In over ten stops to Anegada, this is our favorite place for playing on the beach, snorkeling, and having a great casual lunch. It's best to arrive late morning, place a lunch order, then head to the beach. There are chairs and palapas for shade just in front of the restaurant. This is the best stretch of sand in the...

My husband had the chicken roti (no goat available) and I had the shellfish sandwich, for lunch. The roti was good (but not the best ever), and the shellfish sandwich was different (not like an oyster po-boy, but like a tuna sandwich with more flavor). We didn't have any alcoholic beverages, but I'd try one next time around. The beach... More

We'd not visited Flash of Beauty beach before but found this restaurant rather charming. Service was friendly and food good too. We ordered our food and arranged to swim while it was being prepared. My husband's goat curry was excellent as were the ribs that I chose. The normal beach that most people go to is Loblolly so you have... More

Monica was for us the best dining experience. The other places are good. But Monica was still the best. Her cooking is fabulous. I have never had a better prepared grouper anywhere in the world.

Heard about the Roti had to try it. Excellent! Highly recommended and we will be back! The owner is from Trinidad and knows how to cook a curry. Flavorful and no heat.

We arrived by run-down bikes (having rented them near our sailboat). It was crazy hot outside and were were absolutely by the time we arrived. Granted, we would have eaten just about anything at that point. This place didn't look like much, but we didn't care. All that to say, we blown away by how delicious and fresh the food... More

Flash of Beauty is our favorite snorkeling spot in the BVI's. The current can be strong but if you walk up the beach and drift back it is easy even for marginal swimmers. Monica, the owner, is a wonderful host and makes the best painkiller and chicken roti anywhere in the BVI's. It is a beautiful and quiet beach unless... More

Always great to hang out at flash of beauty. Monica the owner and the scruffy cat are always so helpful and pleasant. The gang tried bushwackers, a frozen drink, Al over BVI and said hers was the best. The snorkeling is great there, but the most current of any place on anegada.

I love this place and try to visit every time we come to Anegada. It does without doubt the best roti's in the BVI. The service is slow. The restaurant is often empty. It has a very help yourself attitude and it is definitely worth a visit and adapting to the Caribbean pace in this lovely seaside restaurant.

The fried conch was delicious! It was tender and lightly battered with a tasty sauce. The conch is caught fresh/locally so you can't get much better. Others had the mahi fish sandwiches and raved about them. Flash of Beauty is all about snorkeling and hanging out on the beach, looking at the beautiful coral and ocean, so just go to... More
