Virgin Gorda has a dubious name, but a reputation for some of the best food in the Caribbean. Virgin Gorda is the third largest of the British Virgin Islands and it has the second highest population. The name is believed to originate with Christopher Columbus. As the story goes, Columbus was looking over the horizon of the island and saw a mass of land he thought looked like a large, curvaceous woman lying on her side. Maybe that is why the island is so temping and draws so many people in the first place.
Virgin Gorda’s appeal is far-reaching. From its white sand beaches and breath-taking views, to its quaint towns and villages, there is something here for everyone. The dining scene is no exception; if it tickles your fancy you will find it here.
