Without a doubt the most famous attraction of Virgin Gorda is The Baths: a collection of enormous boulders where you can crawl, swim and climb. Virgin Gorda’s geological features come from volcanic activity. A volcanic crater forms The Valley, where Spanish Town sits, and the island’s iconic caverns have lava to thank too. When molten volcanic rock cooled just off the coast, it formed the gigantic granite boulders now known as The Baths. You can climb the boulders using rails and ropes, to reach the remote Devil’s Bay on the other side or just use the trail from The Top of the Baths.
In Virgin Gorda you will find several secluded beaches with soft, silky white sand surrounded by colorful reefs bursting with marine life.
This is the less secluded beach in Virgin Gorda due to the Jumbies Bar, The Restaurant, Blue Rush Water-sports, Michael Beans, the stores and the pool. You will meet people, have a great time, enjoy delicious drinks by the beach and food too!

Established in 1964 as a National Park, Devil’s Bay is one of Virgin Gorda's most beautiful beaches. You can access to this beach from the water or on foot.

A second trail at the eastern end leads visitors to The Baths through massive granite boulders, where hikers should be prepared to crawl, climb ladders and wade through water. Caution must be used at all times to avoid slipping or failing. You can swim and snorkeling, or just relax on the silky beach. Admission $3.
This iconic place should be on everyone’s list on essential things to do when visiting the BVI.

This dreamy beach is perfect for snorkeling, chilling at the beach and the ideal spot for a beach bbq. You can bring your food to cook there ( there is also a large outside grill) and have the perfect beach day, but remember: leave only footprints! Keep Virgin Gorda crystal clean like its waters!
Little Trunk Bay
You won't find any road access here as the beach is directly adjacent to private property. The easiest way to get there is trough a trail that is accessible from the north end of Spring Bay Beach or the southern end of Big Trunk Bay aka Valley Trunk Bay. Sailors can get there by sea without trouble. Just anchor in Spring Bay and snorkel around if sea conditions permit. Otherwise, swim to shore and take the footpath from Spring Bay.
This is a spectacular white sandy beach, bordered by a private estate and vegetation, its palms were swept away due to hurricane Irma. It can only be accessed on foot by a path from Spring Bay or by boat.
ST. Thomas Bay
This is a nice beach perfect for families and children. You can enjoy it at Fischer's Cove and on the other side of the anchorage at St. Thomas Bay, right beside the ferry dock.
LITTLE DIX BAY
This amazing beach is non open for the public. Rosewood Little Dix Bay is currently closed following the aftermath of Hurricane Irma passing through the British Virgin Islands in September 2017. Although Rosewood Little Dix Bay was closed and under renovation, the resort did sustain significant damage. We now anticipate the resort will re-open late 2019, although the resort currently remains closed for all future reservations.
