Copper Mine Point, Spanish Town

4.2
Stop at Copper Mine Point while touring Virgin Gorda island to immerse yourself in a fascinating historical site. Abandoned and left to ruin in the 1800s, the mine was used by British miners, and the fruits of their labour would be transported by boat all the way to Wales. Be sure to bring your camera, as the site affords beautiful views of the ocean. There is little information available onsite, so it’s worth researching the mine's interesting history before you go. For travelers who use our online itinerary creator, Virgin Gorda holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Copper Mine Point and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

  • The drive to the Copper Mine provides some great views, and the mine ruins are nice to see. The government has done a nice job of installing markers with a little historical summary.  more »
  • The Copper Mine is a unique experience. It is at the end of a winding road through neighbourhoods and wild goats roaming freely. As you approach the mine site the stone structures stand out...  more »

  • The historic site of a copper mine that is now abandoned. It sits on a cliff overlooking the sea and makes for a great photography location. The area is also used by the locals for fishing but visitors should be careful because the seas in this area are very rough it is not advised to enter the water. You can however collect some of of the naturally occuring copper which makes a great souvenir.
  • Lots of minerals in rocks to look at. Great view. Nice piece of history. Loved it!!!
