Virgin Gorda is one of the best-kept secrets in the Caribbean.

With a year-round sunny, mild climate, world-class beaches, excellent dining, and abundant natural beauty, Virgin Gorda’s and the BVI’s extraordinary qualities have been touted in dozens of travel magazines and websites, including Conde Nast Traveler (Reader’s Choice Top 10 Island’s in the Caribbean and Atlantic), the New York Times, and Travel + Leisure as well as on countless travel blogs and websites.

One of 36 islands that make up the British Virgin Islands, Virgin Gorda is relatively untouched by mass tourism, and is known for its tranquil and secluded beaches, friendly people, and premier sailing and diving locations. The currency is the U.S. dollar and either a passport or birth certificate is accepted for entry into the BVI’s.

Virgin Gorda is one of the premier snorkeling and diving sites in the world, as well as as world-class sailing destination. Explore the Island and find out why our guests return Bellamare year after year.

Things To Do on Virgin Gorda

One of the many reasons people come to Virgin Gorda is the world class diving. Whether you are a novice or an experienced diver you can be at one of many beautiful dive sites within 30 minutes of leaving Spanishtown harbor. We never tire of diving the various coral gardens and canyons located in the nearby surrounding islands. For those of you who enjoy wreck diving there are several worth noting, the Coral Gardens, Wreck Alley off Cooper Island, the Chikuzan and the famous HMS Rhone.
