About the Location:
The array of boulders comprising The Baths on Virgin Gorda are a layer of ancient volcanic granite eroded into tidal pools, tunnels, arches and grottoes. It is a must-visit for vacationers to swim and snorkel. The images set among the rocks and in the water were captured here.
Our host, and backdrop for images on land, was Scrub Island Resort, Spa & Marina. The British Virgin Islands’ newest boutique luxury resort is set on a private island, just a short boat or helicopter ride from Tortola or Virgin Gorda. A marriage of modern amenities and raw natural beauty, the resort is a magnet for the elite yachting community: 100-foot yachts are commonplace—but sail and motorboats are just as welcome. Scrub Island has a contemporary design with lots of high ceilings and wide-open spaces, and keeps it intimate with only 50 rooms and suites total. All of them ocean view. Three private beaches are perfect for whiling away the hours in paradise. North Beach features classic views and a bar and grill where tropical drinks await. Pavilion Beach is for watersports, like kayaking and paddleboarding and the best snorkeling in the area. Honeymoon Beach is a secluded romantic getaway accessible only by kayak. If more relaxation is required, The Ixora Spa has a host of massages, skin treatments, baths and yoga classes.
