History of Virgin Gorda

The island of Virgin Gorda was inhabited for many years by Carib Indians who lived peacefully off the land in farming and fishing villages. These indigenous people made do by using the islands abundance of natural resources and trading with one another. Eventually the island was settled by the British and like its many neighboring islands, Virgin Gorda was frequently visited by some of histories most notorious pirates.

The settlers began growing sugar crops and soon there were plantations all over the island. Plantation owners became very involved in the slave trade that flourished throughout the British Virgin Islands. Much of the Virgin Gorda’s economy was based on sugar crops and slave trade so when slavery was abolished the island suffered greatly.

As technology and transportation advanced over the years, more and more travelers were able to reach the island. The increased traffic eventually led to full blown tourism and the island’s economy started its come back.
