Virgin Gorda Excursion | The Baths

July 9th, 2015

The most popular Virgin Gorda excursion for Oil Nut Bay guests is The Baths, a national park with a beautiful beach area, massive granite boulder formations, tidal pools, and beautiful caves. It’s an excellent location for snorkeling and swimming.

The History of The Baths Virgin Gorda

The history of The Baths Virgin Gorda is a rich one, stemming from molten rock that bubbled up into the existing volcanic rock layers, creating formations that eventually became the rounded, weather-exposed boulders that we see today.

The Baths are located in the southwestern part of Virgin Gorda and are easily accessible by rental car or taxi, which we can reserve for you from guest’s services at Oil Nut Bay. If renting a boat is more your speed, as it’s possible to moor out in the bay reaching the designated dock by swimming or dingy.
The park offers a few boutiques and restaurants to explore before entering and has a nominal fee of $3 for adults and $2 for children.

While there, head out on the trails and discover the rich natural history of The Baths Virgin Gorda. Select your route over boulders or stay on the designated path with stairs and ropes that help and guide you to Devil’s Bay, a picturesque horseshoe-shaped bay beach welcoming you after your hike through dry scrub vegetation and boulders.

Or take a trek to the North and descend onto Spring Bay. With large boulders, excellent snorkeling, and clear waters, this location is a quieter alternative to the Baths.

Whatever excursion you choose to go on, you’re bound to be blown away by the stunning natural beauty and rich history of The Baths Virgin Gorda.
