|The Baths National Park|
One of many baths found among scattered volcanic boulders
|Location||Virgin Gorda, British Virgin Islands|
The Baths are situated about 1.2 miles (1.9 km) south off the maintown Spanish Town at the southern tip of the island between Spring Bay and Devil's Bay. The Baths are an area of unique geologic formations and one of the BVI's major tourist destinations.
At The Baths, the beach shows evidence of the island's volcanic origins, which deposited granite that eroded into piles of boulders on the beach. The boulders form natural tidal pools, tunnels, arches, and scenic grottoes that are open to the sea. The largest boulders are about 40 feet (12 m) long.
