Most Beautiful Beaches
The following list provides a brief description of several of the most beautiful beaches. Make sure to visit as many as you can on your nextÂ vacation in Virgin Gorda.
The Baths, itself a treasure good for swimming and snorkeling, exploring and rock climbing, has adjacent beaches, Spring Bay and The Crawl to the north as well as Devil’s Bay, a trail-hike to the south and fairly secluded. The Baths is another extremely popular location that can get crowded from cruise ship jaunts, charter boats and day trippers.
The Crawl is great for small children and novice snorkelers. Giant boulders create a small “lagoon” of clear calm water, complete with some reefs, tropical fish, and even an occasional sea turtle. Picnic tables with barbecue grills are nearby.
Little Dix Bay
Laurence Rockefeller had the whole Caribbean to chose from and he favored Little Dix Bay for his “environmental” luxury getaway. One look explains it all–this quintessential beach gem, hidden in its own cove, the white sand beach and breaking reefs inside a tropical tableau framed by small mountains and their rocky points. A little piece of paradise!
A remote secluded beach for those seeking it with great island views, birding and beachcombing. Best reached via four wheel drive.
With the feeling of a lagoon inside its reefs, its gently curving white sand is demarcated by its own small hillside valley onshore.
One of the nicest pure beaches without development, it is on an interesting geographic location at the “neck” of the island.
Prickly Pear Island (Vixen Point)
A nice calm swimming beach with a beach bar. Hike up over the ridge through the Prickley Pear nature refuge to North Beach for outstanding swimming, snorkeling, sightseeing and beach combing.[/su_spoiler]
