The Bubbly Pool
A short distance from Foxy's Taboo restaurant at Diamond Cay on Jost Van Dyke, you'll find another British Virgin Islands geological delight known as the "Bubbly Pool".
This unbelievably spot is much akin to a natural Jacuzzi. If you visit while the tide is up, it can be quite invigorating!
The rock formation located on the rugged northern coast of Jost Van Dyke funnels waves through a very narrow passage into this small, natural pool.
There's no need to worry about an undertow or being dragged out to sea ... you are perfectly safe (and contained) here. Its great fun for the whole family! I think the deepest area is about 5 feet.
To get here, you'll cross a short peninsula separating Long Bay and a salt pond shown in the picture above. Follow this easily navigated goat path around the salt pond and through the waste high, wild sage bushes. You won't get lost as long as you stay on the path ... and even if you do go astray, there really isn't very far to go!
Just wade right in and enjoy this little slice of heaven. Many people like to bring a towel, picnic lunch, drinks and a garbage bag and they'll spend several hours here.
Please use common sense. Small children should not be left alone at any time as the waves can easily overpower them. This is a great spot for kids and adults of all ages when things start bubbling!
Take your garbage with you!
