Virgin Gorda is the second-largest island in the British Virgin Islands. The island, of volcanic origin, is made up of several distinctly different areas. A beautiful mountainous center is the location of Gorda Peak National Park. As well as the North Sound, the Beach Coast, The Baths, and the Valley, which is the island’s main habitation. Columbus named this island Virgin Gorda meaning “fat virgin“. He named it because of its shape as seen on the sea’s horizon.
Virgin Gorda, like the other British Virgin Islands, has tropical, hot temperatures throughout the year. However, the heat is tempered by the trade winds, with a more pleasant period from December to March. At that time the daily average temperature is around 75-77 °F. It is hotter from May to October when the daily average is around 82 °F.
Certainly, all of the crystal clear waters surrounding Virgin Gorda’s beaches are excellent for snorkeling and scuba. Several of the most popular beaches are listed here.
