Leave Tortola behind and get to know another of the British Virgin Islands – Virgin Gorda. Its name means ‘fat virgin’, and was so-called by Christopher Columbus who thought its flat shores and hilly inland resembled a large-bellied woman lying on her back. As you sail along the Sir Francis Drake Channel towards the island, you’ll get to decide for yourself. You’ll dock at Spanish Town and board open-sided tour buses before heading to the island’s star attraction – The Baths. Here, you’ll find a jumble of gigantic stones half-submerged in water. See the tide come in to form spectacular sea pools. And clamber or swim through grottoes, tunnels, caves and arches. The Baths also lead to Devil’s Bay Beach, a hidden cove of white sands, imposing rocks and gentle waters. And when you’ve finished exploring, head to the top where some great views will be waiting.
This tour is not suitable for wheelchair users or for those with walking difficulties. Comfortable walking shoes are recommended as the walk is very rocky and uneven. Don't forget your swimwear and beach towel.
