Copper Mine National Park is a forlorn place offering a glance into the chunk of the history of the islands.
After driving along the snaking road, one will reach a lonely place situated at the southwest tip of Virgin Gorda Island. However, the hard work of reaching there is worth it with the remarkable sight of stone ruins there that includes a chimney, cistern and mineshaft house, all forming a part of the park. The place was once the working venue of Cornish miners between 1838 and 1867 where they extracted about 10,000 tons of copper and then abandoned it. One will also find few trails meandering through the ruins with a beautiful backdrop of blue sea.
