VALLEY, Virgin Gorda, VI- Considered by many as the tourism capital of the Virgin Islands, Virgin Gorda can be further proud to learn that The Baths has made Caribbean Journal’s Top 10 Snorkeling Spots.

In fact, The Baths is the first to be featured in the magazine that sees two snorkelling spots in the US Virgin Islands also making the list.

“You don’t always need a boat to appreciate the Caribbean’s underwater wonders. Because some of the Caribbean’s best snorkeling spots are right on the sand. At these snorkel-friendly beaches in the Caribbean, you can wade right in and enjoy some of the best submarine sights simply by dipping your face in the sea,” Caribbean Journal stated before introducing the world famous The Baths.

“Wade into the warm waters of Devil’s Bay or Spring Bay to snorkel the crystal-clear pools formed by the giant granite boulders that are the Virgin Gorda’s marquee attraction,” Caribbean Journal said of The Baths.

Other snorkeling spots to gain recognition were Klein Bonaire in Bonaire; Champagne Reef in Dominica; Cane Bay in United States Virgin Islands; La Chiva Beach in Puerto Rico; Smith Cove in Cayman Islands; Arashi Beach in Aruba; Trunk Bay in United States Virgin Islands; Anse Chastanet in St Lucia and The Bight in Turks and Caicos Islands.

    For now. Please take care of this unique location with funds from the new Environmental Protection and Tourism Fund Act imposed on all those visitors. The crowds are eroding the local flora and fauna.
    So, if the BVI is getting so much great press about its natural resources, why are officials worried about being left behind? We are LEADING in such arenas. Chill and take care of what we have before inviting 1 million people in, expanding the airport and hosting mega-ships which clog the roads. We need planning for sustainability, not quick opportunism. The question is whether you want a dime today or a dollar tomorrow.

      Hush dog, everyone has to eat. Just like villas and yachts make money, there are people who are into tours etc. that make money from cruise ships. Take care of the place yes, but we shouldn't have to limit ourselves.

        there is a balance to be discovered so you will make more money while preserving the resources. Otherwise, you will have nothing.

      You sound so stupid...Virgin Gorda is part of the Virgin Islands we are all one people and have the same blood line... if we live on Tortola, VG, Anegada, Jost Van Dyke etc. all the Islands belongs to all of us so stop putting down the nation. Visitors visit every beach in the VI and they are all beautiful and unique.

      hmmm... not Long Bay West End or Long Bay Beef Island or Smugglers Cove? or Sandy Cay? If they want elite resorts and million$ villas, maybe. Most of those people don't want to mingle. They want the longer airport for their private jets.

    Congratulations Cane and Trunk Bays (St. Croix and St. John respectively). However VG's Baths is the most beautiful place on Earth. Above and underwater. Period.

    Can some one explain to me why when you arrive in Virgin Gorda, as you drive from the ferry dock
    the first thing you see is a gay/lesbian painting instead of our national treasure The Baths?

    This is embarrasing to all virgin gordians, Can some authority please look into it. Tourist Board please
    step up to the plate for once.
