5th Ultimate Adventure: BVI

Day Five - August 2, 2012

Departing: Spanish Town, Virgin Gorda
Day Stop: The Baths
Night Stop: Trellis Bay, Tortola

The midpoint of our trip is a short motor to The Baths, then a short sail across the Channel to Trellis Bay. Our day stop is at The Baths, a world-famous volcanic rock formation, are located just south of Spanish Town. The rocks, created during the volcanic origins of the entire Virgin Islands chain, form sea caves within their jumbled formation where they meet the shoreline. Trellis Bay is a tranquil, extremely well protected bay near Beef Island, a small island attached to Tortola that houses Tortola's airport. The primary reason for this stop is the Full Moon Party, a monthly celebration of the full moon by the locals, with major celebrations at several places, including Trellis Bay.

Day Stop: The Baths.

TCreated by the fiery volcanic process that gave birth to the entire Virgin Island chain, The Baths are a world famous collection of large boulders jumbled on the beach just south of Spanish Town. The jumble of boulders creates sea caves, making for excellent pictures on land and great snorkeling from the water.
