The Baths on Virgin Gorda are truly a sight to see! They are a tumble of colossal-sized boulders forming grottos and pools of crystal clear water to wander through at your own pace.
The day begins with a scenic 2-hour boat ride to Spanish Town’s, Virgin Gorda Yacht Harbor. Once the boat is docked, head to the taxi station, stopping at the shops or restaurants along the way. We suggest ordering sandwiches at the deli for a picnic later in the park.
The 10 minute taxi-ride is part of the adventure as it winds its way through a quaint Caribbean landscape (taxi fees are $4.00 per person each way).
The taxi drops off at the parking lot of The Top of the Baths restaurant where you can buy a cold drink and enjoy a dip in their freshwater pool.
A few feet away is the National Park station. Entrance fees are $3.00 for adults and $2.00 for children. The attendant is friendly and knowledgeable so be sure to ask questions about the area!
Walk down to the start of the trail into the Baths. It is a beautiful 10 minute walk through boulders and lush greenery. It feels as though you are in the middle of nowhere on your way to a magical place.
There are plenty of signs, steps and ropes to help as you meander through the park. On the other side is a beautiful white beach called Devil’s Bay.
When ready to head back up to the taxi, you can walk back through the Baths or head up the trail to the car park.
- Plan to spend the day!
- Bring water
- Wear comfortable, stable shoes
- Put all of your gear in a backpack since you will need your hands free to safely navigate through the park
