The main attraction on Virgin Gorda - many day trippers come from other islands especially to see this! The best time to visit this fascinating rocky landscape above and below the water (take snorkeling equipment along) is early in the morning or late in the afternoon, when it is a picturesque, dreamy place.

Drive to the old copper mine, currently being restored. The area is littered with rocks containing copper (please do not remove from site). The sea is unusually rough here, and the crashing waves are an interesting sight.
The copper mine ruins became the 20th National Park in the BVI’s in 2003, it’s one of the historical gems in the BVI.
Amerindians were the first to mine the area in the 1400’s, then Columbus noticed copper on Virgin Gorda. In the 1500’s, the Spanish mined in the area, while in the 1800’s through 1900’s, the English continued to extract copper and molybdenite from the mine. It’s a wonderful place to visit with easy access.
Rent a boat for a day
Exploring the wonderful islands by boat is an unforgettable experience. The boat owner or skipper will tell you the best areas for snorkeling. For example, feed the tropical fish off Necker Island. Have lunch on Saba Rock, in Marina Cay or at Willy T, a restaurant ship off Norman Island. And on the way home, enjoy the sight of the sun setting over the sea!
