There was one more ruin site (what classifies something as a ruin anyway?) we saw on a local Virgin Gorda map and wanted to check out. I searched for more information about the location online before we drove over to check it out...there wasn't much info (it is on Google maps though) and hardly any pictures. We were looking for the stone ruins of a centuries old sugar mill plantation. The search engines kept taking me to some fancy rental property (which turns out is right next door).
We chanced it and drove to Nail Bay looking for, well, something, anything...and we found it. Okay, we at first drove past it, scratched our heads a little bit, then turned around and finally found it (it's by the sign, who would of thought?). Pretty cool stuff! It's on the way to the North Sound - let's call it the scenic drive to the North Sound. It's an almost completed road that actually goes around Gorda Peak instead of straight up and down it like the other road! There's not much to it but it's worth a look - don't expect to make a day of it.

If you're looking for rest, relaxation, and natural beauty, then Nail Bay is for you! Not only did it not disappoint, but it exceedingly surpassed all our expectations from the reviews we read on Trip Advisor. Happened been to the ruins though but we'll definitely visit them when we return.
