Little Bay

Very few people make the trek to Little Bay, which means those that due are likely to find themselves very much alone. This beach is great for swimming, snorkeling, and sunning on the sand.

Set on less than an acre of land between two rocky headland, Little Bay is a true beauty. The waters can be rough in the winter, so swimmers should do so with caution.

Because so few people go to Little Bay, there are no facilities here -- this includes trash cans.


Little Bay is located toward the center of the island of Virgin Gorda, 0.9 miles northwest of Leverick Bay; it is four and a half miles (seven and a half kilometers) to the northeast of Spanish Town.

Four wheel drive is recommended to make the trip past Lambert Beach Resort and down the hill to the dirt road to the car park. Then, follow the trail along the fence where you will come to the clearing that leads you to Little Bay.
