The most famous beach on the island of Virgin Gorda is the Baths. You'd be hard pressed to find a tourist who doesn't have plans to visit this popular destination, yet, there are numerous other beaches that line the shores worth checking out. Most are protected by barrier reefs allowing the surf to remain calm enough for relaxed swimming.
You will discover an abundance of beaches to consider on the island. Snorkeling is an option at some of the beaches, for visitors who are so inclined. To get additional information about any specific beach click on the names of the ones you are curious about.
A location that's good for snorkeling is Leverick Bay. Leverick Bay is a sparkling velvet sand beach sitting adjacent to a handful of villas and rental properties. A pier is on the south side of the beach, after which the beach gets gray and rockier.
Another top pick for snorkelers is Spring Bay. Spring Bay, located on the southwestern coast of Virgin Gorda, offers crystal clear waters and golden sand for all varieties of beachgoers. Because of its location bordering the populated Baths on the island, the beach is a nice alternative to the massive crowds and for fun you can easily access it by swimming from The Baths.
Big Trunk Bay: The beach is accessible via a small path off of Ridge Road or by anchoring in the bay.
