Stop at Copper Mine Point while touring Virgin Gorda island to immerse yourself in a fascinating historical site.

Be sure to bring your camera, as the site affords beautiful views of the ocean. There is little information available onsite, so it’s worth researching the mine's interesting history before you go.

  • The drive to the Copper Mine provides some great views, and the mine ruins are nice to see. The government has done a nice job of installing markers with a little historical summary.  more »
  • The historic site of a copper mine that is now abandoned. It sits on a cliff overlooking the sea and makes for a great photography location. The area is also used by the locals for fishing but visitors should be careful because the seas in this area are very rough it is not advised to enter the water. You can however collect some of of the naturally occuring copper which makes a great souvenir.
  • Lots of minerals in rocks to look at. Great view. Nice piece of history. Loved it!!!
