How to enjoy Virgin Gorda

The third largest isle of the archipelago that comprises the British Virgin Islands, Virgin Gorda is a gorgeous volcanic island with perfect sandy beaches and a reputation for being safe and welcoming

  • Climb to the top of the observation tower in the Gorda Peak National Park. The peak reaches 1,370 feet and affords fabulous views of the island
  • To enjoy the beauty of the reef without actually getting wet, climb aboard a glass bottom boat and prepare to be wowed
  • Charter a sport fishing boat to test yourself against the power of the local billfish including Blue Marlin and Sailfish

Virgin Gorda got its name from the region’s most prolific namer, Christopher Colombus. The dramatic, mountainous profile of the island reminded the sailor of a reclining woman and so the epithet was born. Today, the Virgin Gorda continues to attract sailors, enchanted by its many yacht clubs, quiet coves and calm anchorages. Sail to the Bitter End Yacht Club to enjoy resort facilities that can only be reached by boat.

For land lubbers, Virgin Gorda still has plenty to offer. At the southern end of the island you will find The Baths. These are a labyrinth of sea-filled grottos and pools formed by a pile of giant granite boulders. It is a wonderful place for snorkeling. The gorgeous Devil’s Bay Beach is right next door and can be accessed via a series of ladders that scale the house-sized boulders. The view alone is worth the effort.
