It’s what it is, the Baths on the island of Virgin Gorda on The British Virgin Islands, is one of those places that will always be admired or give you that feeling of, “that’s what I paid for”, “this is what I was looking for”. The reality is better than the brochure or the picture that my friend give me... More

My family and I have visited The Baths 4 or 5 times and are always amazed at its beauty. We will stop by again this Dec for our anniversary trip!

On of favorite day trip on our honeymoon. The beach is absolutely amazing. Great snorkeling. If you're adventurous you can venture through the caves to Devil's Bay. It's only a $5 cab ride from the ferry to The Baths. Everyone is really friendly. Also you can rent snorkel gear for $10. It's an amazing day trip.

We made a quick stop at The Baths while en route from Norman Island to Spanish Town on our sailboat tour of the BVI. Dinghy moorings are about 50 yards off shore. Either everyone in your party needs to be a solid swimmer or you will need to paddle the dinghy in. There are too many underwater obstacles and shallow... More

Wade thru waist-high water between giant boulders. In a few minutes you arrive at a beautiful cove for snorkeling and swimming.These huge rocks are piled at the water's edge and seem to have been placed there by some wonder of nature. Definitely a highlight of our trip to the BVI's!

We visited in the off season and it was just us. It was really cool. I could see how if it was full of people, it would completely change the experience. We took our time walking around, exploring. It was really unique and neat, so I would recommend it.

All the tours stop 3 or 4 places (wanted max time at Baths) & were ~$200 pp, & private boat rentals were even more, so we took Speedy’s Thursday 8:45am ferry from Charlotte Amalie, St Thomas ($78 adults, $58 kids - r/t incl port fees) w/our sons, 11 & 13. Virgin Gorda is BVI so need passports & forms. First... More

The day trip from St Thomas was short but worth it. If you can make a full day, do it! Beautiful water with huge rocks in piles you can climb over, and under and swim under if you are daring.

It is just a wonderful place, where you don't even feel the presence of other tourists. Scenic, warm paradise. What else do you want.

Honestly, all I can say is do not miss visiting this place. It is absolutely worth seeing. It is beautiful and well worth the swim up from the boat. My wife and I really enjoyed walking and climbing through the baths, and we will return soon.
