“so so so beautiful”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 27, 2014

Once you emerge from the caves that start at the Baths, you discover this white sanded, turquoise coloured watered, huge bouldered stretch that is Devil's Bay. oh, and hens too. It's great fun climbing around and over the boulders, and i would have loved to swim and snorkel around, but the red flag was up, and the surf was really strong, so no swimming….

As it is with the Baths: go early morning! There wasn't anyone else to be seen on the beach, except for the hens….So go for it. There are two paths leading to Devil's Bay by foot: one at the entrance, so instead of heading towards The Baths, you take the one leading towards this beach, or you can go through the caves (it's fairly easy, don't worry, but it makes it a lot easier if you are alone and get to tai the time you want…go early morning!!).

There are no facilities on this beach, but there are at there Baths or at the start of the trail :)

Anyways, Devil's Bay is gorgeous, and another must in Virgin Gorda!

enjoy!!

“Beautiful Beach!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 21, 2014

Devil's bay is another pristine beach surrounded by the granite boulders of the famous baths. Once you go through the baths, the path leads to this beach. It is gorgeous

“Very good beach, but the path can be difficult”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 21, 2014

We decided to go to Devil's Bay to try to get away from the crowds at The Bath's.
The first thing is if you are going there by walking from The Baths it is difficult. You are climbing over boulders, squeezing under boulders, going around boulders. Anything you can do with a boulder, you are doing it. If you are in a line of people going there, have patience, it will take a while. If you are in the middle of the line you are committed, just keep going. There are stairs and ropes when needed to help you along. Sometimes it looks like one way is the easiest, but there might be another way that is better.
Anyway, once you have made it to the bay it is a really nice beach. It is a lot wider than the Baths and less crowded. The view from the beach is really nice. The water was clear and nice. There were some waves when we were there, so stay away from the sides because you really don't want a wave pushing you onto the rocks.
If you want to go to a nice beach, I think this is better than Baths. We had a good time there.

“Even better than the baths”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 15, 2014

Visited as part of a cruise excursion to the baths..Much more fun than the baths climbing through and under the rocks. Great photo ops. Do not miss if you're in the Virgin Islands. (Wear shoes with good footing as some parts of the caves and water will require climbing and can be a little slippery)
