How to Spend a Day in Virgin Gorda

There are so many great ways to spend your days at a villa Virgin Gorda.  Lounge by your own private pool. Curl up in a corner of your BVI villa rental and read a good book.  Sit on your deck and admire the view.

However, let’s face it.  Eventually you’re going to want to get out and see what the island has to offer.  A trip to Virgin Gorda is one of the prettiest of the British Virgin Island holidays, and there is plenty to see and do here. Here are some suggestions for how to spend a day in Virgin Gorda.

The main town on Virgin Gorda is Spanish Town, which is home to a beautiful harbor.  There are lots of charming shops and restaurants at the Virgin Gorda Yacht Harbor, as well as at the Little Dix Bay Resort, and on the other side of the island at the Bitter End Resort on the North Sound.

When it comes time to grab a bite for lunch, head to the Bath & Turtle in Spanish Town for great burgers and fresh seafood.

If you want an active day, plan a day of snorkeling or scuba diving off the coast.  There are lots of excursions you can book which will take you to explore the shipwreck of the RMS Rhone, which sank in a hurricane in the 19th century.   You can also head over to the Bitter End Yacht Club and rent a sea kayak to explore the shoreline.

For a day at the beach, head to The Baths.  The beach is covered with volcanic rocks, which are the perfect setting for photos.   There’s a restaurant right near the beach called Top of the Baths, which has a great lunch menu.

If you’re looking for a day trip, book a boat trip over to Norman Isle, just off the coast of Tortola.  The island is a real deserted island, and local rumor has it that it inspired the novel Treasure Island.  Pack a picnic and spend the day exploring the caves and beaches.
