“So Interesting and Beautiful”
Reviewed November 8, 2012

We were recently lucky enough to get to sail around the BVI's for a week with some freinds and made a stop at here (twice) and it really is amazing. As others mention, there are some tight spots to get through in a couple of places and a little bit of trekking up and down some rocks, but well worth it and nothing too difficult. The pools of water that are created throughout are beautiful with the best being the famous "cathedral" portion and you will find yourself staring at those massive boulders and wondering how they all stay in place. The first time we went was a little before sunset and we nearly had the entire place to ourselves - our second stop by for some others in our group to go was around 10am and a couple tour boats were there which made it crowded and a bit too noisy to really get to enjoy it, so try to go around sunrise or sunset for the best experience.

“Amazing Wonder!”
Reviewed November 7, 2012

Everytime I visit the BVI's I go see the Baths. I love to take someone there for the first time. Boulders as big as houses at all different angles becomes mesmerizing. Seeing what the water and elements have done over the years is absolutely awesome.

“Cool day trip”
Reviewed November 6, 2012

The water was amazing. Crystal clear. It did get a little crowded. It's a must see. I would go back to the Baths for sure on my next trip back to the BVI's.

“A Trek to The Top!”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

Our resort offered "Beach Drops" to any beach in the area. We were dropped off with a beach umbrella, towels, drinks and snorkel gear for three hours. They also called ahead to make sure that the restaurant at the top was open. If it is not, we recommend bringing snacks or a small meal and water bottles. We had a wonderful time climbing and exploring this beautiful part of the island. Make sure to wear water shoes/sandals. We stopped off at "The Poor Mans Bar" half way through our trek. The Pain Killer Drink is spectacularly yummy and refreshing. They also have bathrooms before continuing on your journey to the top. Once you reach this point the rest of the way is man made steps built into the rock. Once you reach the top there is a very nice restaurant/bar, two shops, a gallery and killer views. There is also a fresh water pool where you can cool off. One thing to remember - you have to go all the way back :) So save some energy for the trek back to your beach.

“A must see”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

We took the beach drop from Little Dix bay to Devil's bay and walked through the baths from there. It is definitely a must see while on Virgin Gorda- snorkelling was pretty good, too and the water was crystal clear.
