White Bay will always be a magnificent place, regardless of the many people who come here for drinks in the day, then leave in the afternoon. Just a great place where everyone is smiling and having fun. WHITE WHITE SAND, and crystal clear water, lots of beach bars, and good times: that's what you always get in White Bay!

We chartered from Tortola to Jost as a cruise stop excursion. Had a wonderful beach day on what I believe is the most beautiful place I have ever been in the Caribbean. A stop at Soggy Dollar for a painkiller is a must and get the grilled cheese and conch as well. So yummy.

OMG talk about the perfect beach, bay and bars! We spent 5 days here and loved every minute of it. Will definitely be back! Amen to the Soggy Dollar and their famous Pain Killers. Go for a SCUBA dive on the White Bay wall as well. It has some amazing sites.

We visited all the great beaches in our 3 weeks around the US and British Virgin Islands, but White Bay is just at another level! If you love crystal clear 85 degree water with the best beach bar in the world only a few steps away, this is for you!

We were fortunate enough to visit White Bay while on an excursion with Norwegian Cruise Line. The power catamaran, Rebel Yell, transported us from Tortola to Jost Van Dyke. The trip over and back on the Rebel Yell was very pleasant and we highly recommend their service to get to Jost Van Dyke. White Bay was one of the most... More

White Bay is a spectacular white sand beach with beautiful blue waters. The bag is huge with bars at either end. At one end is Ivan's Stress Free Bar, which is quiet and relaxing. At the other is Soggy Dollar Bar and One Love and of course all the tourists. We went to the bars of course and had drinks... More

The bay was beautiful, but there were too many boats tied to the beach to enjoy a nice, quiet swim or even a walk along the beach without tripping on the ropes. Somewhat disappointed.

We went two times to white bay in our little boat because we believe the the beach is unreal. Calm waters, cristal clear with white soft sand made our afternoon a breathless experience. Birds eating bread from your hand, small fish wondering between your legs made us felt out of this word.
