Beaches near The Baths, Virgin Gorda

Virgin Gorda is the next largest island after Tortola
and is divided into two distinct areas by some spectacular
hills. Spanish Town and The Virgin Gorda Yacht Harbor
are on the lower, southern end, just north of the famous Baths.

At the northern end is Gorda Sound with its spectacular
anchorages and a perfect stop for getting an early start to Anegada.

The Baths, Virgin Gorda

One of the most popular spots in the BVIs.  Explore the
caves and snorkel amid the large round rock formations
where there are dozens of species of brightly color fish in
grottos of fine sand and sparkling pools.  It is a jewel of
an undersea playgroung in turquoise waters.  There are
also sandy beaches and a bar for refreshments

Leverick Bay, Virgin Gorda

Gorda Sound
Leverick Bay, The Bitter End and Saba Rock are all
popular stops with Bitter End being the largest.  The
scenery is beautiful with homes and resorts nestled
in the high hills of this protected anchorage.  There
are several  casual and formal dining choices, some
with entertaiment and a bar and beach on Prickly
Pear to lounge on for the afternoon.
