The walk through the grottoes is truly a wonder. There are several areas were you need to pay attention to your footwork, but nothing too taxing. Don't forget to lollygag along the way and spend time playing in the deeper pools, and don't forget to turn around to catch a glimpse of Shamu rock! Once you reach the gorgeous beach... More

Well worth doing but you need to be physically fit to do the whole thing. Great snorkeling and super views. Easier at low tide see fishes and lots of crabs living in te rocks. Was a GREAT ADVENTURE !! Kida loved it and you can hire a guide to take you throught it.

Awesome! Take the walk through the Baths, the grottos never disappoint. Be careful on the ladders, planks and ropes, it can be physically difficult!

I read a lot about the baths before coming to the island but no picture really shows you how beautiful it is until you see for yourself. Make sure to buy water shoes!

I have never seen such crystal clear water in my whole life, and that includes swimming pools. The rocks were a joy to navigate, the snorkeling was fun (mostly fish, not much coral). In the morning and late afternoon, we had devils bay to ourselves. In three days we went 5 times. Put it on your bucket list now!

The Baths remain one of the most beautiful spots in the BVI. This inevitably results in large numbers of visitors, and drastically diminishes the "South Seas" appeal of the site. But go early in the morning - or late in the afternoon - and avoid the day trippers. Floating around and over the huge boulders to enjoy the underwater scenery... More

Before we visited the Baths, the wife and I were extremely concerned with the rough "rock climbing" we had read about. I will say that this is nothing even close to a laborious walk. We walked down to the Baths with a 2 year old boy in about 10-15 minutes. It was extremely easy, and completely worth it. When you... More

We had chartered a boat for a day and the Baths was on our must see list. He grabbed a mooring ball and we swam to shore to start our Baths adventure. All 4 of us enjoyed the climb through the amazing rock formations. We did a little snorkeling when we were done. Don't miss having a cocktail at the... More

I came to The Baths at Virgin Gorda while on an 11-day cruise through the Caribbean. Mind you, I am used to some beautiful beaches being from Florida, but The Baths takes the cake as my absolute favorite. We did not take the cruise ship's excursion, but instead made it to the Baths ourselves from Tortola via a really nice... More

I've been to the BVI three times and this is always a must on our itinerary. I love taking the walk through the giant boulders. The sunlight streaming through to the turquoise water is just lovely. There have been a couple of changes since I was there last. You can no longer take your dinghy all the way to the... More
