Leverick Bay

Positioned on the island of Virgin Gorda, 0.7 miles north-northeast of Santu Patia, Leverick Bay is on the North East coast of the island, You should consider stopping by even if you aren't staying in the immediate vicinity. Vacationers who prefer to walk rather than drive around the Virgin Islands will find that Leverick Bay is a good choice for them. There are so many things to do in the area, as this beach isn't far from the city's major hubs.

The water here is clear and good for snorkeling, so bring your equipment if you're looking to see what goes on beneath the surface.
