Jost Van Dyke
The uncomplicated simplicity of Jost Van Dyke with its swaying palm trees, spectacular views and beautiful White Bay beach are complimented by her charming residents. This unhurried oasis in the British Virgin Islands evokes visions of the ideal, Caribbean dream vacation.
White Bay beach and the picturesque village of Great Harbour are currently the most popular and more established island locales ... but Little Harbour and Diamond Cay are rapidly becoming quite popular too!
White Bay offers a dramatically beautiful beach with numerous bars and restaurants including, Soggy Dollar and Ivan's Stress Free Bar, while Great Harbour. Jost Van Dyke is home to Foxy's Beach Bar and restaurant, Corsair's, Ali Babas, Rudy's and more. This island should most definitely be placed on your "must see" list when you visit the British Virgin Islands.
Little Harbour is a quiet anchorage with only a handful of businesses and three restaurants renowned for their delicious lobster dinners. Diamond Cay is a new area of development with a marina, Foxy's Taboo Restaurant and bar and one of nature's little secrets, the Bubbly Pool!
I've had a marvelous time on each of my visits, and have taken hundreds of pictures. Unfortunately, not all are that great, but I hope you enjoy the pictures we have in our photo gallery.
If you'd like a tour of the island, rent an ATV at the Sea & Land Adventure Center, in White Bay or rent a car. If you don't feel like driving, you won't find a nicer taxi driver than Foxy's son, Greg Callwood. He's a gracious man with a warm smile and appealing nature!
I can also recommend both car rental agencies. I usually use Abe's ... just because he is such a sweet guy and kind enough to let me leave the car at the ferry dock when I'm ready to go back home to Tortola.
There are only a few roads, but you certainly won't be bored as you tour the rugged terrain. I strongly suggest you do not imbibe prior to hitting the road! If you are feeling adventurous, drive along the Mountain Trail. Much of it is a grass path as seen in the picture above. All roads lead to another wonderful spot, full of surprises, wild goats and views to humble even the most seasoned traveler.
