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.

Which Beaches Are Available?

You'll find an abundance of beaches to choose from on the island. Snorkeling is an option at some locations, for people who enjoy this relaxing pastime. You can click on individual beach names for a detailed review of that particular beach.

The Baths

If you are hoping to snorkel, a beach offering that option 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 good choice for snorkelers is Spring Bay. Access to the beach is provided by a small path and carpark, which is located off of the island's main road.

Big Trunk Bay: Trunk Bay is nestled in seclusion on Virgin Gorda's western shore. The beach can only be reached by boat or by hiking through the gully stream off of Ridge Road.
