This spot was great for pic ops and just randomly walking around the rocks and tunnels. Water was amazing and the beach on the backside had spots to jump from rocks and relax also. Loved this area!

Have been here a number of times. I'm glad that there are no dingies allowed on the the beach anymore . It's much safer now that swimmers done have to try and dodge the dingies that used to be abandoned on the beach. We swam from the boat ,walked through the caves and snorkelled back to the boat The snorkelling... More

This is a gorgeous sight, well worth the trip. The guides were friendly and knowledgeable, even bringing rum punch to the beach! The walk through the rocks and caves is fairly easy, though there were some slippery spots. The stretch of beach at the end of the trail is breath-taking & seemed very private-our group was the only one there.... More

Wandering through the rocks, swimming, just an amazing place. Pick your time wisely though, so you avoid the cruise ship crowds on Tuesdays.

This is an awesome place to visit, with fabulous rock formations to walk through in beautiful crystal blue water. Pictures don't do it justice. This is a place you have to see!!

It was impossible to swim or dinghy to the shore as there was a strong cesspool close to the shore. Our 50 ft. sailboat was almost spinning. We took a taxi from Spanish town and approached the Baths just 30 min before sunset. This was breathtakingly beautiful. We walked narrow paths (barely one person wide) through the rocks despite the... More

We took a cruze ship to Tortola then a ship's excursion to the Baths of Virgin Gorda.. We took a small boat on the very nice ride from Tortola to Gorda. Then things got difficult. We took a long walk downhill on very steep steps (mostly tree roots) untill we finally reached the baths. There is a consession stand that... More

The blend of these huge boulders and caribbean blue water is simply amazing. Then to be able to walk under them and play in the water is so much fun. Great fun!

I enjoyed my first trip to the Baths so much several years ago that I decided to revisit. Took a day trip from St John. Unlike the perfectly magnificent day on my first trip, this day was met with torrential thunderstorms. It certainly didn't dampen (no pun intended) the day. I've now had the opportunity to see the Baths in... More
