The Baths and Devils Bay, National Park, British Virgin Islands

(located in The Valley)
The Baths and Devils bay are two national parks side by side with a trail leading from one to the other. After arriving at the car park or dropoff/pickup area you will have to make a 15 minute walk through dry scrub vegatation and granite boulders to either the baths or devils bay. It does not matter which one you choose to go to first because hikers can cross over to the other park by crawling, climbing ladders and wade throught waters. Caution must be used at all times to avoid slipping and falling.

Both parks have tranquil locations for swimming and snorkeling or just relaxing under shaded umbrellas. Enormous Boulders with nested sea pools, caves and a white sandy beach area. Vessels can use mooring buoys outside both parks, and swim line markers guide vessels through safe channels when approaching the beaches.

Many people who visit the baths always wonder in amazement how did such large boulders end in such peculiar positions. The surroundings are a result of molten rock seeping up into the existing volcanic rock layers; because the molton rock did not reach the surface it cooled slowly and formed the hard crystalline granite layer. Further shrinkage and cracking formed blocks, which were exposed when the softer volcanic rock above eroded away.

Lost my watch on Tuesday, March 27 at Devils Bay beach -- the watch was a swiss army watch, metal wrist band with a black face -- I was with the Breakaway Tour out of Sapphire Bay, St. Thomas -- Thank You, Bruce Long (816-365-2626)
