White Bay Beach, Jost Van Dyke in the BVI

JVD_White_Bay_Beach White Bay Beach, Jost Van Dyke in the BVI
The soothing Caribbean colours, shimmering aquamarine water, blue sky and lush, green hills are punctuated by this gorgeous, palm lined beach. Many have sung the praises of this picture perfect bay ... and for good reason! White Bay is simply gorgeous and you'll find several terrific beach bars here.

In the early 1990's, the place was almost always deserted with the exception of a handful of residents, three or four beach bars, one small hotel, a smattering of yacht charter guests ... "in the know" and a handful of other visitors. However, since the road was built and they got electricity, it has been discovered.

In the morning, before the day trippers arrive or in off season, you'll find it to be one of the most beautiful and peaceful beaches in the British Virgin Islands.

There's something very special about this part of paradise which I really can't describe. Every time I come to Jost Van Dyke, I'm compelled to go swimming and always feel totally invigorated. I swear there's something different in the water here!

If you are in the area near One Love Beach Bar in the morning, don't be surprised if you run into some rather unusual beach goers enjoying a swim in these lovely aquamarine waters. They were born here! :)
