The Sister Island of Virgin Gorda in the [British] Virgin Islands has been chosen by the prestigious Forbes Magazine, as the destination that holds the eighth spot on the list of top destinations to visit in 2023.
Virgin Gorda is the only Caribbean Island to make the prestigious list and the island was featured in an article entitled “Here They Are: The 23 Best Places To Travel In 2023”, where Forbes described Virgin Gorda as “a destination of clear calm waters that offers first-class snorkelling”.
“Virgin Gorda is among the Caribbean’s best-kept secrets, with clear, calm waters and first-class snorkelling. The best way to explore has always been by boat, but with the reopening of the fully renovated Rosewood Little Dix Bay, staying on land is just as magical,” the publication noted.
The island is a sought-after vacation spot for couples, families, snorkelers, and beach bums where visitors are intrigued by The Baths with its huge boulders and pristine turquoise water.
