Jost Van Dyke, British Virgin Islands

White Bay, Jost Van Dyke, BVI
White Bay, Jost Van Dyke

Five miles west of Tortola, lies Jost Van Dyke, a four-square mile island, reputed to be a hideout for the Dutch pirate this island is named after. The main village of Jost Van Dyke is located along the sandy beach of Great Harbour and is a mandatory stop for sailors and a must see day trip for anyone staying on Tortola. A mountainous island, with beaches at White Bay and Great Harbour Bay on the south coast, Jost Van Dyke is home to less than 300 residents. Hotel accommodations are modest and cater mostly to the yachting enthusiast.



Attractions
Foxy's Tamarind Bar
The most famous bar anywhere on the BVI.
Foxy's Taboo Restaurant and Bar
Foxy's 2nd resturant located beside Diamond Cay on Long Bay Beach.
The Bubbly Pool
The Bubbly Pool, "Nature's Jacuzzi" is a naturally formed tidal pool located behind jagged cliffs facing the open ocean coming from the North. When the North swell is up, the experience is phenomenal as you wade in the pool and watch the rolling sea come at you with full force! As it looks as if the wave will go straight over you, the unique formation outside the pool prematurely breaks the wave and the resulting "bubbles" fill up the pool.
Beaches
Great Harbour Beach
The island's arrival point with its white sandy horseshoe shape, Great Harbour Beach offers a fabulous water sport facility with friendly and casual beach bars and restaurants for you to enjoy. Dinghy docks are available.
White Bay Beach
Voted one of the top 10 beaches in the world by Caribbean Travel & Life. This long stretch of white sandy palm lined beach is protected by a great snorkeling reef. You can anchor close to shore, swim to the beach and visit the award winning beach bars.
Sandy Spit Beach
Reachable by boat, this completely remote beach is definitely worth any sailor's trip across the other side. Great snorkeling in a relaxed atmosphere can be enjoyed here.
Sandy Cay
A tiny island off the southeast coast of Jost Van Dyke, Sandy Cay has a spectacular white sand beach perfect for sunbathing or snorkeling. A path leads to the Cay’s interior and just to its north is the smaller Sandy Spit isle.
Little Jost Van Dyke
Featuring gorgeous stretches of soft white sandy beaches for day anchoring and snorkeling. Nearby dive sites include Twin Towers, two large rock formations rising from 90 feet with smaller rock formations. Eagle Rays and Tarpon are often found here. Be careful as there are occasional currents and heavy swells.
