Many travelers to the British Virgin Islands make their way to Virgin Gorda to see the beautiful Baths. Laden with exotic pools and grottoes set among sea caves, the site was formed by mammoth boulders, around which explorers can swim and snorkel with crystal clarity.
If you happen to be a geological buff, you will notice that the boulders on the beach are indicators of the island's volcanic origins, which placed the granite that eroded into the splendid formations of The Baths.
The Baths' main entrance can be reached by heading west from Spanish Town along the conveniently signposted road. You can park a car at the elegant Top of the Baths restaurant. The site is also accessible through water trails reached via Devil's Bay. If careful and attentive, it's possible to spot sponges and corals in the water. Another such path leads to Spring Bay, where you can see many fish and other aquatic life.
