Virgin Gorda, British Virgin Islands

Thankfully lacking some of the commercialism of other islands nearby, Virgin Gorda offers a relaxing place to holiday, and maintains a feeling of intimacy despite its reputation as an exclusive destination.
You'll enjoy a bit of beach vacationing at Spring Bay and Josiah's Bay. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Savannah Bay and Old Government House Museum. Go for a jaunt from Virgin Gorda to Salt Island to see RMS Rhone about 4h 30 min away. There's much more to do: enjoy the sand and surf at Sandy Cay, explore the striking landscape at The Baths, and view the masterpieces at Aragorn's Studio.

To see ratings, traveler tips, and tourist information, go to the Virgin Gorda trip itinerary maker app.

The hills, valleys, and tropical rainforest of Virgin Islands National Park tell only half the story, with just as much (if not more) to be found under the sea.
Visit Hansen Bay Beach and Salomon Beach for some beach relaxation. Step off the beaten path and head to Scott Bay Beach and Scuba & Snorkeling. Step out of Virgin Islands National Park to go to Charlotte Amalie and see Cardow Jewelers, which is approximately 1h 15 min away. There's much more to do: contemplate the waterfront views at Francis Bay, stroll through Reef Bay Trail, and stop by Mongoose Junction.
