The Baths National Park, Virgin Gorda, BVI
View Original Description
An unusual geologic formation known as "The Baths" located on the southern end of Virgin Gorda island which makes Virgin Gorda one of the BVI's major tourist destinations.
At The Baths, the beach shows evidence of the island's volcanic origins, as huge granite boulders lie in piles on the beach, forming scenic grottoes that are open to the sea. North of the Baths is the Virgin Gorda Yacht Harbor, formerly owned Little Dix Bay.
The Baths is part of Devil's Bay (The Baths) National Park.
The crowds at the rock pools get thick midday, but an early morning or late afternoon visit allows for a more peaceful views of the bolders. Try to avoid it if you see a cruise ship off the Marina at Spanish Town (brings way too many people).
The Baths is a must day stop. Pinch yourself while there and try to be present. You’ll look at the photos later and won’t believe that you were at such an amazingly beautiful place.
There is a snack bar on the beach, or you can walk up the hill to the Top of the Baths for a full-service restaurant.
Travel as light as possible since there is no place to put your bag while out on the water.
