Spring Bay Virgin Gorda

To the east of The Baths is Spring Bay. The giant boulders line the beach and there are excellent swimming and snorkeling opportunities for novices and professionals alike. The well-manicured lawn leading to the beach is also a favorite for picnic and recreational games.

The National Park Trust has recently put in swings and added picnic benches to further enhance the park. Its small coves, which provide safe snorkeling are popular with charter boat guests, who moor their boats in the area. Massive boulders form coves that allow a steady but calm flow of water back and forth.

Marine life is vibrant at Spring Bay since fishing is not permitted. A unique enclosure of boulders forms a natural pool called The Crawl. In the past, this was used by fishermen to hold turtles and fishes alive until they were ready to be used.
