Delightful, unspoiled Virgin Gorda, situated in the heart of the British Virgin Islands, is the ideal destination for couples and families who want to experience a tranquil vacation while enjoying beautiful beaches, gorgeous views and a chance to escape from the everyday responsibilities left far behind. With a population of only 1500, the 10 x 2 mile island reflects an irresistible charm, with friendly islanders who greet visitors with a bright smile and a very short “toot” on their horn as they pass on the road.
Virgin Gorda boasts some of the best beaches and unsurpassed snorkeling in the Caribbean. The deserted white sand beach on Savannah Bay beckons sun worshipers to bring a picnic and while away the day. The unique boulder formations at The Baths have formed pools and grottoes which snorkelers can follow all the way to Devil’s Bay. Mahoe Beach with its incredible reefs, diving pelicans and beautiful sunsets is the ideal location to relax with a cold drink and a good book.
Exploring the island with a visit to the old Copper Mine Point or a hike up to Virgin Gorda Peak National Park to work off last night’s dinner are just a few of the sights to enjoy on this little gem in the BVI.
Dining out is another highlight and there are several excellent restaurants scattered about the island. Dining in at the villa is another option and very often guests find that it is fun to just “hang-out” and BBQ, play a game of cards, followed by an evening of star gazing.
