This is the best stop in the Caribbean for beach goers. The Baths are great or for smaller crowds, try Spring Bay.

Spanish Town is small quiet and laid back but a good jumping off point for island junkets. The Baths are a $5 taxi ride and worth the long walk down to the giant rocks at the shore. Snorkeling is good.

If you are healthy and like some physical exertion, a trip to the Baths is worth doing. It is a very different kind of beach day.

This was our first time to the British Virgin Islands and we chose the Virgin Gorda Baths tours which is a lot of fun. You do need to be pretty mobile to do this tour as you climb around incredibly huge rocks and up and down rickety ladders. It's hard to believe how these rocks could have been deposited the way they are, very worthwhile! You need to waterproof your camera but there are some awesome shots to be taken. Read Less

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! Read Less

We had been here before on a private sailing yacht and a windjammer. This time we just walked to a beach, sorry can't remember the name, but it is the first one to the right of the marina. It is in front of a small resort that we are now considering a stay at in the future. The beach was quiet and we had a great view of the Journey! For those visiting that prefer a tour, go to the Baths - you won't be disappointed. Read Less

Was not impressed at all with this port. Our itinerary said Tortola, British Virgin Island. Mostly Tortola will consist of Roadtown, not this trip. We went to Virgin Gorda, Spanish Town. The island was not prepared to deal with the large volume of guest coming off the ship. Most of the time they get smaller ships, they were more than overwhelmed. Needlessly to say we got off and got back on board. Our family that went with us did enjoy the island tour when they finally got on and it was well spent money and the rest of my family enjoyed going to the baths and said it is a must see and do. I will be looking forward to that on our next visit. Read Less

We had never been to Virgin Gorda before, so I booked the ship’s excursion to The Baths. If I had known we were definitely going to anchor and tender into Spanish Town, I would have saved $28 pp and took a taxi to The Baths for about $4 pp. Oh well, live and learn?. We had to meet the tour group at 7:30 a.m. in the theater, and just before 8:00 a.m., we were on a tender to Spanish Town. After a short wait for a taxi bus, we were headed for The Baths. Our tour escort gave us our free drink coupons and advised us on physical requirements for touring The Baths caves. Mom and I were a bit worried that we couldn’t handle the caves so we just headed for the beach area next to it. After frolicking in the sun and surf with my daughter for a couple of hours, we decided we would try the caves after all. So the 3 of us went in. It was challenging, but fun, so we kept going until we hit a huge bottleneck in the middle. Apparently, there was a RCCL tour group attempting to leave the caves at the same time people were entering. Since the caves aren’t really formed for 2-way traffic, it was a disaster. Tempers were short, and crowds were growing. After a while, we just gave up, and headed out the way we came in. We never did make it to Devil’s Bay due to crowded caves. Then to add insult to injury, we had to make steep the climb back to the “Top of The Baths” for our free drinks. By the time we hauled our out-of-shape bodies to the top, we were near fainting. After guzzling our 6 oz. fruit punch, we were exhausted and ready to head back to the ship. The taxi bus ride back was not very organized, and our tour escort was nowhere to be found. We finally were able to board a taxi, and make the bumpy ride back to town. We shopped in the marina area, and then got in a very long line in the hot sun to board a tender back to the ship. Note to self: Do not book a Baths excursion during Easter Week! If we ever get to Virgin Gorda again, I hope I will be more physically fit to handle the long walk and steep climbing. Read Less

Loved it! This is a place for beach lovers! We did the ship excursion for $23 per person to Savannah Bay Beach. We knew that everyone was going to the Baths, so we opted for a less crowded and less strenuous beach. Savannah Beach is lovely. It's a crescent of white sand, with shade trees and stunning water and views. There are NO facilities, so it's a good idea to bring food and water. The water is really shallow and you can walk out really far and still stand up. It was a bit windy the day we were there, but that helped us keep cool. After 3 hours, we returned to the pier area where there are a handful of decent shops and a bar. It's very quiet, but really really nice. Would like to go back and stay at Little Dix Bay. Read Less

It's very pretty but pretty limited. We preferred Saba as a remote place. So many tourists and not much to offer.The water is the thing, of course, and it is spectacularly beautiful and just the right temperature.

The day we were there the red flag was out and we couldn't really swim in the water. There isn't anything there other than The Baths. It certainly is something to see! You can grab a taxi at the port to take you there.

We loved this port, as we knew it well from sailing in our sailboat around the BVI's, and it was our first Scuba Dive Destination. However we heard that not everybody liked it. The shore excursions were "boring" to some and frankly there isn't a lot to see here - except the Baths and the beaches of course. But great diving! This is a tendering port of call. Read Less

Aside from the Baths, which are a "must see/do" attraction, there's not much else on this island. The Baths are a set of large rocks that seem to have been jumbled on the shore by some prehistoric giant. There's a very interesting path through the rocks, but make sure to wear water shoes or surf sandals - it's dangerous to try this in bare feet. The beach on the far side of the Baths, Devil's Bay, is a much nicer and less crowded beach than the one at the Baths proper, but there are no facilities (e.g., bathrooms) there whatsoever. To get there, instead of walking down the trail to the Baths, turn left at the ticket office (you do need a park admission ticket) and walk uphill to find the trail from the parking lot to Devil's Bay. It's a longer walk, but well worth it. Taxis are readily available from the yacht harbor (where the tenders dock) to the Baths and back. Read Less

The Baths is truly a unique and beautiful spot and not to be missed. A lunch at Top of the Rock (at the top of the Baths trail) provides good food and a truly spectacular Caribbean vista.

Our last stop was Tortola, BVI but we saw nothing on Tortola. Our ships tour took us to Virgin Gorda.Most of our group did a private tour on a catamaran that also went to Virgin Gorda. The ships tour was less and we got to see more because we had a fast ferry vs the Cat. We saw Spanish Town, and spent about an hour swimming and snorkeling at a secluded beach before going to the Baths. The baths are a couple of beaches where huge volcanic boulders dot the beaches. There are a collection of boulders that separate two beaches and they have created a maze path to squeeze through that they call the Cave. It is about 350 yds from the lot to the beach and a longer walk back up if you choose the non-cave path back up. Nice bar, restaurant and pool at the top for those who didn't want the beach. It was a shame that we left at 1 but it was the last stop and we needed to leave to get back to home port. Read Less
