The most important thing to say is get there early! Be there at least between 8 and 9 am so that you can have it almost all to your self. It is a beautiful and enchanting location. Since we were on a cruise ship we arrange a private driver to take us directly to the Baths from Gun Creek, it... More

go early, or go late afternoon to avoid the crowds. This tourist attraction is a must when visiting Virgin Gorda

This is the most amazing beach I have been too and I have been to a lot. To get there is not easy but when you do it is all worth the time and energy. If coming to Tortula don't miss this but you have to allocate your time wisely for the trip. Take the ferry, then a cab ride... More

This was a fun surprise. On our second visit to Virgin Gorda we decided to go see what everyone was talking about. It is definitely worth the walk down to the caves. The huge boulders and walking through the caves is definitely worth it. Be sure to not go on a day that the Cruise ship is in port because... More

We decided to go to The Baths in Virgin Gorda when we were in Tortola on a cruise. We had planned our itinerary, which should have gotten us there before the cruise crowd. We walked over to Speedy's Ferry and bought two round trip tickets ($67usd ferry and taxi included). When we got to the Baths ($3 usd for entry... More

Amazing natural jumbled rock garden with huge house sized boulders that you walk through and climb over while walking through water at the oceans edge. Great restaurant too. Can be packed on cruise ship days so avoid if possible.

Cruising in the Caribbean is always stunning but a trip to Virgin Gorda is out of this world. Follow the paths between the great batholiths down to the sea and make your way between the rocks through crystal clear warm waters and climb rope ladders up the sides of the huge boulders. A once in a lifetime experience in this... More

This place is beautiful. It is something to add to anyone's bucket list. The walk is a bit stressful, definitely for people who are use to climbing.

Beautiful scenery, but too many people and not really good for snorkeling. "Been there done that" comes to mind.

The Baths have been on my bucket list for many years so was excited about our ship excursion there, but unfortunately it was overrun with too many people from cruise ships and smaller sailing vessels. The walk through the caves was stressful as there were people walking both ways in what is virtually a one-way catwalk using ropes and crouching... More
