Anegada, meaning 'drowned Island' measures 10 miles long and is only
about 28ft. above sea level at its highest point. Made up almost entirely
of coral reefs the scuba and snorkeling here are phenomenal. Only a small
amount of people call Anegada home, due to its remote geography. With no
easy way to anchor a boat near the island, most people fly in to the small
airstrip located here. A view from the air, one can truly see the distinguishing
characteristics of this tropical paradise. Huge salt ponds line the interior
of almost half the island, often attracting huge flocks of pink Flamingos.
Around the exterior of the Island lie the world famous Horseshoe Reef, stretching
18 miles long, making it one of the world's largest coral reefs.
