Beaches, Hikes & Outdoor Attractions


The Baths – Geologic Formation & Beach

The Baths, British Virgin Islands

The Baths is one of the most sought-after attractions across the British Virgin Islands. This astonishing setting, located on the southern end of Virgin Gorda, is a rocky maze made up of enormous granite boulders. These boulders create an amazing grotto featuring channels of caves and tunnels along with small clear pools. At the top of the short trail leading down to the baths is a parking lot, gift shop and Top of the Baths restaurant. The Baths is truly a spot of pure beauty on the island of Virgin Gorda!

Spring Bay Beach – Beach

Spring Bay, British Virgin Islands

Spring Bay beach is one of the most beautiful beaches on the island of Virgin Gorda. Unlike The Baths, which is typically a busy spot, Spring Bay is great for those looking for a more secluded spot. Located on the southwest coast of Virgin Gorda, very close to The Baths, this beach is much easier to access with a parking lot only a short walk away. Covered with white sand, surrounding tropical forests and large boulders that block the wind makes this beach very easy to enjoy!

Savannah Bay Beach – Beach

Savannah Bay, British Virgin Islands

Savannah Bay Beach is a small, deserted, white sand beach with calm water that is protected by coral reefs. Moving north from the busy, southern spots on Virgin Gorda, Savannah Bay Beach is located on the northeast end of the island only a 5 min drive from Spanish Town. If you are looking for a very quiet, secluded beach, you will love this spot. It is important to note that since this location is more unfrequented, there are no shops, facilities and little shade in the vicinity so come prepared with sunscreen and snacks for the day!

National Parks & Hiking Trails

Gorda Peak – National Park & Hiking Trail

N Sound Rd, British Virgin Islands

Gorda Peak is one of, if not the most amazing view you will get on the British Virgin Islands. Located on the northwest ridge, south of North Sound, Gorda Peak sits at 1,370 ft. There are several connecting trails that lead to the summit, but the main trail takes about 20 minutes to reach the peak. If you are looking for a little longer hike, it will take around 35 minutes to reach the peak from the grassy car park. On the peak you will find picnic tables, portable washrooms, and an observation tower that offers an even more breathtaking panoramic view of the British Virgin Islands. Keep your eyes peeled! Gorda Peak is home to the world’s smallest lizard, the Virgin Gorda gecko.

Devils Bay - National Park & Hiking Trail

Devils Bay (The Baths) National Park, British Virgin Islands

Devils Bay is located a short walk from The Baths with both trails beginning at the same parking lot. More difficult than the walk to The Baths, Devil’s Bay is a 1.1km, 15-minute hike through boulders, dry vegetation, and caverns. As you get closer to Devil’s Bay you will make your way through grottos that feature ropes, wooden ladders, and small pools that you will have to make your navigate, don’t worry, it is nothing too strenuous. Be sure to bring a swimsuit and/or waterproof phone case or camera! Although this hike isn’t the lengthiest, there is plenty to see, and you will find many wonderful places to explore. This is a very popular spot in Virgin Gorda so if you want to beat the rush we recommend going early!
