A 15-minute hike from the top of The Baths brings you to the picturesque Devil's Bay, at Virgin Gorda's south-western tip. Its beaches are a tranquil location for swimming and snorkelling. Mooring buoys and a dinghy dock allow boaters to access the beach.
National Parks Trust's Decription:
At the southwestern tip of Virgin Gorda is a picturesque Devil's Bay. This horseshoe shaped bay is a welcome sight at the end of the 15 minute hike through dry scrub vegetation and boulders from the car park at the top of the Baths. A second trail at the eastern end leads visitors to The Bathsm through massive granite boulders, where hikers should be prepared to crawl, climb ladders and wade through water. Caution must be used at all times to avoid slipping or failing.
A tranquil location for swimming and snorkelling, or just relaxing under the shade umbrellas, Devil's Bay is one of Virgin Gorda's most beautiful beaches. At the southern end of the beach is a trail to Stoney Bay, where the Atlantic swells pummel the coastline and seabirds soar overhead.
Swim line markers guide dinghies safely through the channel and into the bay, where a dinghy dock awaits for easy access to the beach. Vessels can use mooring buoys coveniently located outside the bay, preventing anchor damage to the fragile coral heads. Mooring permits must be obtained for the use of these morring buoys.
