Pulling in by boat saw a beautiful bay with a great beach! Took the dinghy ashore to find the Soggy Dollar Bar. We had a terrific time. Cold drinks - we did not eat.

Great day stop. Glistening beach. Avoid weekends as locals cram the anchorage and also holidays. Wouldn't advise anchoring overnight as southern swells might make for a long night.

This is paradise. Crystal clear water, great bars and food. So relaxing. It does get crowded in the afternoon but they all go away and morning and evening are absolutely wonderful.

Great beach, fun places to eat, drink, and socialize, and lots of sea life to observe while snorkeling.

It is one of the best beaches in the world. The only down side is that sometimes in the early afternoon you have to put up with a bunch of drunks on day sail trips from St. Thomas.

Loved our time at White Bay. Amazing sand, water and atmosphere. The BVI vibe was finally found after a few days sailing. Definitely a place to chill, enjoy the sun and chew the fat with fellow sailors.

I've been lucky enough to travel a bit, including many islands. By far White Bay in Jost Van Dyke is my favorite place to be! It is my hearts home and as much as I'd like to keep it a little secret (although words getting...More

We stayed at White Bay Villas on Jost Van Dyke for one week in April. Our view of White Bay was absolutely beautiful. We watched boats go in and out all day in the beautiful blue water. It was a very relaxing visit, we enjoyed...More
