Virgin Gorda is the second largest island in the British Virgin Islands providing some of the best and safest boat anchorages in the Caribbean. The largest town is Spanish Town located next to a small airfield, the wildlife sanctuary Little Fort National Park and the huge marina Virgin Yacht Harbour. There are ruins of a copper mine in the south near Crooks Bay and Little Dix Bay is popular and named after the names-wise hotel of Laurence Rockefeller. Savannah Bay is a near-perfect crescent beach with white powdery beaches, palm trees and turquoise seas. Other highlights besides its natural wonders in Virgin Gorda are Gorda Peak National Park and the ruins of a sugar plantation in Nail Bay. Getting there is by ferry from Road Town, Tortola, or from Beef Island, which offer a ferry ride to Leverick Bay, North Sound. From there you can continue onwards to Gun Creek, Biras Creek or Prickly Pear Island.
A popular tourist attraction is the Baths, a landscape of partially submerged grottos, swim-throughs, pools and large granite boulders, accessible for swimmers, divers, snorkelers and plenty of fish. This unique, natural phenomenon actually consists out of the three sandy coves Spring Bay, the Baths and Devils Bay, all equally impressive in its nature and scenery. Most diving is done around the Dog Islands but several unexplored pinnacles, coral walls and pristine reefs are found at dive sites in North Sound and St. Thomas Bay as well.
