Yost Van Dyke Tourist: About Jost Van Dyke, British Virgin Islands
Jost Van Dyke is what you want, but so rarely get, from an island vacation. Here you'll have quiet days lounging in a hammock under the palm trees, and lively nights sharing stories with yachties about their travels around the islands.
There's not much to Jost Van Dyke (aka Yost Van Dyke). But that's kind of the point. There are only 4 square miles, just 150 residents and lots of beaches. There's little else to do but soak in the sun on the beaches.
And the beaches outnumber the hotels here, making it the least crowded island in the Caribbean, except when the occasional cruise ship ports.
The best beaches, and most of the accommodations and restaurants, are on the southern side at White Bay and Great Harbour, also where the islands two famous bars, Foxy’s and Soggy Dollar, are located.
And White Bay was noted by Travel + Leisure as one of the best beaches in the world.
If you are island hopping, Jost Van Dyke makes a for a great stop with it’s popular swim-up Soggy Dollar bar and friendly locals.
(FYI: Jost Van Dyke is sometimes incorrectly spelled as Yost Van Dyke or Jost Van Dike.)
