  • Virgin Gorda

    Virgin Gorda is of course the home of the world-famous Baths; immense boulders that look as if they have been strewn by the hand of a giant across an idyllic beach, creating an incredible landscape of grottos and natural swimming pools. On a Virgin Gorda boat charter explore the Baths for yourself and walk through the tunnel to Devil’s Bay where you can find waves good enough for a bit surfing or body-boarding.
