White Bay, Jost Van Dyke

White Bay Beach, Jost Van Dyke

The British Virgin Islands possess several Caribbean jewels ... and White Bay, Jost Van Dyke is one!

This pristine beach is perhaps the most spectacular in the BVI and is exactly what most people picture when dreaming about a Caribbean vacation.

There's a reef running nearly the full length of beach, just a few hundred feet offshore providing calm waters and protection for swimmers of all ages and abilities. A convenient break in the reef provides access for yachts to anchor safely. You can usually see a clear path, but refer to your charts or cruising guide for guidance.

Ivan Chinnery, a fixture in White Bay and all 'round great guy, is the proud owner of Ivan's Stress Free Bar and Restaurant. From top to bottom, Ivan's is decorated with shells collected off the beach!

After a terrible flood in November, 2003, Ivan showed me some pictures of extensive water damage his property sustained. When I commented that I supposed that day wasn't exactly "stress free" in White Bay, Jost Van Dyke! Ivan grinned broadly and said, "You got it sister." "In fact "stress" was free that day!"

Relaxed surroundings at Soggy Dollar Bar, Sandcastle, provides a wonderfully, laid back atmosphere while their personable staff supply warm and friendly service. BVI bar games are plentiful and getting that darned ring on the hook has often been my most daunting task for an entire day!

This little slice of paradise is absolutely gorgeous! Sun worshippers from all over the world have touted White Bay, Jost Van Dyke as the quintessential, "picture post card beach!" Next door to Soggy Dollar, is Gertrude's Restaurant & Boutique offering great painkillers, snacks and gifts.

There must be more bars and restaurants here than any other British Virgin Islands! One might expect to see a lot of tourists and visiting sailors bobbing and weaving their way along the beach ... but most manage to stay out of trouble!

Beside Gertrude's is Jewel's Snack Shack and it is one of the few places in Jost Van Dyke where you can get yourself a decent hot dog!

Left of Jewel's, is White Bay Suprette where you'll find sun tan lotion, film, batteries (you'll definitely want to take pictures), basic provisions, soda, beer, wine, liquor and snacks to top up your provisions.

Stop off at One Love Bar & Grill and meet one of Foxy Callwood's sons, Seddy. When you first see the restaurant, you may wonder if you've taken a wrong turn and ended up at Bomba's Shack on Tortola! However, on closer inspection, you'll note that whomever decorated One Love Grill is a little more of an "A" type personality than Bomba ... who seems to have a flair for ummmm .... asymmetrical design!
