The Baths is a geological phenomenon so spectacular, it warrants a ferry ride to nearby Virgin Gorda, where you'll enjoy nearly 2-hours in this beach-blessed paradise.

From the pier, it's an exciting ferry ride aboard a fast Speedy's Ferry through the beautiful Sir Francis Drake Channel to historic Spanish Town on Virgin Gorda. It's a picturesque journey that becomes even more magnificent as you drive to The Baths National Park on the island's southern tip in your open-air safari bus.

The beautiful seaside setting is the island's most visited, photographed attraction, especially the shoreline where a slew of massive granite boulders is clustered. These unique rock formations reveal the volcanic origins of tiny Virgin Gorda, or "Fat Virgin," an island Columbus named because he thought its profile resembled a rotund woman lying on her side.

During free time at this beach that is characterized by its array of massive granite boulders that tumble upon the beach, you can explore the grottoes and hidden tidal pools, which are illuminated by dramatic shafts of sunlight. The largest boulders measure approximately 40 feet across and many of them are stacked atop others, inviting you to wander about the crevices. Thousands of years of erosion from the sea have smoothed most of the surfaces.

The crystalline water here is teeming with colorful marine life, so you may want to enjoy snorkeling the coral ledge just offshore. There's also a trail to adjoining Devil's Bay, which is usually less crowded. Enjoy a rum punch at the gazebo above The Baths before retracing your route back to the pier in Tortola.

Please note: Walking on this tour is strenuous as the footpath to reach The Baths is rough and uneven. This tour is not available to wheelchair guests or those with mobility concerns. Participants should be in good physical condition. Bathing suits should be worn under a cover-up and guests should bring their own towel. Hats, sunglasses, sunscreen and comfortable walking shoes are strongly recommended. Guests taking part in any water activities do so at their own risk and responsibility.
