The Baths

No trip to BVI would be complete without seeing The Baths on Virgin Gorda. Ever wonder how those giant boulders got there?

Well, the answer is not a mystery.   In a time of volcanic activity in the area, molten rock seeped into volcanic rock below the surface and slowly cooled forming a hard crystalline granite layer below ground. This layer cracked over time and formed large granite blocks. Over the years the softer volcanic rock was eroded away leaving the hard granite blocks exposed. Years of erosion and weathering rounded the corners of these blocks leaving us what we see today.
