“Beautiful Beach”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 January 2012

Devil's Bay is one of your picture-perfect beaches that you think of when you think "tropical island gettaway."

Devil's Bay has the perfect crescent moon shape with warm boulders scattered around on the fine sandy beach. The bay itself is deep enough for any typical sailboat or yacht, though there are only a few moorings and anchoring in the BVI is illegal except at designated places.

By land, you can reach Devil's Bay by taking a 10-15 minute path from Top of the Baths or from the Baths themselves. If you are looking for a good place to lay out for the day and you want to tote in some chairs and a cooler or something, you should try another beach, as Devil's Bay is a bit too far to lug a bunch of stuff from the nearest parking area.

It is worth a visit and a swim though.

If you want to see some impressive Atlantic waves crashing up on boulders, venture over to the Atlantic side, access this rocky beach from Devil's Bay by way of another lesser-travelled trail on the far end of Devil's Bay.

“Go When The Cruise Ships Aren't In!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 January 2012

Devils Bay is really a spectacular beach, but what's great about it is that it's hard to get to, surrounded by amazing rock formations and secluded. The experience is really destroyed when the cruise ships bus in tons of tourists, especially when they bring motor boats into the bay. It's a not-to-be-missed destination on Virgin Gorda, but ask when the cruise ships are coming and pick another day.

“Nice little beach”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 January 2012

Not worth a separate trip, but worth packaging with a trip to The Baths.
