This half-mountainous, half-flat ‘Fat Virgin’ with a scrawny neck lies a few miles northeast of Tortola. Home to just 2500 people, Virgin Gorda is proud home to The Baths – a surreal collection of gigantic granite boulders and one of the Caribbean’s most amazing sights.
They’re strewn across blindingly white palm-lined beaches at the southwestern end of the island. Tide and wave action turns caves into baths and back again, eroding a snorkeller’s playground of crevices and pools. It’s on the south side of Devil’s Bay and is well worth scuba diving in calm waters.
