The Baths and Virgin Gorda are amazing. It's a pain to get there (about 1 hour from a cruise ship in Tortola) and the trip over there is not inspiring, but the rocks and sea together are breathtaking. Walk through the caves/rocks to Devil's Bay and you won't regret it.

Go early in the morning or late in the afternoon before the crowds come. We went early and basically climbed through the baths by ourselves. Great snorkeling too!

Unique and beautiful area. The amazing Baths have beautiful cave like passages and markings. Snorkeling up to them is unique as well so many fish and fans beneath you.

This place is so beautiful and surreal! However, make sure you bring proper attire. Basically it's made up of rocks, boulders, and caves. The rocks are very slippery, water shoes will help and be careful. Falling will hurt! You may slip. But it is worth every bit of pain. Gorgeous view, it gives you a feeling of peace. I wish... More

If you visit the BVIs, you must visit the Baths. Beautiful and magnificent. Take your time to get lost in the rocks and eventually end up at Devil's Bay

This place is so beautiful and serene. We hiked all the way down to the bar area then thru the devil cave. It was heaven. The huge rocks are unbelievable. To think they were naturally formed that way. Then once we got to the beach it was breath taking. Definately a must see if you are in that town. On... More

Of course, the week we were on VG, the cruise ships were in Tortola only one day, and that's the day we went to the Baths. If you've never been, you have to go see them, but do a little research, and try and find a day when the cruise ships aren't in Tortola.

One of the most beautiful beaches. So unique with large stones and a cave you can walk through to reach another side of the beach. Took a tour here with a cruise ship. Definitley worth the money!
