Clear blue water!

I've seen beautiful beaches before but the water at White Bay was extraordinary. Can't wait to go back again!

I love white bay, by far my fav. Beach out of all of the British and U.S. Virgin Islands! The sand is silky soft and the water is beautifully clear/blue. It felt like I was swimming in bath water. It was so peaceful and relaxing! There is no dock so you have to swim to shore but it is a... More

My family and I had an amazing time at White Bay on Jost Van Dyke. We came over by boat from Tortola and landed in paradise. The most beautiful beach and water. Can't wait to go back!!

They have the most beautiful water and it is so calm and clear that one never wants to get out. It is warm on most days but if you have a little rain it is a little cooler but still wonderful to swim in.

In my opinion, White Bay is one of the nicest beaches in the Virgin Islands. Most of the time it is quiet and the white sandy beach is excellent. Water is perfect.

Moored here one day on our sailing trip around the BVI. One of the most gorgeous beaches I've seen. Great snorkeling and great little beach bars.

The beach is pristine and the people were so much fun! Be sure to shop for souvenirs in their store. Great drinks and music provided by Gertrude's, another beach bar where you make your own drink for $10.

We stopped at Jost Van Dyke's, White Bay to experience the world famous Soggy Dollar Bar and One Love. We were not disappointed. It was a rainy Wednesday, but the drinks and warm sea air kept us happy all day. Between rain showers we walked back and forth between SDB and OL. Pain Killers and Nilla Villa were the favorites...

Arrived by boat and spent the afternoon anchored just off shore. Hung out at Soggy Dollar and totally enjoyed the scenery. It rained, and we didn't even care. A breathe taking stop not tobe missed while in the waters of the BVI. NOTE: the customs rules changed effective the day we arrived requiring ALL parties on board to appear in... More
