Virgin Gorda

Virgin Gorda Travel Guide

Virgin Gorda's main strip, Spanish Town, may be a who-cares-if-you-miss-it blip on the radar, but Margo's Jewellery Boutique is an enchanting discovery filled with baubles from India and Turkey.

Located near the yacht harbor in Spanish Town, the shop sells treasures from the sea—starfish, shells, and coins found in shipwrecks from the days of buccaneers.

The island's most famous beach is a series of small coves. Its many granite boulders look like marbles tossed into the blue bay. Tip: go early or late in the day to avoid crowds.

On Saturdays, this renegade outdoor market appears in Spanish Town. Jewelry and sarong designers join forces with DJ's for a lively morning that stretches into the evening (care of more than a few rum punches).

Yachtsmen stop in here for staples, but it’s also the place to put together a gourmet picnic lunch for the beach.
