Lovely Virgin Gorda can be found at the end of the island chain of the British Virgin Islands. It’s the beautiful scenery, the paradise-like atmosphere, a variety of things to do, and the friendly locals that make this place special. And we'll admit - the abundance of delicious food is important, too. For everyone searching for a relaxing, slower-paced vacation, Virgin Gorda is your best choice. It's less populated than other islands and the beaches are pristine and tranquil. Rumor has it the island is named as "The Fat Virgin" because Columbus thought it looked like a woman lying on the ground. Keep your eyes open as you approach the island to see it yourself.
Little Dix Bat Spa
A typical day on Virgin Gorda is spent at the Spa on Little Dix Bat, where you'll have a picturesque mountain views among the tranquility and peace of personalized service. The unique local treatment is the Goat Milk and Honey Wrap - and you will have an unforgettable experience.
No trip to Virgin Gorda is complete without visiting The Baths, a beach where stones create a maze-like effect. Were these rocks ejected from a volcano or brought by a storm? You can debate with your friends but you'll all agree on the beauty of this place. If you're feeling adventurous, take advantage of Virgin Gorda boat rentals for one of the Caribbean's best experiences. Due to the remote location of this island, the sea life remains untouched and protected, so you will see lots of colorful fishes and corals.
The scenery in Virgin Gorda is dramatic, with huge boulders and a steep road ending at Gun Creek. You can also find restaurants, bars, and grills almost everywhere on this island. What makes it really special is the beaches. Popular places like The Baths have thousands of tourists but a short walk away from the road will bring you to the quiet Spring Bay. On the other side of the island, you will find plenty of sandy spots such as Savannah Bay.
