Location

By mid-morning in Virgin Gorda, the sun worshippers have settled down on one of the many deserted beaches that fringe the island: Savannah Bay, Handsome Bay, or Big Trunk Bay.┬áThe pace of life is slow on Virgin Gorda, but if you don’t want to spend the day on a beach, there are plenty of other activities. You could explore The Baths, where huge boulders seem to have been arranged by a playful giant to provide a myriad of rock pools, secret beaches, and trails. Visit the Copper Mine standing guard against the blue Atlantic. Or just spend the morning at a hillside restaurant cooled by gentle breezes while you watch the ferries cross the North Sound far below.

Measuring just eight-and-a-half-miles long, Virgin Gorda is the third largest in the island chain. Dramatic slopes plunge from Gorda Peak to the turquoise waters far below. Not many islands offer the range of exclusive resorts, some of them the last word in understated elegance. There are other resorts accessible only by boat. The choice of restaurants will please the most discriminating palate. Whether you stop for breakfast, lunch, or dinner, you’re sure to find yourself lingering longer than you expected. Virgin Gorda has that effect on visitors.
