The British Virgin Islands, like the Bahamas consists of a group of smaller islands. One of the best of this tiny island chain is Virgin Gorda – home of The Baths, which is actually a national park.

The Baths, popular tourist and beach spot in the British Virgin Islands

The Baths is quite a unique beach with beautiful white sand, but at some times of the day, the sand takes on a pinkish tone. Everywhere along the beach are giant unique shapped granite boulders. It’s like nothing you have ever seen – some of these rocks are more than 30 feet high.

While you can explore around these giant boulders on land, snorkeling is a blast. There are small caves and grottos everywhere, and a variety of fish and marine life. Here is water is crystal clear, and the color of blue aquamarine.

Spring Bay Beach is another good choice, and within easy reach from The Baths. The waters are clean and calm, and this area is a snorkelers delight. So many interesting sea creatures. It just doesn’t get too much better than Virgin Gorda – that is until you travel on to another tiny island Tortola . . .

Cane Garden Bay on Tortola offers a stretch of pristine white sand beach that covers over a mile. This is the perfect beach to take a long walk or jog – it just appears to go on forever – and the waters are crystal clear, and the color of a light aquamarine. Other great beach stops are Devil’s Bay, Pond Bay and Mahoe Bay.

White Bay on the tiny little island of Jost Van Dykes has been selected by travel publications as one of the world’s top beaches. The sand is pure white, beautiful palms, not too crowded – another perfect picture post card.
