Did you know...


...the white cedar is the national tree of the BVI!

White Cedar is the best wood for boat building, as it is resistant to rotting and termites. It is great for making traditional BVI sloops out of, the design is over 100 years old! H. Lavity Stout College has restored three traditional BVI sloops at their maritime division over the years.


During Carnival in August each year both the Governor and Premier of the BVI enjoy racing the classic sloops.



The white cedar tree in Latin translates to 'The Tree of Life'


Conch's Fab Spot of the Month  

Top of the Baths Restaurant

 It's exactly where it says it is...on the hillside above the Baths on Virgin Gorda! 



Open for breakfast, brunch and lunch, enjoy amazing panoramic views on their decking area looking back towards Tortola and up to the Dogs. Their menu offers traditional Caribbean dishes and freshly caught fish. They also offer Sushi at lunch times! 


You have to try one of their own cocktail creations, the 'Boulder Roller'! It contains over 5 different types of spirits mixed with fruit juices. Watch your step as you head back down the hill towards your boat!

On site they have a pool and a collection of shops for you to explore as well!

Make sure you stop in after exploring one of the BVI's most famous spots, even if it is only for a quick drink. They have a pool and a collection of shops for you to explore as well!
