British Virgin Islands

baths


Everyone loves the Baths, a dramatic area on Virgin Gorda's north shore. The Baths are a geological wonder comprised of awe-inspiring granite boulders that form sheltered sea pools on the beach's edge. The protected area also includes Devil's Bay which can be reached from The Baths by a series of ladders scaling the boulders. Just north of The Baths, Spring Bay is reached by a separate road and includes a lovely white sand beach. 

A series of steps and rope handrails guide explorers along a trail through the boulders from the beach at The Baths to the sandy expanse that is Devil's Bay. This popular daytime anchourage is ideal for swimming and snorkelling.

Don’t miss it!

Cane-Garden

One of our favorite hikes began at sunrise, up the immense hill next to the anchorage in Cane Garden Bay.  It’s a great spot for photographing the harbor.

Scuba divers tour the RMS Rhone often.

RMS Rhone was a UK Royal Mail Ship owned by the Royal Mail Steam Packet Company. She was wrecked off the coast of Salt Island in the British Virgin Islands on 29 October 1867 in a hurricane, killing 123 people.  

Since it’s a shallow water dive, it is easily accessible by free-diving.

The ship’s anchor chain is stll visible, although the reef is making fast headway to bury it.

Don’t miss Foxys!

The British Virgin Islands and Jost Van Dyke in particular, would just never be the same without Foxy Callwood. This affable man with a major aversion to footwear, delights in strumming his guitar and entertaining restaurant guests. 

Foxy's mini empire sprang from humble beginnings, just down the beach from its current location, beside the quaint little Methodist Church in Great Harbour. 

In anticipation of the BVI harvest festivities, Foxy saw a need for libations to be served for those giving thanks for another successful harvest. He built a cement slab and erected what has since become a typical beach bar seen almost everywhere on Jost Van Dyke. 

The temporary bar remained in place for two years. In January of 1968, after he'd already made a positive impression, he moved to their present location, expanding a little at a time as finances permitted .... and the rest is history. He now has 2 restaurants. The second one Foxy’s Taboo is located beside Diamond Cay in East End.
