The Baths, Virgin Gorda

Virgin Gorda has a population of about 2,500 and is linked to the other islands by a small airport and regular ferry services. The northern half of the island is mountainous with a peak of 1,370 feet, while the southern half is flat and scattered with giant boulders.

The British Virgin Island's most famous natural attraction, "The Baths," a collection of gigantic granite boulders forming a series of spectacular pools and grottoes, is located on Virgin Gorda. A must see when you visit the BVI.

Attractions
The Baths
BVI's most natural attraction, the Baths, are a national park made up of giant boulders forming a series of spectacular pools and grottoes. The grottos create an unusual setting to swim, snorkel and explore. The outside perimeter is filled with colourful fish and coral.
Little Fort National Park
The site of a Spanish fort whose stone walls are still partially intact, the park is located south of the Yacht Harbour. Little Fort National Park also functions as a wildlife sanctuary.
The Coppermine
Located on the southeast tip of the island, it was mined by Cornish miners between 1838 and 1867, and believed to be mined earlier by the Spanish. 19th century stone buildings are still standing for all to see.
Gorda Peak National Park
At 1,500 feet, it is the highest point of the island and contains a wide variety of indigenous and exotic plants and mahogany trees.
Beaches
Devil's Bay Beach
A National Park that is accessible by boat or by walking through the trails of The Baths. The beach is pure white sand with a scattering of large granite boulders. The deep blue waters make it excellent for diving and snorkeling and it's easy to see why this is one of Virgin Gorda's most popular beaches.
Spring Bay Beach
This stretch of white sand is sprinkled with boulders and is also one of Virgin Gorda's most popular beaches.
Mahoe Bay Beach
Located north of Savannah Bay, this is one of the island's most remote and quiet beaches. Lying at the end of a tropically landscaped drive leading to a restaurant, beach resorts and villas; the Bay's blue waters and 2 picturesque reefs afford wonderful water activities.
Trunk Bay
Located on the Virgin Gorda's western shore and considered one of the island's most popular beaches. Trunk Bay is bordered by a private estate and a palm grove, and can be reached by boat or along a path from Spring Bay.
Savannah Bay Beach
A gorgeous long curving stretch of white sand and blue waters, the perfect place to work on your tan and then jump in to cool off. Stay later in the day and see why it's the perfect place to watch the island's spectacular sunsets.
