The Baths are magical - that is if you can get there without the hordes of cruise ship passengers. If you are staying on the island, get there early in the morning or go late in the afternoon. There is a small admission fee if you walk in. People arriving via boat can swim in from their boats.....or they can... More

On a trip filled with highlights, The Baths stood out. The trick is to get here early (or overnight) so that you can first explore The Baths before the crowds show up (and they will show up). After you're on a mooring ball you can dinghy in part way, but you cannot dinghy up to the beach; you must swim... More

Our group visited The Baths as a break in our private snorkeling charter. Our charter captain brought us up to the The Baths as close as possible to the shore and then we swam in to the beach - which was an excellent way to visit we quickly learned. We came across a very large ground-based tour group of about... More

The Baths beach is beautiful and secluded. At the beach there is little shade and no rest rooms, snack hut, umbrellas or beach chairs. At the top there is a restaurant and amenities but getting to the beach requires walking on a trail through jungle on unsteady ground. Not a place to take children or to carry a lot of... More

Get there early and swim ashore, explore the Baths, for a delightful activity! We've cruised in BVI several times, and it's always fun to stop by the Baths!

The Baths is a natural wonder. No matter how many times I see it, I am in awe of nature. Wandering through these massive granite boulders that have been placed just right by nature to allow us to stand in wonderment, you can't help but feel so close to a supreme being. Enjoy !

I was lucky enough to arrive by sailboat and swim in from a dinghy and enjoy the beach and caves before the cruise ships unloaded. The surf was very rough right at the shore which made it tricky getting out of the water - several of us needed a bit of help. But that's all part of the adventure. The... More

Can't say enough about how beautiful and special this place is. Amazing rock formations, incredible blue water, fish, rock climbing - this place has it all! If you want great photography, get there early before the charter boats unload. Need to be in pretty good shape to crawl through the Baths - bending and stooping but so worth it!

We have been here 4 times and it is always breathtaking and an adventure. Word of caution, it can get pretty crowded, so look up the cruise schedule for those large ships that might be in port on the day your planning and either go early in the morning or later in the day to avoid the crowds. A must... More
