Photos of Virgin Gorda Designed Around Boulders

Virgin Gorda’s homes, landscapes and roads are designed around granite boulders. According to BVI Welcome, these boulders were formed about 50 million years ago through a process that pushed slabs of molten rock up from the ocean floor. The cooling of the rock and weathering caused them to contract, crack and pock making each one unique.
