There's plenty of sand and large boulders for swimming, snorkeling, and just hanging out. If you like snorkeling, there's plenty to see. Get away from shore, head for the rocks, and either end of the beaches to see the fish and eels. It's a 5-10 minute walk to the main road, if you travel by taxi.

I am not sure how many people know about this secluded bay as most head directly to The Baths or end up at Devil's Bay. Very nice small beach with boulders sheltering the bay from waves. It is very easy for young children to enjoy. Our kids had fun jumping into the water from the rocks.

Beautiful cove, not crowded. Very good spot for children to snorkel and swim. Walk down the beach to do the trail through the caves and then retreat here for a quiet beach.

We were lucky enough to stay next to Spring Bay and while we watched the almost constant truckloads of people going up to the Baths and Devils Bay, every day at Spring Bay was quiet and wonderful. If it's your first time to Virgin Gorda, the Baths are a must see, but after that, go to Spring Bay, hang out... More

Such a wonderful place for a picnic and snorkeling. Better than the Baths which can be very crowded when the cruises come in.

Perfect to relax and snorkel. Very pretty. Was there with family last week. Consider taking a waterproof camera since the dinghy should not go to the beach and you will have to swim a little.

Wonderful beach right next to Guava Bay resort. A very nice walk down from the parking area. Very close second to the Baths. And GREAT when the Baths are so crowded you can't find a parking space.

We tried to go tho the Baths and it was packed. We couldn't even park so we left. Went 1 min down the road to Spring Bay and it was amazing!! So quiet and serene. There were maybe 20 other people there and it was gorgeous! Skip the Baths and go here.

Spring Bay was my favorite beach because of all the rocks, channels, caves and "private pools". Parts of it are similar to The Baths, but there are very few people there. There are plenty of picnic tables in the shade, and the parking is not too far. There is also a path to the right to another beach (Little Trunk... More
