Great beach

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

It is a shame that large catamarans and many other large vessels are allowed to anchor just 5 feet from the shore with their anchor lines stretching into the sands. You cannot walk the beach without jumping over lines. You cannot snorkel without weaving and bobbing around boats or paddle without getting knocked by the wake of boats. It is... More

Beautiful sand and fun beach bars make a terrific day! Don't get stuck at just one place, wander the beach and try several of the establishments to really get a feel for White's Bay.

We went to Saint John for a business meeting and stayed at the Westin resort. We had a good meeting and a great time there, but our travel agent suggested a boat trip to the British Virgin Islands after the meeting was over. From Saint John you take the boat and head to another country. You need a passport, have... More

If its on your bucket list move it to the top. If its not, then add it and move it to the top. Stay on the island overnight if you can - sunset is amazing and watching the boats come and go while sipping a cold Caribe or a Painkiller is a great way to spend an afternoon.
