Walk down from the top of the Baths and do the full bath. At the bottom there is a nice beach to grab a beer and a snack. There are clean bathrooms and it is $3 for adult to use the path.

Seeing pictures prior to our arrival did not do the Baths justice. What an amazing place. To think of the forces of nature necessary to create this place is awe-inspiring. We loved the nooks and crannies we could explore and images created by the stones....More

Spend a morning or afternoon here enjoying the rocks, tunnels, caves, beaches and ocean water. Great place to chill out.

We took Speedy's over from Tortola (arrived via cruise ship) and purchased the ferry with taxi service to the baths. The visit here is worth the trip - such an amazing site, unlike anything we have ever seen. Our family of 5 had a great...More

Go early or late in the day. Cruise ships bring groups so can be very busy. Lovely and so picturesque. Take a back pack dry sack if you’re mooring as swim in not so easy.

Such a beautiful area on the beaches with rock formations and a wonderful trail through the rocks. Had rope and steps to make it fun and safe.

I don't why it's called The Baths, but this turned-out to be a worthy destination when we stopped at Tortola for the day on a recent cruise. The combination of white sand beaches and enormous boulders was quite a sight. Don't bother booking a high-prided...More

You should stop by The Baths if you are anywhere close. The water is a beautiful clear blue and the sand is soft and white. You will enjoy the stop immensely.

This was the highlight of the cruise stop. Amazing rock formations, with challenging trails through the chasms, ending at some sandy beaches. Speedy's was a great tour operator.

This is a must see when visiting Virgin Gorda. We arrived by ferry from another island. Took a short taxi ride up to the baths. Hiked down a little but nice trail. Fun adventure going through the baths. Unbelievable that this was all done by...More

Staying at Sapphire Beach and Marina. Coming this year with husband and kids 14, 16. They have never been to the islands. I bare boated years ago so I remember Foxy's when the bar lights were run on a car battery and the potty was a wood box with a toilet seat on it. LOL. I want them to see the Baths and either Soggy Dollar or Foxy's plus some great snorkeling. We are not opposed to group trip to save money but would be willing to pay for quality tour. Any suggestions from those with teens?

I don't know what company would go to both Foxy's and the Baths but there are plenty of outfits that go to the Baths and then make another stop. Sapphire Marina has Yacht Breakaway & New Horizons Charters; I think they go to Soggy Dollar. I prefer going with fewer shipmates and have gone out a number of times with Stormy Petrel & Pirate's Penny Motor Yachts. They depart from the docks in nearby Red Hook. They have 2 different tours and I think one of them takes in one of the BVI bars. I...More

Sailing Trips that include British Virgin Gorda (4 Replies)
We will be in St. Thomas in December and would like to see British Virgin Gorda Baths. Please advise relative to sailing trips that are good and can be done in one day from St. Thomas. Any hints would be helpful too. Thanks.

Virgin Gorda is over 30 Nautical Miles from STT and usually and upwind beat to get there as well - also Drakes Passage can be quite rough -- to do this on a sail boat in a day is close to impossible ------- this is a power boat trip !!!-------- Saw your other posts and I am looking for a map site I can post for you so you can get an idea of the geography involved.
