Took a ferry from St. Thomas to Virgin Gorda to visit the baths.. Water was a little rough at the baths but the beach was gorgeous!!

I went there 10 years ago on another bareboating trip, and in the last 10 years it has been overrun by cruise ship tourists. Don't get me wrong, it is BEAUTIFUL and totally worth it, but it is definitely deteriorating due to the high volume of crowds. Not to mention it just ruins the whole secluded beach feel when you...

you're climbing over, under and around huge rocks...sometimes crawling on hands and knees to get to Devil's Cove on the other side of the baths great photo opportunities....but poor snorkling on the other side at Devils Cove suggest that you travel light...wear sneakers...or shoes that you don't care if they get wet

What a great way to spend a day. Nothing like hanging out at the beach and seeing things you may never again be able to see. Stunning location, and would definitely go back!

Cost is $3/person and the ferry from Tortola is $38 which is round trip and taxi to the Baths - 3 miles. Lunch can be included for another $10 but eat at the restaurant at the top of the Baths with a great view and pay $4 more. The included lunch is not until 2 o'clock and is in town... More

Went to the Baths for a day during our stay in Tortola. Took the ferry over. It was great snorkeling. We brought our own masks and fins. Pack lightly - there are lockers but they are very small and only a one time use. Most people stored their bags and left their towels out on a rock. Find out what... More

My husband and I moored for the day at The Baths. This is a national park that allows day moorings only. There is a specific area where you can dock the dinghy near the entrance to The Baths. The water is deep and many people wore life jackets as they swam the distance to land. The currents are moderate to... More

If you are staying on the island and want to avoid the "crowds" from cruise ship day trippers, visit this beach early in the day or late afternoon. The rock formations are stunning and fun to explore with kids or as adults. During one of my trips snorkeling around The Baths I actually saw an octopus that had swallowed a... More

It is an adventure going through the rocks at The Baths. You need to be somewhat physically fit to bend over to go through small entries and to hold a rope while climbing over rocks. I think it would be horrific to be in these cramped spaces during "prime time" when it's full of tour groups but in the morning... More
