You could follow the rest of the people from the ship to the Baths. That is where everyone will go.

I agree with saffie. The Baths are the major attraction on the island.

If you would like to get away from the crowds and see similar topography, get a cab to take you to Spring Bay. You can actually snorkel to the Baths from Spring Bay, or walk north down the beach to the Crawl and enjoy the shallow pools surrounded by giant boulders. A further walk down the beach and through a short trail in the woods takes you over to another boulder strewn beach at Little Trunk that has even less people on it. Walk down that beach and on another short trail in the woods brings you to Valley Trunk, an lovely stretch of sand that is often deserted. Spring Bay is also a short walk down the road from Mad Dog's sandwiches and libations. Mad Dog is next door to the Baths. At the top of the two trails to the Baths are three shops and the Top of the Baths restaurant, another fine place to eat and drink.

There are other things to do on the island but the area around the Baths is unique and a must see on a day trip to Virgin Gorda.

Looking forward to being in your part of the world next year as my wife and I take our boys to Vancouver and Vancouver Island to celebrate our honeymoon visit there 20 years ago. I hear Tofino is not as sleepy as it use to be.
