As mentioned before The Baths is the most famous landmark in the BVI. There are so many boulders around the beaches here that they have formed pools and grottoes underneath the stones. Heidi Klum did her H&M shooting here a few years ago and I bet this wasn't the only advertising that was shot here. For a reason: It's very scenic. And great fun, too.
So let me explain what you can do here:
If you are not feeling adventurous you can drive to the car park above The Baths, pay 3$ national park fee and walk down the stairs to the beach and just relax on the lovely but popular beach.
We were lucky and came here on a very quiet day but you wouldn't want to come here on a "cruise ship day". The local newspapers publish a list with cruise ship arrivals by the way. Like this you can be sure to choose a good day!
Your other option is to go down to Devil's Bay, in my opinion the beach here is even nicer than The Baths. Shadow is hard to find here though!
If you feel like crawling, climbing ladders and wading through water try the path from The Baths to Devil's Bay - or as we did it - the other way around. Climbing over stones barefoot was a little scary for me at first but when I got used to it I started to enjoy it a lot. At some spots you have to crawl underneath big boulders, at other places there are ladders or even a rope that helps you over the obstacles. We even got lost on our way once. It took us a while to figure out which was the correct way to get to the beach.
Very close to The Baths there is a cathedral like dark hall underneath the boulders witch a deep pool. My favourite spot! So if you chose the unadventurous version make sure to see at least this place. It's only one boulder you have to climb to get there (the one with the rope!).
Another option: If you bring your snorkelling equipment you can snorkel from one beach to the other.
