I came to The Baths at Virgin Gorda while on an 11-day cruise through the Caribbean. Mind you, I am used to some beautiful beaches being from Florida, but The Baths takes the cake as my absolute favorite. We did not take the cruise ship's excursion, but instead made it to the Baths ourselves from Tortola via a really nice... More

I've been to the BVI three times and this is always a must on our itinerary. I love taking the walk through the giant boulders. The sunlight streaming through to the turquoise water is just lovely. There have been a couple of changes since I was there last. You can no longer take your dinghy all the way to the... More

This was such a memorable experience! It is very beautiful. We went as a cruise excursion. We snorkeled from the beach and then had fun walking through the caves. It is a unique place to see.

Very picturesque...bring a camera! Path is fairly well marked, lots of photo opps. A small beach is offered, so don't forget your swim suit! At times, the path can be somewhat rugged, so if you have difficulty with walking, whatever the reason, this is not a stop for you. If I return to this island, I would stop here again.

We took the ferry from Tortola and en a collective taxi that took us to The Baths. Its beauty is simply undescribable! It seems as if God had been playing dices with those giant stones. It is a gorgeous spot for snorkelling right by the coast, you don't need to rent an excursion to enjoy all kind of colorful fish.... More

Our family visited the Baths at the Virgin Gorda. By far, this is the most beautiful beach we've ever seen. We walked and swam through the rocks and caves. We visited Devils Point. An absolute must see!

Go early or late to avoid all the knuckleheads...but when you do, it is an amazing place, we had the caves and beach all to ourselves on several occasions. We left the route to explore as many areas as we could but if you do that make sure you can get back.

Some of the best snorkeling that we've done. It was so neat diving between the rocks. Be sure to get a drink or something to eat at the restaurant at the top. You have some great views up there.

A popular stop in the British Virgin Islands. Everyone stops there which makes it a little crowded, but still worthwhile. Great fun to snorkel around and through the huge boulders.

This is a beautiful, albeit often crowded, place. Get there early. By the time noon rolls around, it's too packed with tourists coming over on day boats from the US Virgin Islands. 20 years ago when I visited for the first time, the paths and the beaches were fairly untouched. Now the path down to beach is a bit built... More
