Virgin Gorda Excursions
The dramatic shape of the BVI's third largest island, Virgin Gorda, reminded Christopher Columbus of a reclining woman, or "Fat Virgin," inspiring its name. Measuring 8.5 square miles, Virgin Gorda entices travelers with its yacht clubs, quiet coves, safe anchorages and luxury resorts and villas. Natural beauty is in abundance and accessible via indigenous plant-lined trails, nature sanctuaries and natural wonders of our protected national parks. Hike to the island's high point, Gorda Peak, for a splendid panoramic view of the surrounding islands.
