The baths on the island of Virgin Gorda in the British Virgin Islands. This is one of the trips we have planned since we got here. Saved it for our next to last weekend.
The baths has nothing to do with cleanliness, the refer to the huge granite boulders that dot the beach and provide natural tidal pools, arches, mazes and scenic grottoes that are open to the sea.
The Baths were "discovered" by Christopher Columbus, and Virgin Gorda was named by him. It is now one of the most visited attractions in the British Virgin islands.
Everybody gets buggy eyed at the amazing unique look of the beach! Or maybe this fellow's eyes are still bugging out from 1997 when Tyra Banks filmed a famous cover shot for the Sport's Illustrated Swimsuit Edition.
Our tour included time to swim in the clearest water I have ever seen... An amazing blue green color.
And don't get too excited, but there were enough wet T-Shirts to get a contest starting...
The Baths are a "must do" if you get the chance to visit. Everywhere you look, it's a different picture postcard.
There are lots of beautifully restored buildings and places in "town" (Charlotte Amalie). This beautiful alleyway is all 17th century buildings, restored to a wonderful tourist attraction of shopping...
Some places just look 17th century. A restoration project in progress.
