This is one of those places where if you can go, you go. It's a island that you can only get to on a smaller vessel or tour of some kind and then need to be tendered in or swim in I guess. It's been visited by actors, artists and everyone under the sun. It's on a island that is... More

small, shallow anchorage that is full of boats. Nice beach that is full of beach bars. Good for a breakfast or lunch stop.

White bay is a swim-to destination where you anchor a power boat within swimming distance. You can ferry it there, but by boat is best. The beach is filled with various bars and shops to fill you up with drinks and food, souvenirs and music. Very unique little place in a gorgeous location.

Spring break meets family fun meets old age hipster cruisers. White beach : there is room for us all you know. Pretty little bubbly spot on 30th (peak season ?) with most excellent people watching opportunities. Every shape and size. All tbe fun of the fair. Try the swing hoop game at the Soggy Dollar and your life will be... More

This is one of the prettiest beaches around...and lots of fun too. Boats moor off-shore and you swim in. There are just enough gentle waves to make it interesting and always a fun crowd. Even my kids thought it was one of the coolest places on earth.

No doubt that this is one of the most beautiful beaches EVER. tons of fun to be had here. We arrived by ferry from St. John, and rented lounge chairs for $10 each. the soggy Dollar lets you use theirs, but they don't recline. It's breathtaking here. But around 11 the boats start arriving and they come SO close to... More

First of all let me say that I have visited many beaches, this is by far my favorite place! Four years ago we spent the day here as a cruise port excursion from Tortola. I fell in love, and even cried when the day ended. So, when given the opportunity to spend the day here once again, I was thrilled.... More

We stayed on the Far East side of Jost which was very private and quiet. But white bay seems to be where the beach party is at...even more so than by Foxys. Great atmosphere. Family friendly for the most part

Clear water and sand...perfect for young kits and enjoying the water. There are some beach bar, some of them pretty crowded.
