Take an approximately 40-minute cruise along the Sir Francis Drake Channel to Spanish Town, Virgin Gorda. Open safari buses take you on an approximately 20-minute drive through Spanish Town to The Baths for swimming in the unique atmosphere of mammoth boulders, palms, and sea caves. Travel along the trails and boulders to discover hidden caves and sea pools. Note: Wear your swimsuit and bring a towel. The footpath to The Baths is rough, consists of uneven terrain and goes through small spaces. Snorkel gear can be rented on the beach.

This was a blast. Traveled with a group of 10, all in our 50's - 60's. I felt like a kid again after making our way through the maze of lava rocks.

Review 2 for Virgin Gorda Highlights
Date:February 16, 2012
Lives up to the hype!
Our ship was only in port from 7 to 1. The comfortable 'ferry' boat leaves right from the cruise pier- couldnt be easier! After a nice ride over to Virgin Gorda, and a quick 'safari truck' ride to The Baths, you walk down a short path to the incredible Baths boulders. We had plenty of time to swim and go through the caves. These were the highlight for us- the walk/wade through those caves from one beach to the other. Hated to leave, it was SO beautiful everywhere! There's a nice restaurant at the top with a gorgeous view off the deck. In poking around some of the outer boulders, I got a few scrapes, sometimes from waves swooshing between boulders and pushing me into a rock. Not serious injuries, but littler kids ought to be supervised if they go out around the outer rocks. Closer to the beach there's nothing at all to worry about. Unlike other reviewers, we did not find the path down difficult AT ALL. The path back up from the other beach is longer, but not difficult either. The tour that goes in by boat left the pier at the same time as us and only arrived a few minutes before us. Except for swimming into the Baths from their ferry, their experience was the same as ours. And with the two groups there, we did not find it felt crowded.

Favorite port:Barcelona, Spain - as a debark (Gem)
After a fast ferry transfer from the cruise pier over to Virgin Gorda we had about a 20 minute narrative tour of Spanish Town, the island’s main town, before heading to the Baths. This tour is not for those who are not stable on their feet as the way to the first beach is not supported with hand railings and contains many uneven surfaces. Older people in our tour group were having issues with stability on the surfaces. When we arrived at the first beach, the tour guide gave us about 45 minutes to enjoy the beach before we headed through the rock formations to the other beach.
The narrow passages and climbing over the rocks was incredibly fun. There are parts where the rocks open up and you can spread out and take a quick dip. If you’re tall like me there are some spaces where you have to actually crawl on all fours to get through them. What waited on the other side at Devil’s Bay beach were very pristine light blue water and a relaxing beach. We spent quite a while there and took a dip in the water before heading back to the tour bus. Be sure to allow at least 15 minutes for the journey back up to the bus parking area.
