Virgin Gorda is the third largest of the British Virgin Islands, and a popular destination for anybody who is looking to charter in the Caribbean. Said to have been named the 'Fat Virgin' by Christopher Columbus, the island's profile on the horizon looks like a fat woman lying on her side. If you're looking to charter a yacht to explore Virgin Gorda, The Baths are a necessary stop-off point.
The Baths are situated about 2 km south off the main town Spanish Town at the southern tip of the island between Spring Bay and Devil's Bay. The beach here shows evidence of how the BVI were formed through volcanic activity. White sand beaches are scattered with huge granite boulders, which create spectacular grottos with sea pools reflecting the light that shines down on them. The boulders form an inviting maze, which you can clamber through as you explore. The Baths provide an excellent chance to marvel at the wonders the world can create, so taking your yacht around to view them will leave you stunned. Along with such beauty on land, snorkelling in the warm waters will also amaze you. Around The Baths you will find a great range of fish and rays; if you're lucky you may even spot a herd of seahorses in the clear blue sea.
If you are looking to explore Virgin Gorda and The Baths, GYPSY PRINCESS is an excellent choice to charter. A stunning Lagoon 450, she was one of the favourites at the BVI Yacht Show, where she won Best Catamaran Under 55ft. GYPSY PRINCESS has a very experienced and friendly crew, who will welcome you on board for an unforgettable sailing vacation. New this year, she has 3 spacious cabins and will comfortably accommodate 6 guests, whether you choose to spend time inside or on the padded sun deck which is perfect for catching some rays.
