Anegada is the northernmost of the British Virgin Islands. Unlike the others islands, which are mountainous, the island of Anegada is flat. It’s highest point is just over 28 feet above sea level, and the island is about ten miles long and ringed by lovely, white sand beaches. The island is surrounded by Horseshoe Reef, which has caused hundreds of ship wrecks. It is this reef which gives Anegada terrific snorkeling and diving, and a bountiful assortment of fish, lobster, and conch. The main community on Anegada, the Settlement, is on the south shore of the island, and is home to a hundred or so people.
