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.

I cannot put in to words my love for White Bay in Jost Van Dyke. We visited via The Jost Boat from St. Thomas and man I almost cried when it was time to leave. We spent the afternoon floating in the crystal clear waters with our adult beverages and catching some rays. Ultimate relaxation! I'll let my pictures do... More

Beautiful white sand beach with crystal clear water. The water temperature feels about the same as the air temperature (when I was there), so you can just walk into the water and not feel cold. There are plenty of little fish to watch if you like to snorkel. There is even a snorkel trail you can follow with markers that... More
