Spend the days walking up and down the beach, letting your skin develop a deep brown tan. Dive soundlessly into the cool water and grab some abalone – or at least pretend to be an abalone diver as you snorkel atop the crystal clear turquoise paradise, and watch the underwater heavens look up at you from below.
Are you looking for some of the most amazing attractions on the island of Anegada? Then come on down to this tropical island pleasure center and find out all of the amazing things to see while on your exotic Caribbean vacation.
Okay, so this isn’t Paris, Mexico City or Beijing or even a place where you are likely to find the world’s most comprehensive art collection – but the attractions that you will find here are pretty darn impressive, especially for a tropical island.
In fact, the natural history of this island – and the fascinating way in which it collides with man – has led the island to produce some amazing historical artifacts.
It’s here that happy Island vacationers like you will be able to get to stand in one of the lowest points in all of the Virgin islands – British as well as United States – and thereby experience the these volcanic wonders in all their tropical glory.
To give some perspective, the island of Anegada can be described as a blip of white streaking through the sea like a lighting bolt. And it’s on this stretch of island pleasure (11 miles long and 3 miles wide) that you can look out upon blue Caribbean from which tall green islands emerge, massive and gemlike, each one lording itself over its surrounding, watery kingdom – yet each one uncannily demure. Experience the sensation of seeing something that you’ve never really seen before.
Some of the must-see sights in Anegada include the fantastic tourist attractions listed below. Full of amazement charm and dumbfounding oddity, you’ll never be bored whenever you decide to wake up from your island bliss and decide to, like, check things out:
Anegada’s Underwater Sights
One of the most impressive underwater attractions that can be found on the island of Anegada is the RMS Rhone. This famous ship was actually a direct mail carrier that got itself brutally destroyed in the famous, and never-to-be-forgotten 1867 hurricane. Divers from around the world love to come here and check it out – all the time.
But if you’re looking for something a little more artificial, then dive down and explore Pat. This should ship was intentionally sunk expressly for the purpose of divers getting the opportunity to explore an amazing – although not authentic-shipwreck.
When I think about Pat, I have to say to myself, at least for a moment, “Oh, come on!” I mean, with 500 shipwrecks waiting to be explored in one of the Caribbean’s most dangerous reefbeds, wasn’t it just a little bit unnecessary to go and sink another one, just for the fun of it?”
Perhaps. But they did it anyway, and, well, here we are! After diving down to Pat, though, you might realize that it’s actually a lot more interesting than many of the other ones, and so you can start to see their point.
Be sure not to miss the gutter reef. Why? Well, it’s only the third largest in the entire world and – divers check this out – because of this reef, Anegada has one of the highest number of shipwrecks in the world. Perfect.
