Virgin Gorda, BVI
Virgin Gorda is the third-largest (after Tortola and Anegada) and second most populous of the British Virgin Islands (BVI). Christopher Columbus is said to have named the island “The Fat Virgin”, because the island’s profile on the horizon looks like a fat woman lying on her side.
The Baths on Virgin Gorda
The Baths are a sublime jumbled collection of sky-high granite boulders by the sea they make Virgin Gorda one of the BVI’s major tourist destinations. The rocks are made of volcanic java from about 70million years ago and form a series of grottoes that fill with water and shafts of kaleidoscopic sunlight and look truly otherworldly. Paddlboarding there is a totally amazing experience!
These pics were taking during the Hiho Race, where you spend a week abroad a Catamaran racing through the Virgin Islands, but you can of course also go to Virgin Gorda on day trip with a Powerboat.
