|Virgin Gorda is the largest
of the BVI's and the second most populated. It covers eight square miles
and was named the Fat Virgin because it resembles a woman lying on her back. The main
town, Spanish Town, has a few boutique shops and stores for sundries.
Nearby is the well-known Baths. Granite boulders tumble down the hill
into the sea creating wet and dry grottos that you can explore either on or off
the beaten track. If the seas are not rough, we can anchor outside the
Baths and dingy in to shore. You may choose to take an island tour and
include a visit to the ruins of the Copper Mine. A cab will pick you up in the
town of Gun Creek and take you along a mmountain- top road with breathtaking views of both the north and
south side of the island. You may stop at both the Copper Mine and the Baths and
finish the tour at Spanish Town where Victoria will be waiting.
Fine dining is available at restaurants in the Spanishown area and also at Little Dix Bay resort.
On the other side of Virgin Gorda, and a world apart, is the North Sound. It is a large, protected sound with several resorts and beach bar restaurants surrounding its quiet waters. There is usually a band playing at one of the resorts and on Friday night, Leverick Bay has a wonderful buffet dinner followed by a Moko Jumbies show. Monday through Thursday is the Michael Beans Happy HouRRRR! Nearby, at Saba Rock you should try one of their outstanding frozen drinks while relaxing in a hammock. Saba Rock offers a buffet or full menu for dinner and a lighter, pub fare menu for lunches. Dinner and lunch is also served at Bitter End resort and the very upscale, Biers Creek resort.
If you are not too tired from the night's activities, there is some gorgeous snorkeling in and around the North Sound. On the reefs that protect the Sound you never know what treasures you might uncover. You can choose from deeper water reef snorkels or a shallower swim from one of the many North Sound beaches. For the land lubbers, the Gorda Park has some challenging hikes that reward the energetic with spectacular views.
