Some more out of the way anchorages I've enjoyed:

Norman Island - Soldier and Benures Bays

Peter Island Key Bay and White Bay

Cooper Island - Hallovers Bay

Virgin Gorda - Savannah Bay - Near the entrance to get behind everyone and not see them out of your cockpit, or work your way into Tetor Bay to the north and anchor in the middle of the very large sand spot. (Follow the sand highway a hundred feet or so out from the dock) I've never seen another boat up there. Great snorkeling, but you are in front of some buildings.

Virgin Gorda - long bay.

Great Camanoe - Bails Ground - Sand way up in SE corner to anchor in. Great cave on the point between there and Lee Bay. Much better than anything at "The Caves" Lots of minnows, game fish, pelicans and wild goats on the steep bluffs. (My personal favorite, less visited anchorage)

Sandy Spit - Popular by day, and unfortunately people are finally figuring out the anchor holds just as well if you stay for the night. - snorkel or dive through the gap between Little Jost Van Dyke and Green Cay and explore the ocean side of those two islands. Alternatively anchor off the beach on Little Jost Van Dyke and probably have it to yourself.

Cane Garden Bay - not really off the beaten track, but a quieter place with land side services. Anchor behind all the moorings and watch the sunset from your cockpit with no other boats behind you. A good place to buy those few provisions you missed at initial provisioning.

Trunk Bay, on the north shore of Tortola has a beautiful beach for a day stop and is rarely visited. If there is any north swell, you may have to anchor outside the surf zone and swim in.

Great Tobago has a bit of a bay on the west side which is unlikely to have visitors, but you want just the right conditions and probably 2 anchors to keep you over the coral in the middle of the bay without anchoring in it.
