Gorgeous granite formations on a beautiful beach. Best times to visit are early morning (8:30 to 9am) or late afternoon (3:00-4:30pm) after the daytrippers leave, especially if you are trying to take serious photos. Avoid days when cruise ships are there (call ahead to determine), so that the Baths are less crowded. It is safe to leave your stuff unattended on the beach while you snorkel, but there are lockers if so desired. The best snorkeling is around the boulders (or going to nearby Spring Bay; on left when facing the beach). If you have unsteady footing, consider wearing sandals to walk through the Baths as there are ropes and ladders to negotiate (and the sand can get quite hot). Definitely bring a camera. For food, there is the Poor Man’s Beach bar (right on the beach), the Top of the Baths (most expensive, at the top of the hill), and just past the Top of the Baths (through the parking lot) is Mad Dog café—a reasonably priced sandwich shop (cheaper than the Top of the Baths, but with a lesser view). If you are staying on Virgin Gorda (ie, not a daytripper) an excellent thing to do after a day at the Baths is to go to Coppermine Point and then watch the sunset from Mine Shaft Café.
