Carvel Rock 18°22′23″N 64°29′19″W / 18.372929°N 64.488524°W / 18.372929; -64.488524 is an uninhabited islet of the British Virgin Islands in the Caribbean, less than 2 acres (8,100 m2) in size. It lies at the southern edge of the archipelago, south of and roughly between Ginger Island and Cooper Island.

The waters around it are a scuba diving site, but its sheer cliffs and lack of a beach make landing practically impossible.[1][2][3]
