Great place to explore. If you are out of shape you better think twice about going. Lots of climbing on slippery rocks and an uphill climb to get out of the baths. Simply stunning.

If you are sailing to the Baths, get there early to catch a mooring. The wave action makes for interesting viewing and even more interesting snorkeling as you dodge and weave to avoid being washed against the numerous boulders. Good place to moor for lunch.

This place is spectacular.. Big rocks, blue water, white sand simply amazing. Be ready to hike up and down and get lost in the rocks. Devils bay is nice beach to swim. Its worth doing the trail. It gets crowded in the afternoon so be sure to get there early.

Enjoyed a wonderful half day at The Baths. The walk through The Baths is fun to do- great rock formations and great picture opportunities. If you are staying on the Island go in the early morning or mid/late afternoon to avoid the crowds from the cruise ships. Snorkelling was okay but there are better spots on the Island.

Quiet, beautiful, great for snorkeling and hiking. Little Dix Bay will provide you with a picnic lunch if you want and take you over via water taxi. Perfect!

There's something about the huge rocks and the way their grays blend with the blues of the ocean and the green vegetation.

Swimming and hiking around The Baths rocks. Enjoyed a picnic lunch on the beach. Waters are warm, clear and waves are easy to swim.

I have gone 3 maybe 4 times to this place and I have to say every single time I go I feel blessed. There's something about the huge rocks and the way their grays blend with the blues of the ocean and the green vegetation... I just love this place to an extent I can't explain. There is also some...
