Anegada General Information

Posted on December 12. 2012

Overview

Unusually flat for one of the British Virgin Islands, Anegada is most well-known for its stunning reefs and laidback charm. Relatively unspoiled by tourism, Anegada isn’t just a beach destination, although upon seeing its white sand beaches you may be forgiven for thinking so. It is also home to several species of wildlife and animals, namely a large colony of flamingos and is so isolated you’ll think you’re on your own private paradise.

Weather

A balmy and subtropical climate is the year-round norm for Anegada, whose average temperatures range from 77-83 degrees. Evenings can sometimes be a little chilly, but temperatures for both day and night vary very little between summer and winter. Hurricane season can occur between the months of June and November, which also tend to be the rainiest months, but rainfall is usually lower than 50 inches of rain per year on average.

Time Zone

Anegada is in the Atlantic Time Zone which is UTC-4. The island does not observe Daylight Saving Time.
