I am going on a cruise to Tortola and the reason i booked that specific cruise was because i fell in love with the Baths at virgin gorda. But after reading the reviews on this excursion i am not sure if it is even smart to do it since we will have our 10 mth old with us. the excursion does the hike and I'm sure we will be bringing a carrier to do the hike. Do you recommend it?

I don't think it's doable on an organized hike. Much of the exploration is tricky even for somebody able-bodied and the encumbrance of a baby would, I think, be really hazardous. What you might do is check with the ship personnel for babysitting services for that day. Good luck and have fun!

My wife and I took our daughter to The Baths when she was 10 months old just 2 years ago. However, she stayed back at the beach by the restaurant with her grandmother as we hiked through the boulder trail. There is a trail that runs through the scrub vegetation to Devil's Bay that would not be a dangerous as the boulder trail. Maybe someone could hike the less treacherous trail with the child...

Ok thats perfect actually. I am more interested in the beach than the hike itself. So as long as there is a way to get to the beach I'm good. And the beach you're saying is the one with all the big rocks correct?

Yep! Horseshoe shaped beach with boulders on both sides. The trail takes about 15-20 minutes to walk and will be uphill on the way back.

Just be sure to follow the signs for Devil's Bay. If you go towards The Baths you will have to hike through the caves/boulder trail in order to get to the beach. I am certain a guide with your excursion can point out the trail to you. Enjoy your vacation!
