Virgin Gorda is a small island (about eight square miles), located in northeastern British Virgin Islands.

The island is best known The Baths – a landscape and seascapes strewn with granite boulders the size of houses. The boulders form natural tidal pools, tunnels, arches and scenic grottoes that are open to the sea.

The Baths and adjacent bays are now part of BVI National Park. Beaches and snorkeling are among the popular activities. Other activities on the island include hiking and sailing.

With only a few resorts and a sprinkling of villas, the entire island has a pleasing intimacy. The travel hub for the island is Spanish Town.

Overall Atmosphere: Natural
A Natural Atmosphere includes a diverse range of destinations with outdoor-oriented features, including both water-based (beaches, rivers, lakes, etc) and land-based (mountains, forests, deserts, etc). It also includes specific outdoor activities, ranging from water adventuring (eg, kayaking, sailing) to land adventuring (eg, hiking, biking).

Natural Interests tend to be:
(a) outdoors-oriented, and therefore more dependent on weather conditions
(b) less easily accessible and more physically demanding than other destination categories.

In some cases (eg, rafting and climbing), this includes a significantly increased degree of adventure (or danger, depending on one's viewpoint).
Featuring mainly outdoors-oriented natural attractions.

Beaches
Along the southwestern shore below Spanish Town, there is a string of beaches, with light surf, beautiful sand and blue water. Each beach is separated from the next by the huge granite boulders that make the scenery so memorable.

Among these, The Baths is Virgin Gorda's most famous beach, due to its hidden caves and pools nestled amongst the giant granite boulders. As a result, it can become very crowded when the small cruise ships come calling. The best times are 8AM-10AM, and 3PM-5PM. Changing rooms, lockers and refreshments are available on the beach.
