Virgin Gorda, July 2004 - People relax on the giant rocks at Spring Bay on the island of Virgin Gorda in the British Virgin Islands.
Spring Bay sits next to The Baths, a popular attraction for both tourists and locals for swimming and snorkeling. The beach shows evidence of the island's volcanic origins, which deposited granite that eroded into piles of boulders on the beach. The boulders form natural tidal pools, tunnels, arches and scenic grottoes that are open to the sea. The largest boulders are about 40 feet (12 meters) long. In 1990 the area the area was set aside as a National Park.
