Notes

Six mooring balls available to transient visitors (90 minute limit)

No dinghies on the beach. There is a yellow ball to tie up dinghies from which you can swim to the beach. It's also possible to swim direct from the moorings if the current isn't too strong.

Petty thievery is a risk if you leave anything unattended.

Little protection, you are very exposed to Northeast swells.

Attractions

Top of the Baths, landside approach: This area is marked by a turn-around at the end of the road and featues a few nice boutique-style shops and a very nice restaurant, Top of the Baths. It is also where you can buy tickets for The Baths, by the top of an interesting trail down to the beach and the start of The Baths experience. It's a bit of a hike from the yacht harbour, but taxis are readily available. You can tie up at the yacht harbour and take an open air taxi , spend at least an hour and a half at The Baths.

Reviews for The Baths
Amazing place, 2016-07-08
Captain: , Annapolis (262)

There aren't many places you can go swimming off the beachand be surrounded by massive rocks. Great for pictures. Folks won't believe it! Stopped here on 2 previous BWI charters.



Amazing boulders, 2013-12-04
Captain: , st petersburg, fl (838)

A rock climbers dream come true. All the boats were gone by 3pm, so early OR late will have you solo in this wonderful spot.



A must see, 2013-03-25
Captain: , Woodbridge (278)

Reviews right on, a must see. Word of caution, plan on getting there first thing in the morning to grab a ball. While there is supposed to be a 90 minute time limit it does not seem to be adheared to. We tried to drop a hook outside of Spanishtown but could not get it to catch after several attemps.

The Baths is among one of my most favorite places on earth. I cannot describe how beautiful and different this location is. This is a must stop location.

The moorings fill up quickly and are not supposed to be used and approached by dinghy in Red Flag conditions. As it was a Red Flag (large swells/dangerous to approach land in the dinghy), we stayed in Spanish Town at the Virgin Gorda Yacht Club and took a taxi to/from The Baths. The taxi was $4 per person each way.

This is one expereince you don't want to miss in the BVIs. We docked at Leverick Bay Resort and Marina and took a taxi to the baths to avoid the hassles associated with the mooring balls. Navigating the paths through the rocks is a great way to spend the day and the beaches arpound the rocks have spectacular views. We had drinks ate the beach bar and later had lunch at the retaurant and the food was good and reasonably priced. Captain Paul Mirenda



A must see..., 2011-11-22
Captain: , Oyster Bay (313)

...and since it is, the morring field fills up quickly. Can't leave your tender at the beach so someone wil have to swim back from the dinghy floats after dropping off passengers. The paths in between the rocks can get crowded with the bus crowds.



Absolutely gorgeous, 2011-01-23
Captain: , Humboldt Bay (10)

Spent the afternoon climbing through the rocks and swimming in the wonderful swimming hole. Definitely the must see of the BVI...



A must-see in the BVI, 2011-01-01
Captain: , Mystic, CT (973)

This is a great experience for the whole family. Bring a waterproof camera and be prepared for a fun time climbing the huge boulders and wading in the pools along the way to the Devil's Bay beach at the south end. There are some steep sections requiring good footing. Plan on at least 20 minutes to traverse The Baths (in each direction) and don't cut it too close as the sun goes down.



Get there early!!, 2010-12-30
Captain: , New York, NY (470)

Truly fantastic!! The big boulders defy description, and none of the pictures can really capture the essence of the place. We swam in from the boat, not too bad of a swim. We got there around 0815 and in an hour the crowds from the cruise ships arrived. All those people transformed a magically awesome experience to a bit of a drag. Next time we'll get there around 0700.



FUN stop in the BVIs, 2010-08-18
Captain: , Cornwall PA (421)

I recommend you take a guided tour of the Bths, because the stories and history are very interesting. Then swim in the beautiful clear water among the huge boulders. Truly a spectacular visit!



Need a 10 star option, 2007-02-13
Captain: , Huntington, NY (2310)

It does not get any better than this. The sites on land are fabulous as you walk through a trail of caves and 40 foot boulders.
