Virgin Gorda.
This island is about 8.5 miles long, and is
famous for The Baths, which is a collection of
very large boulders that are on top of each
other at the edge of the water. You can
explore over, around and under these
fabulous boulders while stepping on white
sand and turquoise clear warm water.

On the other end of the island you have North
Sound, which is a large bay surrounded by
islands and you can only reach most of it by
water. There are resorts, restaurants,
beaches, snorkeling, bars, kite surfing,
sailing opportunities..
Devil's Bay Beach
This National Park is accessible by boat or
by walking through the trails of The Baths.
The beach is pure white sand and sprinkled
with large granite boulders. Its deep blue
waters make for excellent diving and
snorkeling.

Mahoe Bay Beach
This remote quiet beach with vivid blue water
is located north of Savannah Bay. The bay
lies at the end of a tropically landscaped
drive leading to a restaurant, beach resorts,
and villas. It's gentle sandy curves and two
picturesque reefs afford wonderful water
activities.

Savannah Bay Beach
Located to the north of Virgin Gorda Yacht
Harbour and with spectacular sunsets,
Savannah Bay is a beautiful long curving
stretch of sand perfect for relaxing on the
beach and swimming.

Spring Bay Beach
Sprinkled with boulders, this stretch of white
sand is one of Virgin Gorda's loveliest and
features some of The BVI's clearest waters.

The Baths
A National Park made up of a series of small
sea pools lying beneath a canopy of giant
granite boulders. These sheltered light-filled
grottoes create a unique setting to swim and
explore. Snorkeling along the outside
perimeter of both The Baths and Devil's Bay
reveals an area rich in colorful fish and coral.

Trunk Bay is one of a series of spectacular
white sand beaches that line Virgin Gorda's
western shore. Bordered by a private estate
and a palm grove, Trunk Bay can be reached
by boat or along a path from Spring Bay.
Devil's Bay National Park
A 15-minute hike from the top of The Baths
brings you to the picturesque Devil's Bay, at
Virgin Gorda's southwestern tip. Its beaches
are a tranquil location for swimming and
snorkeling.
Gorda Peak is a 265-acre national park
starting at the 1,000 foot contour and
continuing up to the island's highest point of
1,370 feet. The area, which contains a wide
variety of indigenous and exotic plants, has
been extensively reforested with mahogany
trees. An observation tower at the top offers
spectacular views of some of the
surrounding islands.
Little Fort National Park can be found just
south of the Yacht Harbour. It was the site of
a Spanish fortress and some masonry walls
still exist on the hillside, including the ruins of
a structure called the Powder House. The
36-acre area is also a wildlife sanctuary.
Spring Bay
To the east of The Baths is Spring Bay. The
giant boulders line the beach and there are
excellent swimming and snorkeling
opportunities for novices and professionals
alike. The well-manicured lawn leading to the
beach is also a favourite for picnic and
recreational games. The NPT has recently
put in swings and added picnic benches to
further enhance the park. Its small coves,
which provide safe snorkeling are popular
with charter boat guests, who moor their
boats in the area. Massive boulders form
coves that allow a steady but calm flow of
water back and forth. Marine life is vibrant at
Spring Bay since fishing is not permitted. A
unique enclosure of boulders forms a natural
pool called The Crawl. In the past, this was
used by fishermen to hold turtles and fishes
alive until they were ready to be used.

Prickly Pear National Park
This 243-acre island was declared a
National Park in 1988. Located in the North
Sound of Virgin Gorda, the cacti covered hills
of Prickly Pear slope down to several pristine
beaches. In the low-lying areas, white and
black mangroves grow along the island's
four salt ponds, providing an important
habitat for resident and migratory birds. Red
mangroves on the southern shore are home
to a variety of fish, sea urchins, and other
marine creatures. The northern and eastern
shores boast two of the territory's best
beaches. The north beach, in particular,
offers great swimming and snorkeling. For
hiking enthusiasts, the National Parks Trust
and Visions International created a hiking
trail which leads from the Sand Box Bar, over
a gentle slope, down to the North Beach.
While hiking, you can rest under the shady
tamarind tree, at the top of the hill, and enjoy
the cool, Caribbean breeze.

The Baths
The centerpiece of this dramatic area on
Virgin Gorda's north shore is The Baths, a
geological wonder comprised of
awe-inspiring granite boulders, which form
sheltered sea pools on the beach's edge.
The protected area also includes Devil's Bay,
which can be reached from The Baths by a
series of ladders scaling the boulders. Just
north of The Baths, Spring Bay is reached by
a separate road and includes a lovely white
sand beach.

The Copper Mine
This national park located on Virgin Gorda's
desolate southwest tip was mined by
Cornish miners between 1838 and 1867,
and perhaps even earlier by the Spanish.
Today the remains of the chimney, boiler
house, cistern and mine shafts can be seen.

Saba Rock Nautical Museum and Gift Shop
Was owned and operator by renowned diver
Bert Kilbride, the museum showcases
artifacts from the wreck of The Rhone, as
well as other shipwrecks.
