7 Night Trip to the British Virgin Islands
 Anegada Beach Club
Value: $2,500.00

 Anegada_hero.jpg

The trip of a lifetime! This 7 night stay at the laid back Anegada Beach Club in the British Virgin Islands is for the adventurer at heart. The 'true gem' of the British Virgin Islands, Anegada (which means "drowned land") is unique -- a flat, 15 square mile atoll (island of coral), with the fourth largest coral barrier reef on the planet and beaches of breathtaking powder-like sand and gently lapping waves. Wildlife on Anegada is abundant and within reach – pink flamingos, an iguana preserve and more – attracting those travelling off the beaten path. Sparsely populated with only 200 residents in its main town, the island welcomes tourists, nature lovers, adventurers and fisherman, boasting unspoiled beaches and abundant bonefish, conch and lobster. Snorkle, Dive, or just kick back in one of the world's most exotic locations. Top off a week in paradise with a complimentarty Lobster Dinner for two with a bottle of wine.
