The British Virgin Islands have been nicknamed "nature"s little secrets" - and it"s an apt description for Virgin Gorda, the third-largest island in BVI. This idyllic isle is home to protected nature sanctuaries, national parks, and miles of pristine, uncrowded beaches. Explore the rugged trails that course through Little Fort National Park, located on the site of a former Spanish fortress, or shop for artisan goods and souvenirs at Spanish Town, the second-largest village in all of BVI. With scenic grottoes that open out to the sea, the eight-and-a-half square miles of Virgin Gorda's remote beaches, spectacular granite formations, and vibrant coral reefs are sure to captivate visitors at every turn.
Located 15 minutes from your villa is the most-well known attraction on the island, The Baths. This geological configuration features giant boulders, caves and grottoes that form tranquil pools ideal for swimming and snorkeling.
A popular activity on the island is jet skiing out of the Leverick Bay Marina. Weave back and forth across the turquoise water with the sun on your back and the wind on your face.
Sail to Anegada, the northernmost of the British Virgin Islands, a few miles north of Virgin Gorda. The only island formed from coral and limestone, Anegada is flat and low. Enjoy a quiet picnic complete with wine, lobster, and your toes in the sand.
Seemingly endless sunshine warms Virgin Gorda's pristine beaches, where vibrant turquoise water laps at the white sand and palm leaves delicately rustle in the breeze. Such is a typical day on the island. The paradise-like conditions extend throughout the year, only interrupted by an occasional rainstorm. Near-constant trade winds make Virgin Gorda a haven for sailing and surfing, but they can lower temperatures during the evening. Be sure to bring a sweater or jacket.
