Port Rating: 5.0 out of 5+
Our ship docked at Havensight, which is a great area. Shopping, rental cars, and taxis etc all convenient to the ships. I think the set up here was the best we have ever seen. There were 5 ships in port that day but we had no problem getting where we wanted to go. We rented a van from Budget. We brought our own GPS and once DH got used to driving on the left, had no problem navigating the island. We spent our day at Coki Beach. The little ones and grandparents went to Coral World (located right next door) while DH and I went for a beach dive with Coki Beach Dive Club (located right on the beach). Coral World was small and did not seem worth the money. Coki Beach Dive Club was great. Friendly staff, affordable rates, and convenient location. The beach was ok, but small and under construction with new bath houses being built. The water here is great for snorkeling, and the water is gorgeous. There has been some issues of crime here in the past, but we felt very safe. The beach area was secured and fenced off. The locals were very nice and seem to be taking it upon themselves to keep the rif raf out. There was the occassional police presence which also helps. We are ever aware of our surroundings and we did not see or sense any threats to our safety. We went with small kids and would go back again for sure. Our only regret was the lack of time to explore the rest of the island. We will go back for sure.

We took the NCL excursion Virgin Gorda Highlights with our infant, toddler, and in-laws. We had a great time exploring the Baths. This is a beautiful and unique experience that I will never forget. My only regret was not having more time to enjoy the beautiful beach and caves. Note: the Baths is a vigorous hike. We are experienced hikers and hike a lot with our kids so for us it was fun. For many people, especially those with young kids, this may not be too difficult. If you can, go!
