“The Copper Mine, Virgin Gorda”
Review of The Copper Mine

The Copper Mine
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed December 4, 2013

The Copper Mine is a National Park containing the ruins of an abandoned 19th-century copper mine on the southeastern tip of the island. It is an easy drive or taxi from town and signs directing you there have been much improved over the years. Basically, drive pass the Mineshaft Cafe ( stop there for a drink and the view on the return) until you reach the end of the road, which also has been improved (it's paved). There are the remains of several structures including the chimney and signs with the background history of the mine. Bring your camera, the site offers several spectacular northerly views of the Virgin Gorda, Coppermine Bay and the Airport. Facing south are Fallen Jerusalem,Ginger and Cooper Islands. The terrain outside the parking lot can be treacherous, not a place to walk in sandals or barefoot. There are some paths in various states of repair. All in all a very interesting and beautiful site and well worth the time to visit. If you plan to visit the site, check out the website for more information and history.
