We went to Cow Wreck beach and were greeted by Ann and Andrew at this amazing beach bar. Ann was super friendly and served up some killer rum punch drinks. Andrew was just as delightful, while he searched his new inventory for size S sun shirts. Great place to stop, enjoy the view and the great service. We will be... More

One of the most beautiful beaches I have seen. You can walk for miles. The sand is soft. Loved walking than going for a dip along the way.

Cow Wreck is probably the most famous beach on Anegada. The Obamas visited there recently with Sir Richard Branson. They arrived by helicopter. You'll see a photo posted outside the gift shop! We didn't eat here so can't comment on the food. Bought a couple of T-Shirts in the gift shop and walked the beautiful beach. Walked from Cow Wreck... More

My wife and I have been to Cow Wreck Beach Bar & Grill on five separate trips over the past 15 years. It is quite honestly one of our favorite places on earth. The laid back atmosphere, the friendly people that own and work there are just the beginning of what makes this place great. You can sit under a... More

We keep coming back for the conch fritters and Pina Coladas. Usually crowded with large groups of boat tourists but worth the visit anyway.

Anegada is really remote and is the only island in the BVI without some elevation. It's completely flat. We rented a truck and spent most of the day at Cow Wreck Bay. The locals who own the restaurant were so friendly and accommodating. It's a great beach and you'll find some good food and drinks here.

The beach is amazing. Sand is pure white powder and the water is crystal clear. We always stop by for drinks and lunch. This trip was crab salad and fish sandwich. Tried the cow wrecker (2 was enough). Can't get any better. We enjoyed meeting other guests and do stop by the gift shop, nice things and reasonable. It is... More

We went her to snorkel but all we saw was seaweed. Maybe you had to swim 1/4 mile to reach the reef. Lots of rowdy people too.
