Visit Jost Van Dyke
Just a short ride by boat from St Thomas, St John, and Tortola lies the famed island of Jost Van Dyke. Reportedly named for an eighteenth century pirate who hid out with his treasure in the bays of the island, Jost Van Dyke today draws thousands of day trippers annually. And most who visit this tiny pirate island do so to belly up to one of the island's many famous bars. Sailors and sunseekers near and far know the bars of Jost Van Dyke are the stuff of lore. The mere mention these famed BVI watering holes- Foxy's, Soggy Dollar, One Love, Ivan's- is enough to make you want to book plane tickets to the BVI. Luckily, for USVI visitors, it is easy to take day trip/ boat trip to Jost Van Dyke.
When arriving at Jost Van Dyke, USVI visitors can clear customs in Great Harbour, if they did not first do so on Tortola. Great Harbour is a large natural harbor which offers ample overnight mooring balls for people visiting on their own boats, shore services like ice and fuel, and several popular bars and restaurants. In addition to dozens of charter boats moored in Great Harbour, visitors will also encounter Foxy's, one of the Virgin Island's hottest watering holes. After a long day of snorkeling and walking on picture-perfect beaches, you'll have worked up an appetite, and there's no better way to fill your belly than with the authentic BBQ at Foxy's in Great Harbour. Live music- perhaps even by Foxy Callwood himself- and new friends' laughter fill the air as you dance the night away.
One bay west of Great Harbour, is Jost Van Dyke's most famous beach: White Bay. Frequently considered to be one of the best beaches in the Caribbean, White Bay beach is home to Soggy Dollar, Ivan's Stress Free, and One Love, and is one of the most popular destinations for day charter boats coming from both St Thomas and St John. The crescent shaped, powder-like white sand beach is lightly shaded with palms that sway in the breeze, and sailors' inflatable dinghies dot the shoreline. Whether going for a dip in the swimming-pool blue waters, soaking up the sun in beach chair, or drifting off in a hammock, you'll be convinced you found paradise at White Bay.
Just a short distance from White Bay lay the Bubbly Pools and Foxy's Taboo. This Foxy's is owned and operated by the daughter of Foxy Callwood, and is a great place to stop for a friendly and authentic, but less crowded, lunch. Place your order at Foxy's Taboo, then enjoy the leisurely 15 minute walk to nature's natural jacuzzi at the Bubbly Pools. When the swell is up and a wave comes in, it's like someone turned on the jets in a hot tub!
