Located on Anegada's northern shore, this is one of the best shore-entry snorkeling spots in the Caribbean, where visibility can exceed 100 feet on a calm day.

Loblolly beach has two restaurants, the Big Bamboo was a welcome sight after a day at the beach. Hammick swings for the old and young to relax in ... open air lunch and delicious frozen drinks!

Cool reef and good drinks. We hung out most of the day, stopped at the gift shop, hung out on the beach and under the trees. It was peaceful and beautiful.
