The Baths are a beach area on the island of Virgin Gorda among the British Virgin Islands in the Caribbean. The Baths are situated about a mile south off the main town (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 long. Since 1990 the area has been a BVI National Park as are the adjacent bays, and the area is a major tourist attraction, with swimming and snorkeling being the main attractions.
