Located in the beautiful British Virgin Islands, Anegada is definitely a hidden gem with it’s crystal clear water, soft white sand and most importantly it’s serene ocean views. Perfect place to get off the grid, literately.
After discovering that our sister Island offers the choice of glamping, Danielle and I were eager to visit and have our first girls only staycation.
Glamping; is a portmanteau of glamour and camping and describes a style of camping with amenities and, in some cases, resort-style services not usually associated with “traditional” camping.
Private boat | 40mins+
Ferry | 60mins+
V.I Air Link | 5mins+
We opt to fly over with VI Air Link, after all what better way to start our glamorous staycation than in style. I should also add that the view is breathtaking.
Booking your Tent:
Head over to Anegada Beach Club website for available dates.
Once we landed on Anegada, Our host Jen was awaiting us on the tarmac with her pickup truck and so begin our 15min journey to the resort.
Once we arrived at Anegada Beach Club Resort, Jen helped us feel more at ease by giving us a tour of the resort and the tent guidelines, then it was off to have breakfast while she took care our luggage.
After breakfast, we made a bee line straight to our tent and we were not disappointed!
Here’s what you get:
The tent is deck out with a king size bed and couch ( that also doubles as a bed ), a private bathroom with a “Rain” shower head ( fresh towels etc. ), a private porch that has a hammock, a table with two lounge chairs, your own private entrance to your tent and path to the beach ( if you have a oceanview tent ) Our neighbour tent had an outside bath tub ( the tent was vacant ).
Once we were completely settled in our tent ( took millions of photos / check in on social media / unpack ) We changed into our swimsuits and headed down our private path to the beach.
At the resort, there is a beach rental station where you can get kayaks, paddle boards, snorkel gears etc. We opt to paddle board the shore’s of the beach for a bit which we then later enjoy relaxing in the crystal water.
After spending most of the day soaking up some sun, we headed back to our tent to relax. We opt to dine in our tent and enjoy the sunset. We ordered the Grilled Anegada Lobster and the Beef Tenderloin, both cooked to perfection!
I woke up just in time for the sunrise and I must say that it was one of the most tranquil moments in my life.
After breakfast, we wanted to do an excursion before our 5pm flight back to Tortola. Being that the day was Sunday, most places were closed however we managed to book Mr.Kelly to do a reef tour and mini tour of Anegada.
Once we were out into the water, Kelly took us to one of his favorite reef spots to snorkel.
Sorry guys, at the moment I don’t own a GoPro and I forgot to pack my underwater phone case however if you check out his TripAdvisor page you’ll be able to see some beautiful Anegada reef.
The reef is beyond incredible with tons of marine life I wish I was able to snap some photos of.
After snorkeling, Kelly took us to visit the beautiful “Conch Island”. Apparently, it’s about four generations old which he wishes to continue.
After visiting Conch Island, Kelly took us to do some fishing and conch diving. Then it was off to see Flamingo Island.
The flamingos have grown to be my favorite animal after my previous visit to Necker Island, where I was able to meet one up close and personal.
The flamingo island is actually a reef where they march and feed. On Anegada there’s a few ponds that are also home to the flamingos.
After about 2+ hours out in the sea, it was time to bring our reef tour to an end and start the on-land sight seeing.
Kelly gave us a driving tour which he talked about the history of Anegada and took us to see the Rock Iguanas. Not only was our day filled with fun sight seeing under and above water, It was also very informative.
With 5pm drawing near, Kelly was kind enough to take us back to Anegada Beach Club Resort so we can collect our things and offered us a ride to the airport.
My visit to Anegada was more than a success, not only did we had fun glamping but also learning more about our beautiful BVI! I only wish we stayed an extra night, but that just means we will definitely be visiting again!
