Our Windstar cruise ship docked at Great Harbour. My wife and I taxied over to White Bay for $5 per person. Alternatively, we could have walked there in about 20 minutes. The beach is pretty much ideal: white sand, clear and calm water. Most visitors...More

Beautiful beach, white sand and turquoise water on a beautifully breezy day. Lots of catamarans. You gotta go

The color combination of the sand and water made this one of the most beautiful beaches I've seen. Perhaps the string of bar after bar competing for your buck helps. They were all great and had something different to offer, food or drink. People everywhere...More

The white sand, the most beautiful blue water. This is exactly what you dream of when dreaming of your next beach vacation. The people, restaurants, and beach experience is one of a kind. You’ll be hooked. I wish I was there tonight.

We just made a return trip to Jost in August 2018. Fearing the worst, we weren't sure what to expect, but White Bay has been mostly restored to it's pristine glory after being ravaged by 2 Cat 5 Hurricanes less than 1 year ago. New...More

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.

How much time in Tortola? You can hire Foxy's Travel Service to pick you up , bring you to Jost and enjoy a meal and drinks and then return you to your cruise. An 8 hour stop won't make it worthwhile.

I think you can get right up on the beach down a couple hundred yards.
