A “Fat Virgin” in the Caribbean Sea

Local lore has it that the unusual shape of this little bit of paradise reminded Christopher Columbus of a reclining, voluptuous woman, so he named it Virgin Gorda, the "Fat Virgin." She is suitably adorned with dramatic heights that plunge down from Gorda Peak to the sparkling turquoise waters far below.

This is a good place to explore in a Jeep, swim with dolphins, or hike the rugged trails throughout the island. Virgin Gorda is most famous for The Baths, where giant granite boulders are strewn across the beach and in the water, creating pools, caves, and grottos – a sort of natural water park.
