Virgin Gorda is one of the islands in the archipelago and was once called 'the fat virgin' by Christopher Columbus. It is very well-known for its unusual geological formation called The Baths, which is a popular tourist attraction where you can discover these gigantic rocks and mysterious caves.

Copper Mine lies in the south of the island. This national park contains the ruins of an abandoned copper mine dating from the 19th century. There are few cultural sites on the island; the nature and heavenly scenery are the main attractions here. The Dog Islands in the west are a group of six islands that are protected for their bird colonies. Virgin Gorda can also boast being home to many unique species, such as the tortoises of the Galapagos Islands, the marine iguana, the frigatebird and the Galapagos falcon.

Fans of scuba diving will be in heaven here, since the coral reefs are home to an incredible diversity of tropical marine life that lives in the warm waters of the islands.
