Naturalists will appreciate the rare native rock iguanas and the flocks of flamingos.
Once found throughout these islands before disappearing entirely, flamingos were re-introduced to Anedaga in the late 1980s through a cooperative effort between the National Trust and the Bermuda Aquarium and National History Museum and Zoo.

The island's main town, The Settlement, is home to most of Anedaga's 180 residents and is surrounded by an old coral stone wall that is hundreds of years old. The Anedaga Museum charts the islands history with maps of shipwrecks and stories of buccaneers.
