Pictures of this place make it look a little better than it actually is. It's interesting to walk through, but not really that amazing. We carried our snorkel stuff through to the beach on the inside, but there isn't anything to see so don't worry...More

Magnificent and unique experience exploring this beautiful natural rock formation in Tortola. We began with a snorkel and short swim to the beach before exploring the baths. Access through the boulders can be a bit treacherous if you are not particularly nimble or claustrophobic. The...More

Come to this location after 2:30 to avoid the cruise ship crowd. One should be in OK shape to make the loop as it is slightly strenuous and sure footing is needed see it all.

We arrived at The Baths by boat and had to swim to shore - super fun - but walking through The Baths was simply gorgeous. Good to know that you need shoes and to go later in the afternoon to avoid the crowds.

Our captain got us there early to get one of the closer mooring balls and to beat the crowds. So glad because we had to swim to shore! Be sure to pack a water bag, water shoes and waterproof camera case! Best adventurous day trip!

The Baths are beautiful and something you must experience if visiting Virgin Gorda. The boulder formations are very fun to climb through. Great for kids and adults. That being said, the experience has gone downhill over the years. As someone who has only visited while...More

The baths has the most beautiful and clear water I've ever experienced. I've gone to St. John about 20 times, and every few years I take a trip to the baths. It has unique rock formations and opens out to extremely blue / clear water....More
