Diamond Cay - Jost Van Dyke, BVI

spacer Diamond Cay, British Virgin Islands
Diamond Cay, British Virgin Islands

For nearly two centuries, Diamond Cay (which is now a BVI National Park) and Little Jost Van Dyke had been left virtually untouched, since the time of Doctor William Thornton - 1759 to 1828.

Thornton was a visionary who possessed many enviable talents! Educated in Scotland as a medical doctor, he was also a very gifted sketch artist, painter and amateur architect.

Thornton submitted an architectural design to a contest commissioned by U.S. President, George Washington in 1792. Washington was immediately taken with his plan which was ultimately chosen as the winner! William Thornton is recognized as the original designer of the U.S. Capital Building.

Another British Virgin Islander with vision is Foxy Callwood, who is always able to recognize a good business opportunity! In July, 2003, he opened "Foxy's Taboo Restaurant and Bar" beside Diamond Cay on Long Bay Beach, Jost Van Dyke. The name was chosen in memory of Foxy & Tessa's beloved black Labrador Retriever named "Boo".

Taboo burgers are absolutely fabulous and the service is friendly, however ... don't be in a hurry. "Island time" definitely applies here! Further development of the area is imminent and Tessa Callwood has opened her second clothing and gift boutique seen in the picture above, beside Foxy's Taboo!

Diamanod Cay Marina
Diamond Cay Marina, BVI

This new marina will provide dockage, fresh water, fuel and ice for visiting sailors. Its still in the building process ... as many things are in the BVI. There are ten mooring balls in place a few hundred yards off shore for overnight visits. You may pay at Taboo restaurant. Mooring fees are $25.00 per night.

The addition of Taboo Restaurant and Diamond Cay Marina has made this delightful little area a very popular stop over for visitors sailing the British Virgin Islands. Its a lovely, protected area and all that's needed now is a good provisioning store and we'll have yet another "perfect" BVI anchorage!

Bubbly Pool Jost Van Dyke
Bubbly Pool, Jost Van Dyke, BVI

For those who'd like to work off some calories resulting from Foxy's fabulous burgers, hike over to the Bubbly Pool. Bring your running shoes, swim suits and a few cold drinks and think, "goat path"! Visit the Bubbly Pool at high tide or when the swells are up on the north west side of the island for best results. Its one of Nature's Secrets! But use caution please. If the swells are too strong, the Bubbly pool can be dangerous.
