Virgin Gorda is the second-largest of the British Virgin Islands. Christopher Columbus is said to have named the island "The Fat Virgin," because its silhouette resembles a rotund woman lying on her back. Virgin Gorda is one of the BVI's major tourist destinations, largely because of an unusual geologic formation known as "The Baths" located on the southern end of the island. At The Baths, the beach shows evidence of the island's volcanic origins, as huge granite boulders lie in piles on the beach, forming scenic grottoes that are open to the sea. Swimming and snorkeling are the main attractions here.
