We almost didn't go to Jost Van Dyke, but decided to take the ferry over on our last day in the BVIs. I am so glad we did. Jost is seriously beautiful and White Bay one of the most beautiful coves I have ever seen. More so, the liveliness of the bay, with Geraldines, the Soggy Dollar Bar, and others,... More

Stayed at White Bay Villas Seaside cottages and loved it. Bedroom opened onto deck with a beautiful breeze and view of the ocean. We snorkeled everyday and the weather and water was beautiful. Beautiful beach. All the beach restaurants were great and unique in their own way. Would go back.

This is a gorgeous island! We chartered a sailboat and bar hopped from the two bars on this island. It was great. Had the best frosty drink ever on this island. Its a must stop if you are heading to St Thomas!

Our charter captain took us by this beach. What a pretty place. It is well worth taking the time to go there if you are in the area.

Postcard setting. People of JVD welcomed us into their kitchens and took care of us as though we were family. Small island so everyone will know you if you stop to chat and ask about the Island.

With a 2 minute jeep ride from the villas, you're right on the beach and you never have to leave all day! Everything you need is right there with tons of little bars and restaurants that make it easy on you to pack light!

Loved the white sand beach, and all the fun beach bars along the beach. Favorite bars were Seddy's and of course Soggy Dollar!

We were at White Bay for a beach concert and it was an absolute blast!! Boats anchored in the crystal clear water and people simply having fun. We went back later in the week to enjoy the peacefulness and the beach. I recommend going earlier in the day before day trippers typically arrive.

This was without a doubt one of the most beautiful beaches I've ever been to. Even over Hawaii, Fiji, and many in between, the intimate setting and gorgeous scenery here makes this a must-stop destination. Got here by catamaran and my favorite bar and restaurant was Gertrude's (the Pina Colada is amazing). Literally paradise.
