Virgin Gorda in the British Virgin Islands

Virgin Gorda is one of those places you go to relax and enjoy a slower pace of life. The entire island is fringed by nearly deserted coral sand beaches, gently sloping into beautiful, caribbean-blue waters. If you’d rather not spend your entire tropical vacation on the beach, there are a myriad of activities available for all ages.

One of our favorite ways to enjoy Nature’s Little Secrets is a day on the water with Dive BVI, located at the Virgin Gorda Yacht Harbor and Leverick Bay in the North Sound. They will outfit you for snorkel or scuba and take you on a fantastic journey. Many visitors enjoy a trip to the Baths on Virgin Gorda’s western shore. There you’ll find a trail among huge granite boulders, stacked and strewn about into a playful maze.
