New Years Eve at Anagada?

We are looking for a less crazy experience but still some good company, food and drink. Any advice?

Re: New Years Eve at Anagada?

There's almost no one there so anyplace is going to be low-key. All of those places right there at the anchorage are good. As you come ashore one can walk straight in and find yourself on an unpaved road. Turn left and you'll find a place about half a mile down that has a nice bar. It also houses the "Museum". Catch a cab to Lobolly beach for one of the best beaches in the Virgins. Great snorkling. The Restaurant there has the best conch fritters I've found.

Have fun! Anagada is one of my favorite places on the planet!

I had a great time one New Year's Eve at the little beach bar near the hotel ( memory dimming ) it was a few years ago, much better then the nonsense at the bitter end and other places. Local guy told me a wind was due at 4am , sure sure I said , but happened to dinghy back anyway. , bam 4:05 got hammered by massive gust , thank god for the Delta as due to lack of space I was way too close to the reef for comfort !!!

Re: New Years Eve at Anagada?

goboatingnow - that's Antigua with a beach for each day. Anegada has only a couple of beaches, but they surround the whole island and are rather empty!

KW60 - New Year's or Old Years' as they often call it in the BVI is low key at Anegada. There are two main restaurants in the anchorage - the Anegada Reef Hotel and Potter's by the Sea and both will be open. I had planned on spending New Years at Anegada this year (last year was Leverick, the year before Saba, the year before Trellis...) but won't be back in the BVI in time.

It is worth staying a couple of days at Anegada and on the beaches, it is the most laid back atmosphere in the BVI.

For additional information you could post your question at Traveltalkonline: Viewing forum: British Virgin Islands where a couple of Anegada residents also hang out.

Re: New Years Eve at Anagada?

Thanks for the video - only 2 more weeks and I'll be at Potter's bar - I still have a credit of a couple of hundred (from when he pre-sold dinners in order to raise cash to rebuild his dock after the hurricane tore the old one away) and need to drink it up

Revisiting old thread -- Anagada for NYE not bad. We are going back soon -- mid March. Is fresh lobster available this time of year? Is Neptunes still in business?
