It is just a wonderful place, where you don't even feel the presence of other tourists. Scenic, warm paradise. What else do you want.

Honestly, all I can say is do not miss visiting this place. It is absolutely worth seeing. It is beautiful and well worth the swim up from the boat. My wife and I really enjoyed walking and climbing through the baths, and we will return soon.

When you go to the baths, and when you hike down and get there, go all the way down the beach to where there is a small sign that says don't eat the fruit (apparently it is bad for you). Set your bag down there and go snorkeling right off shore where you are. It is paradise, I felt like... More

This is a must see and do. We took our own chartered boat from St. Thomas to the baths. It was about an hour and half trek and well worth it. Be sure to take a great camera because there are some great photo ops inside the caves!

Simply stunning in and out of the water. Bring your Snorkel gear. You are likely to catch some stingrays grazing and other amazing underwater views.

Interesting place. Not for those folks who are out of shape as travel to and from as well as areas of interest in the Baths is via steep path. Was very crowded but it was worth seeing once. There is a fee for the Baths but a similar beech is on the same road and it just a short distance... More

Great place to explore. If you are out of shape you better think twice about going. Lots of climbing on slippery rocks and an uphill climb to get out of the baths. Simply stunning.

If you are sailing to the Baths, get there early to catch a mooring. The wave action makes for interesting viewing and even more interesting snorkeling as you dodge and weave to avoid being washed against the numerous boulders. Good place to moor for lunch.

This place is spectacular.. Big rocks, blue water, white sand simply amazing. Be ready to hike up and down and get lost in the rocks. Devils bay is nice beach to swim. Its worth doing the trail. It gets crowded in the afternoon so be sure to get there early.

Slippery, dangerous in areas. Was told when we got done that 5-6 people ambulanced out weekly in peak time. we are not mountain... More
