Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Stunning 360 degree views of the Virgin Islands from excellent viewing platform. Great walk from sea level at long bay stopping at Hog Heaven for a refreshing beer on decent.

Two trail heads off N Sound Rd. There is off road parking at 1st spot. 1st trail head 50 minute walk to peak. Very gradual ascent. Viewing platform was reopened about 4 months ago. Amazing 360 view of island and shaded picnic table for lunch on middle platform. The second trail head has only road side parking. It is a steep ascent taking about 15 minutes. Take the longer route and enjoy the singing birds, the creeping hermit crabs and a lizard or two.

Gorgeous view of the entire island of Virgin Gorda and her neighbors. We took the less common route -- the shorter trail. The trailhead of the short trail is about 1-2km above the one of the popular long trail and is also marked with a clear sign. It says 880 meters long to the top. We started climbing up at 4:45pm, hoping to catch the sunset by 5:30. Everything worked fine until we got to a (the only) T-intersection. We thought the left trail is going up and should lead us to the top, but we soon realized it actually descends 5mins after the turn. After some debate, we made a U turn in fear of getting lost after dark. Another 10mins, we were back to the T intersection and just found there is a sign hung on a tree indicating "outlook platform" had we made a right turn instead. After that everything was easy. We quickly made to the top and climbed up to the renovated observation tower. The renovation seems still ongoing with some logs laying on the trail. The view was absolutely gorgeous and breathtaking! We were able to see miles miles away the entire Virgin Gorda from east to west, Tortola, the Dogs, Saba Rock, Prickly Pear, Eustatia, Moskito, Scrub, and Great Camanoe, despite the clouds and low lighting. Definitely recommend staking a short hike if you have 1--1.5 hours. Just remember to make a right turn at the T intersection, 😂

35 minute walk - the longer trail. Steep and rocky in places but not difficult. No one else there so quiet and peaceful. Lovely views if you scramble up a rock and we were joined by a little hummingbird!

We recently visited Virgin Gorda for the second time. This time we had our children and two of the best 10 days that we spent there was spent with Elaine from the leverick bay snuba place.
The snuba experience was ideal because we were able to take my three kids, the youngest, being eight years old, 20 feet down. We lucked out because visibility was excellent. We saw an abundance of fish and the coral was spectacular. A great introduction to scuba diving without carrying the tank and bc on your body. All without the need for a certification. Felt very comfortable since Elaine has logged thousands of dives around the world and led our group (Elaine with tank and kids on snuba) around a magnificent bunch of coral.

Next was a day trip to cooper island, the Indians, the Willy T, and the wreck of the Rone and another nice snorkeling spot. We grabbed coffee and homemade ice cream from a shop on copper island,
Snorkeling at the Indians was incredible. Lunch on the willY T was a nice stop to rest and jump off and have a cocktail. Lastly we stopped at the wreck of the Rhône. Not a whole lot to see besides the shaft and the propeller, but enjoyed the story of the 1864 shipwreck in the hurricane. Overall an amazing day that took about 7.5-8 hours. Private charter with Elaine. 10/10

Nice hike, not strenuous. The tower was not there when we hiked in 2022. It had been destroyed by Hurricane Irma and not rebuilt as of yet.

This review covers all of Virgin Gorda. I took a ferry from Tortola to Virgin Gorda on a beautiful sunny day. I had a cabby meet me at the ferry and we spent 3 hours touring the island. What stunning views. Savannah Bay, views from a restaurant called Hog Heaven and even Morgan Freeman's home in Spainish Town. We also visited The Copper Mine and The Baths (reviewed elsewhere).if you're in the BVI's you must stop off in Virgin Gorda.

We hiked from the lower entrance/parking area. It took maybe 45 minutes each way. We are in our early 50's, in good condition, and the hike itself seemed pretty easy. The observation tower has not been rebuilt since Irma knocked it down, but you can still climb up the boulder on top and see a beautiful birds-eye view of Spanish Town. On an island famous for its beautiful beaches, this hike is a nice change of pace for a couple hours. We really enjoyed the hike and will do it again next time we are on VG.

We took the ferry from Tortola over to virgin gorda it took about 40 minutes then took a shuttle bus over to the baths took about 15 minutes. Baths are rock formation that form caves that you wade through. This was a beautiful very fun excursion and well worth it.definately need aqua shoes
