Far to the east in the British Virgin Islands (BVI) archipelago lies Anegada Island. The highest point on this sandy cay is a mere 28 feet above sea level. In fact, the island’s name comes from the low, flat landscape—“tierra anegada,” which means “flooded terrain.” While it’s the second largest in size of all the British Virgin Islands, it is home to roughly 280 inhabitants (the smallest population of all of the populated islands in this chain). The coral reefs surrounding Anegada call for a skilled captain and a shallow draft yacht such as a sailing or power catamaran, but the beauty (and lobster) that await make this an unforgettable island to visit on a private yacht charter.
