Gotta Visit

This is a fun place to explore and snorkel at. Depending upon your ability, the hike can be moderately challenging, but worth it!

Loved The Baths and will return to this beautiful island! We took Speedy's ferry from Tortola to The Baths for a day trip. The Bath's is a must see.

It's well worth the visit but be prepared to have good sandals it takes 15-20 minute hike to get there through boulders cactus but it's worth it. Once you get to the boulders it's impressive with the water then you have the opportunity to climb over and go up and over boulders would suggest doing this by ferry return is... More

For the more adventures, veer left after paying your $3 admission fee. It takes you down a long winding hiking path to Devil's Bay. You can loop around through some boulders and up an incredibly sketchy flight of wooden stairs and make your way through the grottos and saltwater pools of the The Baths until you hit the beach. I...

If you like spectacular seaside scenery and wading, crawling thru and over huge rocks and climbing ladders, this is the hike for you. My husband and I did this hike on Jan. 20 and it was fabulous. The hike is a loop from the Top of the Baths down to the seashore and following the trail thru granite boulders ranging... More

The Baths are even better than all the pictures that you see. We took a ferry over from Tortola and it was very easy, and affordable, to find an open air cab to the Baths. When you get there, you buy your ticket & head down. It's truly beautiful. When you get down to the water, there's a snack shop,... More

Beautiful if not too crowded but New Year was unusually busy apparently. Make sure you carry as little as possible as it is quite a walk to get there. You only need a costume, towel and a pair of non-slip shoes. It's not necessary to go down the long route the officials try and make you go either.

For the U.S. Virgin Island tourist a boat trip to the B.V.I. is a common distraction. The most hyped destination is Virgin Gorda and 'The Baths" Swim in and Swim back from the boat. The snorkeling in an back is decent and it's a nice 15 / 20 minutes to explore the Bath's caves that have some warm tidal pools... More

Great spot, but crowded! If you are brave, go left on the beach and climb through the rocks to the next cove. You will feel like Indiana Jones. Be careful! If you are not brave, go right with the crowds and plan on walking/crawling through the beaten path with dozens of your new best friends. No need to be careful!

There was too much current for us to swim into these majestic boulders peppered about the coastline. This area is magnificent, the boulders creating coves, caves and inlets where you can soak your feet and swim if the water is calm enough. There is a very cool cave to be enjoyed by those who can bend and crawl and are... More
