ROCK CLIMBING & BOULDERING
Virgin Gorda is best known for the collection of massive granite boulders on its southern peninsula at an area called The Baths. These boulders are the result of ancient volcanic eruptions that pushed these giant boulders up to the earth’s surface. The boulders range in size from just few feet to 60 feet tall.
At The Baths, the boulders make for some incredible snorkeling and offer unlimited opportunities for fun. There are caves to swim in, arches to climb, ledges to jump off, and narrow passages to walk, wade, or swim through.
For rock climbers, the rock formations found in this area offer a Bouldering paradise. Grape Tree Villa is a few minutes walk from The Baths and the house sits amongst a giant boulder field. The property is filled with limitless climbing opportunities. Grape Tree Villa is the perfect destination for climbers looking to make the most of their time on Virgin Gorda!
