We invite you to explore the best kept secret in the Caribbean: Virgin Gorda! The perfect beach getaway for your family vacations.
Virgin Gorda is a beautiful island located in the British Virgin Islands. Virgin Gorda reminded Christopher Columbus of a reclining woman, because of the noticeably shaped island, so he named it Virgin Gorda, the “Fat Virgin.” Virgin Gorda is the third largest island of the BVI; Virgin Gorda measures eight and a half square miles and has a population of 3,696 inhabitants (2006).
The Baths, quiet coves, safe anchorages, white sandy beaches, snorkeling, sailing, diving and villas make this island the ultimate place for your beach vacations.
Leverick Bay Resort & Marina, located on the North Sound, is accessible by water and land and offers the perfect Caribbean vacations in an extraordinary, secluded environment.
Your privacy is ensured at one of Virgin Gorda’s deserted sandy beaches, such as Savannah Bay, Pond Bay, Devil’s Bay, Mahoe Bay and Spring Bay. The Baths is the number one Caribbean attraction where huge granite boulders create mysterious grottos, saltwater pools and a connecting trail that entices visitors to spend a day exploring, swimming, and snorkeling.
Explore Virgin Gorda on the rugged trails that run throughout the island, and see the huge variety of unique indigenous plants that blossom in the national parks at Gorda Peak, Devil’s Bay, Spring Bay and the North Sound. At the nature sanctuary at Little Fort National Park, marvel at the exotic birds as they swoop over the hills and ocean.
Virgin Gorda has been luring people for centuries. Discover the island’s African and Indian heritage; trace its Spanish history at the ruins at Little Fort National Park; observe the British influence in Spanish Town and at the Cornish Copper Mines on the island’s southwestern tip, where ruins stand sentinel against the Caribbean sea or enjoy the day in sailing yacht.
Experience the British Virgin Islands’ exquisite Caribbean cuisine, a wonderful combination of all its influences, and explore the variety of shops offering local Caribbean arts and crafts, as well as gifts, resort wear and souvenirs.
Virgin Gorda can also be experienced on a day trip. Spanish Town has its own airport, and a regular ferry runs between Road Town, Tortola, and Spanish Town. Another ferry takes passengers from Trellis Bay on Beef Island to Leverick Bay, the Bitter End Yacht Club and Biras Creek.
