Visiting the Baths BVI Virgin Gorda will make your British Virgin Islands trip complete! This is one of the most amazing experiences that made my beach vacation an unforgettable one. While visiting the Baths BVI, I got to explore its breath-taking scenery. Consisting of large granite boulders and crystal clear waters, the Baths of Virgin Gorda make this Caribbean location an incredible nature to explore. There are many places you can stay at while visiting the BVI. Whether you decide to stay at Tortola, BVI’s capital, or at one of the BVI’s private islands; there are plenty of options for you to choose from. Although Tortola is a known tourist location, I decided to spend my getaway at Scrub Island.
Join me as I visit the Baths BVI Virgin Gorda – let’s talk tips, things to do and how to make the most out of your beach vacation!
Private Boat Charter
During my Caribbean vacation, I opted for a private boat tour with Dive BVI. They offer a variety of services at different rates for you to get to the Baths BVI or to any other neighboring islands. These services are an excellent way for you to have an amazing experience. However, these could be a bit pricy which is why I recommend Dive BVI if it fits with your budget.
How to get to the Baths BVI from Tortola?
Tortola is the capital of the British Virgin Islands which is why many tourist and visitors choose to stay here. If you are coming to the BVI on a cruise, there are excursions offered directly from the cruise line for you to enjoy. However, if you are coming to the BVI on your own, the island has two ferry services that are safe and cost-effective. Speedy’s Ferry Service and Smith’s Ferry Service offer roundtrips to Virgin Gorda from Tortola. The ferry will leave you at Virgin Gorda Ferry Dock and from here there are taxis available that will take you directly to the Baths. TIP – Make sure you have an updated schedule of ferry arrivals and departures to plan your trip accordingly!
Handy Things to Have
Vacationing in paradise should be as easy and relaxing as possible. However, you don’t want to forget any important items that could ruin some of the fun! Therefore, here are the top things to have when visiting the Baths BVI:
- Dry bag: You will need to store your towel, camera, and phone ( I mean, did you really go to the BVI if there are no pictures?)
- Floating Wrist Strap & Head strap Floater (You have to keep your phone/ camera safe)
- Ear Band Headband (For all my curly-haired girls, we have to hold that hair in place!)
- Full Foot Mask Fin Snorkel Set (The private boat does offer this, but I had to make sure mine fit correctly)
- Make sure to get your sunscreen (YES, even chocolates like me need it)
Snorkeling in the Baths BVI
Being able to arrive at the Baths BVI on a private boat screams luxurious vacation! However, getting to shore isn’t exactly easy breezy. The trip requires some level of endurance because of the island’s landscape. As a result, our captain had to dock the boat a bit further away. One of the best things to do in the British Virgin Islands is to snorkel. During our trip, we decided to take the opportunity to explore what lies below the crystal clear waters of the BVI.

Finally, you have arrived at the Baths – but now what? Once you arrive at the turquoise water, and the different shaped boulders create a dramatic look. The trail to the scenery is surrounded by cave-like rocks which leads to different corners and pool-like bodies of water. There are different levels for you to fully explore the baths BVI, which is why you should be prepared for a bit of outdoor activity. The baths are considered one of the 8 natural wonders of the Caribbean which is why you should not miss this location.
During my visit to the Baths BVI, I had a memorable experience. The Baths BVI are by far one of the most iconic things to do in the British Virgin Islands.
