Anegada BVI is different from the rest of the British Virgin Islands as it is not a volcanic island. It’s just a build-up of coral that has formed over eons into an island that is continuously shifting. The highest land mass on Anegada is only 28 feet above high tide. Shallow fringing reefs surround Anegada. You do not see any sight of land until you are halfway there. This 15 square miles of island is hard to spot! Anegada will be on your BVI charter yacht itinerary after you have been to Virgin Gorda, with it being a 2-3 hour sail.
