there.

After snorkeling (not much to see, but the water is great), this is a great place to sit, have a drink and relax. And if I may, I would like to recommend the Bushwhacker. It's kind of like an adult chocolate shake - I am hooked!

Loblolly was very serene, but the staff was not as welcoming as other places. Drinks were good and the beach was peaceful.

The snorkeling here was amazing. Lots of coral right off shore. I felt like I was part of a Discovery Channel show. Saw several coral fish and a stingray. Ate at Touch of Beauty Restaurant right off of the beach. Good burgers and beer! A nice beach to relax on after an afternoon of snorkeling.
