Virgin Gorda, BVI: Planning Group Activities for Wedding Guests

virgin-gorda-the-bathsVirgin Gorda is the third largest island in the British Virgin Islands and then second most populated.

Virgin Gorda truly looks like paradise and it’s an extremely romantic destination, making it perfect for a beach wedding.

It’s smart and helpful to make a list of popular local attractions and activities for your wedding guests.

Since they’re coming from out-of-town and may not be familiar with the Caribbean or Virgin Gorda, they’ll probably be clueless when they have free time.

Besides your wedding day, your guests will want to do things that they are interested and enjoy. Your recommendations will help them choose what they want to do! There is something to do for everyone in Virgin Gorda.

The Baths

The top attraction in Virgin Gorda is by far The Baths. The Baths are giant boulders brought to the surface by volcanic eruptions. They form a grotto and calm pools. It’s a gorgeous sight to see and definitely a spot on the island that guests will want to visit.

Guests can swim in between and around The Baths and climb the boulders. Water shoes and a waterproof camera are recommended! There’s also a bar where you can enjoy food and drinks. The Baths is truly a special and magical place and you’ll definitely enjoy exploring it.

Spring Beach is right next to The Baths and is a great place for snorkeling. The water is turquoise and crystal clear! It’s also very secluded and romantic. If The Baths are too crowded, just come to this beautiful beach for a peaceful swim.

Scuba Diving

The waters surrounding this island are perfect for scuba diving. For Virgin Gorda wedding groups that want to explore the marine life, Dive BVI is a great option for them to check out.

Dive BVI is highly recommended and you’ll have a very memorable experience! They have multiple options to choose from, including chartering a private boat which might be nice for wedding guests.

One of the most popular scuba diving sites in Virgin Gordas is the Wreck of the Chikuzen. In 1981 the Chikuzen sunk after catching fire. It has attracted a variety of different marine life and many scuba divers!

The Wreck of the Chikuzen is completely isolated and pretty far out, so it’s only recommended to go there when the water is very calm. Fortunately the water is almost alway clear which is nice! You can have Dive BVI take you to this destination if the water conditions are right.


For Virgin Gorda wedding groups that want to go sailing, the Spirit of Anegada is a popular choice. It sails out of the yacht harbour and is a relaxing and beautiful excursion!

The crew knows the best destinations in the British Virgin Islands and the best places for snorkeling. The boat can fit up to 20 people, however, they prefer groups of 10. It’s a great way to see the islands by boat!

Sail Bravura and La Boheme Charters are two other recommended options. Sail Bravura only offers private day sailing charters, so wedding guests will want to get a group together and choose either 3 hours, 5 hours or 7 hours.

The best parts about Sail Bravura is that since you and your family or friends are the only ones on the boat, you get to choose your destinations. All sailing options also include open bar on the yacht and some include a catered lunch.

La Boheme Charters offers half day, full day and sunset charters and accommodates up to 12 guests. They offer open bar as well and some appetizers. Chartering a yacht is a great way to see a few islands or destinations and be brought to the best snorkeling spots!


For wedding guests that want some exercise, change of scenery, or just something to do other than sunbathe and explore the water, hiking is the perfect group activity! One of the most popular hiking trails is Virgin Gorda Peak.

Virgin Gorda Peak has a viewing platform when you reach the top, so bring your cameras! If you go in the morning you can even see the sunrise. It’s a breathtaking place on the island!

Virgin Gorda wedding groups will appreciate any recommendations when it comes to things to do and places to see on the island and anywhere else in the British Virgin Islands. They will want to make the best of their trip and see everything that this beautiful Caribbean destination has to offer!
