Gay Virgin Gorda
Virgin Gorda is naturally a smallish island, about eight square miles, just a couple of miles from Tortola and its airport on Beef Island. During 2001, the populace was 3100. The southwestern section of the island is named the Valley. In this region of low moderate hills will be discovered the majority of the inhabitants, businesses and services, primarily close to Spanish Town, the capital. Beneath Spanish Town, the surroundings and seascapes are spotted with granite boulders as big as houses; these supply grand settings for lodgings, restaurants and beaches. As the focus of the island, small mountain rises from the ocean to about 1350 feet. All of this area is sparingly inhabited, apart from small neighborhoods in the North Sound region on its northeastern edge. Stretching northeast after that is a chain of wooded hills reachable only by boat. An opportune outing to one of the most amazing outer island areas in Virgin Gorda would call for jumping on the local Resort Ferry (Bitter End etc) in Gun Creek. This Ferry normally takes you on a short, but neat cruise directly into heart of the North Sound area. Small islands in this area add to the very cozy harbors in the sound.
