The most well-known attraction on the island, these giant boulders or batholiths, brought to the surface by volcanic eruptions, are scattered about forming a beautiful grotto and tranquil pools.

We chartered a boat and asked our captain to take us here first to avoid the crowds. So glad we did because the baths have some tight squeezes and waiting for large parties to traverse them and for it to be your turn would be...More

This is a very popular tourist site so expect lots of people. However, the area is lovely and worth a trip. The restaurant is great and there is a nice gift shop.

The Baths are located at the tip of the Virgin Gorda island. A must see attraction. As you walk down the scenic trail down the hill to the sea level, you see these huge boulders on the beach. Another trail takes you through a winding...More

Booked this excursion while on a cruise. Was very disappointed. First off the ferry was over 30 minutes late arriving at the pier to pick up. The ride over was bad as it was very bumpy and folks started getting sick. Not much ventilation in...More

How would you explain difficult terrain and small crevices to negotiate without biasing these potential travelers? While some attention has been paid to making this place hikeable, no way to adequately prepare oneself. It is the twisting and turning and crawling and hauling snorkel gear...More

I'll be brief....the Baths are a must see on Virgin Gorda. You need to go either at 8:00 am or 3:00 pm to avoid the crowds. Period.

The baths were a bit of a walk/climb/hike but worth it and relaxing and nature at its best. There are a series of baths so don't cut your exploration short. Make it to the beach

We love to snorkel here and to take the trail thru the rock formations. We usually spend about 2-3 hours here. We come by boat and the moorings go quickly. The beaches fill up and tour buses drop off lots of people so the line...More

Amazing snorkeling and unique rock formations. But get there early because lots of cruisers take this excursion.

Definitely a must! Took ferry over, shuttle brings you to the top. Hike down to snorkel and then maneuver your way through the Baths. After snorkel some more then back to ferry.

Questions & AnswersAsk a question
We are going to the baths with a group of 12. My biggest question is what is your experience swimming in general? How challenging would the swim in be for a middle aged adult with NO swimming experience of confidence? And an adult anxious about swimming in? Is there a rope to pull along/help swim in? How far was it?? how long did it take you etc? Compared to different Flag days?? We also have 4 children in our group ages 4 to 13. How will children do? they each have an adult to kind of watch. ANd they all have swam and took lessons. THANKS!!!

We went from our boat to the drop off point(roped area for swimmers)in a dinghy and that's as close as we could get. Jumped off the dinghy and it was still over our heads but an easy swim to where we could touch bottom. If... More
Is there a way to take a dingy to shore (we heard its allowed if no motor, paddle only inside dingy moorings) to drop off those who cannot swim?

We went into the harbor and were dropped off and a taxi driver drove us to the Baths. We took an island tour and were picked up by our dingy at another resort. I would say you would have to make arrangements like we did... More

I am curious if there a way to get to The Baths (from port) that will not require a lot of climbing and such. I am thinking a water taxi or ferry? I have heel/Achilles tendon issues going on and I am a bit concerned that I may not be able to maneuver the climbing. If such transportation exist....can you tell me the cost per person? There will be 4 of us.

There is a way to get the Baths without going to the top. You could try Egbert of H&H Freelance Captain Services (phone only, no email, 284-443-5288). He runs a very nice, comfortable, high speed boat that holds about 12... More
