Daytrip to Virgin Gorda

On St John, which is centrally located to all of the Virgin Islands, we are fortunate to have easy access to some pretty incredible places.  In my many years of captaining day sail charters out of Coral Bay I got to spend a lot of time at some of the most secluded and stunningly beautiful destinations.  Some of them just a mile or two from the house, others within a day trip distance. 

Traveling between islands is traveling between worlds. 

Virgin Gorda's famed "Baths" is one of those day trip spots and is nothing short of spectacular.  The impossible sized stones piled on white sand beach create pools, caverns and valleys of turquoise water.  One can feel the age of the earth under and among boulders that big.  


Getting there Tips

17 miles to Windward(from Coral Bay -longer from Cruz Bay) can be a a long way.  On a breezy day it can be a challenge to make it there.  The good news is, if you try and go and can not make it, there are lots of other destinations to go to on those days.  If you are lucky enough to make it, be humble, be careful and go early or late to avoid the crowds
