Deserted beaches, fringed reefs and the unique flora and fauna of the salt ponds, home to the pink flamingo, await your exploration. Lobster dinner on one of the beach resorts is a must. . As darkness falls, with cocktail in hand, you will see from the cockpit of the boat the driftwood fires on the beach grilling your lobster. The open air restaurant in and around the beach promises a dining experience only Anegada can offer. Just another reason why you come to paradise!
A leisurely downwind sail to Jost Van Dyke offers ample opportunity for stopping on the way. Cane Garden Bay, Sandy Spit and Green Cay are all places of exceptional beauty. Just take your pick.
