The Baths, British Virgin Islands, part 2

The Baths is such a beautiful beach. I don't have many experience with beaches so pardon me if I gush about this beach. In my very limited experience I must declare this as one of the best beaches I've ever been. We would love to stay and dip in the blue waters, but we wanted to explore Devil's Bay. We heard going there is such an adventure. Let the adventure begin.

Once we emerged from the caves, we found ourselves in natural pools that were made possible by large boulders. I could have stayed here, but we had to move on. Still we took our time here. It is so beautiful. As a matter of fact, if time is not a concern I would have loved to stay in the caves for a bit longer.

From this point, it was a short walk to the beach. We found a grotto by the beach that was so magical. At the beach, we stopped taking photos and enjoyed the surroundings. Pretty soon, the tide rose and our grotto sanctuary was under water. It was our cue to go back and catch our bus and ferry back to Tortola.

On the trail to the parking lot, there are a lot of cactus, which was quite curious to be honest with you. I would have not expected cactus in this setting.

We managed to catch our bus and our ferry back to Tortola. What a short time we spent here, which made us all the more hungry to spend more time here, especially in the Baths. New bucket list item.

  8. What a fabulous place to have fun! Just curious - is it called the Baths because the water is warm?

  11. This is such and amazing place! Don't you love the Caribbean? Is this area shallow or you visited when the tide was low? I would like to walk around the boulders since I cannot swim. #OurWorldTuesday
