Expédition Îles Vierges: The Baths at Virgin Gorda

The coverage of our recent expedition to the British Virgin Islands begins at the site of our arrival, The Baths in Virgin Gorda. This well-loved area is essentially a beach covered in gigantic boulders, creating a variety of grottoes and nooks both above and below the water line.

We explored both on foot and on snorkel, and there were plenty of extremely shallow areas full of life. Fish were abundant and tiny orange anemones were often clustered in shady areas and crevices. Madam J found a gorgeous underwater arch we were able to swim through, and nearby I discovered a small cave with an underwater entrance leading to an air-filled dome. Judging by the number of names and initials carved into the ceiling, I was not the first to discover it.
