Experience The Baths on Virgin Gorda
At the Eastern end of the Sir Francis Drake channel, on Virgin Gorda's southwestern shore, lies an incredible natural masterpiece: The Baths. The crown jewel of the British Virgin Islands National Parks system, the Baths are an impressive collection of massive granite boulders deposited at the water's edge thousands of years ago. Today, the boulders offer guests the experience to explore cathedral-esque natural rooms, crystal clear pools, and dozens of hidden corners.
The Baths are accessible either by land or by water. If conditions allow, boaters will arrive at Spring Bay beach, just steps from the entrance to the Baths. You'll have to swim ashore because no dinghies are allowed on the beach (to prevent overcrowding on the tiny crescent beach). The Baths are also accessible via a short taxi ride from nearby Spanish Town. Once at the Baths, guests explore dozens of little "rooms" and hidden pools, leading to a grotto-like experience. Knee deep ocean water flows in and out of the boulders, while sunlight streams down in between the tops of the rocks for an experience like no other. While most parts of the Baths are easily accessible, guests should take note that the parts are physically tight and a bit of light climbing may be required at points.
After traversing the Baths, you'll emerge on Devil's Bay, yet another pristine white sand beach. Devil's Bay is strewn with dozens of smaller boulders (though many are still the size of cars), making for great a great photo opportunity before you return to your boat for additional exploration of the BVI. Amenities like restrooms, lockers, and concessions are available at the entrance to Baths.
