Pond Bay Beach - Virgin Gorda

VG_Pond_Bay_Beach Pond Bay Beach - Virgin Gorda
This is the ideal beach for sailors looking for seclusion and a stunning place to spend a lovely afternoon sunning and swimming, provided Mother Nature cooperates of course.

Pond Bay is located right beside Savannah Bay Beach and the two share the same attributes as well as the same entrance by sea. The main difference between the two is that Pond Bay is more difficult to access by land, unless of course you are staying in one of the villas overlooking the beach.

For land-based adventurers, the only way to walk in is via a rather long trail, that begins just off the main road, where the North Sound Road splits off into a "Y" at Pond Bay. The trail skirts a salt pond and takes me about 12 minutes to traverse. Here you will not find any public BBQ, washrooms or palapas ... so come prepared. Bring lots of water with you.

Those who make the effort to walk in will be rewarded as there are more trees lining the beach offering much more shade from the sun than you'll find at Savannah Bay. This is an exquisite spot under the right sea and weather conditions but when the wind is blowing, the very fine sand can become quite annoying as it is constantly blown in your face and eyes.
