I am wondering if anybody has done the beach hiking from Loblolly Bay back to the Setting point, starting westward (towards Cow's Wreck). It is about 10 miles. By looking on Google Earth
it looks mostly sandy beach with a short stretch of rocks.
a) has anybody done this and is it worth the effort? I love the remoteness and the ocean crashing on the reef at Anegada
b) is it advisable to sleep on the beach rather than rushing to do it in one go as I would try to avoid the peak sun hours?
We've done this hike in sections from Setting Point. It is doable, but you'll need a lot of water
. Some of the sections of beach are a bit washed out, so you should plan on a pretty slow pace. You'll pass Keel
Point cottages, Anegada
Beach Club, Cow Wreck Beach Bar and then it is pretty much the occasional cottage until Pomato Point.
Sleep on the beach? I'd just do the hike in sections and sleep somewhere comfortable. If you stay in a cottage at Cow Wreck it could work
