I agree with Zanshin... Trellis, The Bight, and North Sound VG are all good in a north swell.
Also, White Bay on Jost is really nice in a north swell (anchor on the west side by Soggy Dollar). It's crowded during the day with all the party boats, but they clear out by late afternoon so there's lots of room. Plus, you're only in about 10 feet of water
, so you don't need a ton of swing room.
Also, another White Bay (on the south side of Peter Island) is a good protected anchorage - and almost always really quiet. You can anchor
off the beach with no problem.
Starchaser mentioned that it's hard to anchor in the Bight due to all the moorings. Go right up to the front of the mooring
field (by the newly renovated Pirate's Bight) and there's room to the north of Pirate's Bight's dock
and also over by the concrete dock
. We've anchored there many, many times.
(ALSO, when at the Bight, snorkel along from the concrete dock toward the Willy T. It's some of the best, easy snorkeling in the BVI. Way better than either the Indians or the caves, imo. Barracudas, tarpons, rays, conch, and a huge variety of colourful reef fish
. Although when the mooring
field is really full, the water
does get a bit cloudy... ewwww)
