Agree with the Cow Wreck. We were just there last week. Snorkeling at Loblolly Beach. Not a fan of Potters...music much too loud. The Wonky Dog or Neptune's is great. Great bar at the Anegada Beach Club.

Rent a vehicle from Dean (284-544-3703) drive over to Flash of Beauty to snorkel and have a bushwhacker, drive along the north shore to ABC for a drink. Head to Cow Wreck for the inevitable party and lunch. Stop at Sid's for a drink on the way back to the dock. Great dinner choices with Wonky Dog, Lobster Trap, ARH and Potters. I also agree with breakfast at Neptune's. As said earlier, if you have time, take the tour with Sherwin or Kelly.

Rhindley - Can you expand on why you would skip Anegada?

Thanks -

When the wind is blowing hard the snorkeling is a bit murky, but otherwise Anegada is a good place to chill out at anyone of the beach bars.

had the best day of our week so far on Anegada - Monday afternoon drift snorkeling the Horseshoe reef and a visit to Conch Island with Kevin (picked us up and dropped us back to our boat in the anchorage... then Monday evening dinner & party with the Limbo Dancing crowd at Potters By the Sea... great fun for all of us onboard. The sail up and back was a delight as well with steady easterly 19-20kt winds... Excellent fun had by all. Dont skip it!

You haven’t offered anything positive only negativity. So what are complaining about?

I love Anegada..It may not be for everyone but the only way you will ever find out is to go there..like most things in life. So many armchair critics...so few who get out of the Barca Lounger and live the life..or at least sample it.

Try the wonky dog. The food is outstanding. Finest on the island. We are having dinner there tonight.

Just an FYI there is no better place to eat than the Wonky Dog. Unless you have eaten there you really may think another restuarant was great but eating at the wonky dog is my highlight of my vacation . My favorite is the firecracker shrimp and he lobster is amazing . Let Peter know you heard it from Paul.

Cow Wreck Beach is literally my favorite place on earth. We've heard good things about Anegada Beach Club and plan to stop in next time there. Wonky is always primary but may look for an alternative just to break it up and try something new. Not sure where that will lead us. Knowing us, just back to WD. smile

Wonky Dog is great. Peter is one helluva chef and Desnee always has a great scotch stash. But if you want to try something different check out Sid's. I've had a few meals there and all were very good. He has a very beautiful bar and the sunset from his dining area is nice.

Can you anchor by sids and comfortably come to shore?

I believe it was a Christo post mentioning anchoring out there and have seen boats out there while eating.

Agreed. I certainly don't want to give false information as I have never anchored. Just going by memory. I'm hoping someone else chimes in that has done it already. Hope you are having a great time Warren. Look forward to meeting up with you again in the future.

That is my offer...Anegada isn't woth it to me. Why are you commenting me? You have absolutely nothing to offer the conversation.

For me, it was a lot of hype without much return. Unless you want to do it just to get a decent sail in...there are other places that are just as nice... in my opinion. Like I said, I know I'm in the minority
