Virgin Gorda is not as popular compared with the rest of the British Virgin Islands, yet beholds comparable and unique beauty that makes visiting the third-largest island a must.
Perhaps its most attractive feature, Virgin Gorda contains the geological wonder known as “The Baths,” for its rock formations that hide partitions of the south beach in giant beautiful alcoves. Swimming beneath the natural phenomena as well discovering its many boulder fields and caves is as interesting as it is unforgettable.
A heaven for swimmers, divers and snorkelers, the other popular areas on the island are a sheer delight, with Devil’s Bay; located near and accessible to The Baths, Spring Bay; a short distance away and the often secluded and romantic Little Trunk Bay.
Not the swimming type? There are a variety of island restaurants, bars and resorts where relaxing in the tropic climate may be just the pill.
Travel to Virgin Gorda from Tortola is as simple as a short and pleasurable ferry ride away. On land transportation may be a bit costly, as taxis are the prevalent measure of getting around, but many inland hotels and villas offer car rental options that make getting around a little easier.
At only 8.5 miles (13.6 km) long, the island is known to have perhaps the widest variety of hotels, cottages, villas, restaurants, and pubs in the British Virgin Islands, making it a very convenient location for picky travelers.
