Virgin Gorda is an irresistible Caribbean island with a laid-back attitude. Only half an hour ferry ride from its neighboring isle of Tortola, the beaches here are pristine and quiet.
Luxury Retreats’ Top 5 picks for must-do activities while staying at Virgin Gorda villa rentals include:
1. Explore The Baths
The Baths of Virgin Gorda are likely the most famous landmark in the British Virgin Islands. Hundreds of smooth boulders form spectacular salt-water grottoes and clear blue water pools – ideal for snorkeling.
Note: There is a $3.00 entry fee. Visitors can access The Baths by either of two walking trails or by private boat.
2. Get Schooled in Sailing
The Sailing School at Bitter End is accredited and has certified instructors from all over the world to teach novice sailors basic techniques, and challenge experienced sailors.
Note: Bitter End Yacht Club also has great beachside dinning and local music!
3. Mix Cocktails like Brian Flanagan
Learn to create delicious island cocktails in a fun and interactive environment, a great way to spend the day with friends! You’ll be sure to impress everyone back home with your island concoctions… that is if you can remember the recipes.
Note: A minimum of four people per class are usually required.
4. Try an Extreme Water Sport
Water sports are plentiful in the Caribbean, and Virgin Gorda has ideal conditions for water skiing and kite surfing. It’s no wonder why the 2011 Billabong Kite Jam were hosted by the British Virgin Islands!
