Paradise awaits you in Virgin Gorda.

Virgin Gorda entices travellers with its yacht clubs, quiet coves, safe anchorages and luxury resorts and villas. On the North Sound and accessible only by water, the exclusive Bitter End Yacht Club offers a premier resort and barefoot elegance.

For a quintessential Caribbean vacation, stroll or swim at the unspoiled beaches at:

Natural Beauty:  Natural beauty is in abundance on the third largest of the Virgin Islands, which measures eight and a half square miles.  Discover the indigenous plant-lined trails, nature sanctuaries and natural wonders of our protected national parks:

Culture & Heritage:  The dramatic shape of the island Virgin Gorda reminded Christopher Columbus of a reclining woman, or “Fat Virgin.” Explore more of our rich heritage of African, Indian and Spanish history, such as:

  • The Spanish ruins at Little Fort National Park
  • The British influence in Spanish Town
  • The Cornish Copper Mines, where the ruins are set against the azure sea at the island’s southwestern tip 

This eclectic influence extends to Virgin Gorda’s local cuisine, shops, arts, fashion and gifts.

To & From:  As a day trip, ferries run regularly between neighboring Tortola’s Road Town and Spanish Town, which also has its own airport.  Another ferry from Beef Island’s Trellis Bay takes passengers to Leverick Bay, the Bitter End Yacht Club and Biras Creek.
