In the heart of the British Virgin Islands lies a secluded paradise that has captivated the hearts of travelers around the world – Devil’s Bay Beach. Known for its clear azure waters, soft white sand, and fascinating network of granite boulders, this hidden gem promises an unforgettable Caribbean escape.

The surreal granite rock formations & tidal pools of The Baths in Virgin Gorda are a must-add to your bucket list. This maze of mammoth granite boulders, tidal pools, grottoes, and tunnels is breathtaking. Walk, climb, and swim your way through the 15 minute path that leads to Devil’s Bay Beach. Duck into anywhere that looks interesting to find your own private pool.

The beach at the Baths is one of the most beautiful beaches I’ve ever seen. Picture crystal-clear turquoise water, soft white sand, and expansive sky as far as your eye can see. Take everything you need for the day and plan to spend hours here.

Definitely go on your own and not with a tour group. This place is too special to get herded through quickly.
