We spent a week in VG and liked this beach the best. Be careful though, my 18 yo son and I swam outside the big rocks and we shouldn't have. There are facilities for grilling, bring charcoal, steaks and chicken!

We stayed at Guavaberry Spring Bay and we are glad we did since the "home" beach was Spring Bay and it is superb, we think the best on VG. The beach was broad and had lots of soft sand. There were big boulders just like at the Baths and some of these were in the water and provided for some... More

Virgin gorda is a magical place. Spring bay is turely a special creation. It has remain the same for the past 34 years. The boulders are massive against the clear blue waters of the Caribbean sea. You need to blink twice to make sure your not dreaming.

Similar scenery as the Baths. But, plenty of beach space, even a bit of shade. Nice snorkeling around the rocks. No entry fee (unlike the Baths). We saw lorry after lorry of cruise ship passengers being driven out to the Baths and decided to go to Spring Bay. Glad we did.

This idyllic bay is easily reached by snorkeling from the right side of the Baths or by car (entry before the Baths). There is a short 5-minute walk from the parking lot to the beach. There are picnic tables available, and some shade around to the left (in front of Guavaberry vacation homes). The best snorkeling is around the boulders,... More

This beach is much nicer, easier to navigate and less crowded than the baths. There is a shaded area with some picnic tables.

When I visited the Baths for the first time 2 years ago, I fell in love with its unique scenery. We were on a boat tour so had only a short time to spend, so when I began planning the St. John trip for this past Christmas, I knew Virgin Gorda was definitely on the list. Since there are 6... More

View and snorkeling. Great to start at the Crawl, swim to Spring Bay, or all the way to the Baths. Really gorgeous!

Exquisite beach but use caution, we swam in from the boat to Spring Bay and were stung by jellyfish, one of the teenagers pretty badly and she was almost on shore when stung on her arm and legs. We heard it is hit / miss on the jellyfish, sometimes there are not any then like the day we were there... More
