Virgin Gorda | BVI

This Island is spectacular. The third largest of the British Virgin Islands (after Tortolla and Anegada) Virgin Gorda entices with her natural beauty and calm relaxing lifestyle. We spent our days snorkeling at quiet postcard coves like Mahoe Bay and Spring Bay and exploring the granite grotos at Little Trunk Bay and The Baths. One afternoon we took in the views and ate conch fritters and pulled pork at Hog Heaven, then drove over to the North Sound where we took a water taxi from Leverick Bay Marina to Saba Rock for a sunset happy hour. This was my first time traveling to the BVI and I'm really glad we chose VG as our home base. 

Getting There: The ferries from STT --> VG are 90 minutes and run on a limited (once or twice a day) schedule. Speedy's runs on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays ($70 round trip) and Inter Island Boat Service on Thursday & Sunday ($90 RT). 
Getting Around: Rent a car. Our VRBO host rented us one of hers for $50/day.
If you are staying at a resort it is still worth renting a car - the island has lots of different beaches and unique vantage points worth checking out at your leisure.


  1. So beautiful and sounds like so much fun!

  2. I am loving all these travel tips! So helpful. And I need that frozen, chocolate/coffee looking drink!
