Stopped here on April 6th while on a cruise excursion from Tortola.Small hike downhill from the parking lot to the beach but well worth it. Just a beautiful and scenic beach to visit. Do not miss if you're in Tortola or near the British or American Virgin Islands.

I loved The Baths at Virgin Gorda! The boulders are huge, beautiful, and one can go inside between the boulders in shallow water. The beach is nice, they have lockers if one wants to snorkel too. Devils Bay and Spring Bay nearby are also great. Definitely a place to see!

Be careful BVI put a float rope across Devils Bay entrance and now a hearty 1000+ ft swim in surf is required. 2 drownings in 1 month as a result. Be careful!

We cruised from St. John to see the Baths. We had to swim to shore and back to the boat (didn't see a dock anywhere) which added to our advenutre. What an amazing place, all those huge boulders tumbled on each other forming a walk-through cave. Worth seeing. It was, however, very crowded. We had to wait to go through... More

This place is a dream before 9 AM and after 4:30 PM. The unique boulders, sugar-white beaches and famous sea-grotto 'Cave' to Devils Bay, make it justifiably one of the world's most famous beaches. If you are going to the Virgins, you simply must see it, from a sailboat or from the cool walk down from Top of the Baths.... More

We visited the Baths at Virgin Gorda last week and fell in love! The water was beautiful with clean white sand beaches. The huge boulders on the shore are very interesting. The wall through the caves to devils bay is very worth the walk. Devils bay is a larger beach with a lot less rocks in the shallow water. Both... More

Should have spent more time exploring. Didn't love the commercial shops right on the beach. Took away from the beauty of the place.

If you're in the the Virgin Islands, you've got to check out these beaches. They can be a little busy with cruise passengers at times, but it's one of those places you have to get to.

A must-see if you are in BVI's. An easy 5 minute walk down to the boulders on the sand. We were lucky though as 50 school children were coming out as we were going in. Sadly we didn't have time to do the walk through the cave - you need at least 20 minutes for it and we hadn't realised... More
