One of the most popular islands to visit in the British Virgin Islands is Jost van Dyke. This island is well known for the Soggy Dollar Bar as well as a host of other attractions. Jost Van Dyke is full of picturesque white sand beaches, and remote beach bars and restaurants. Foxy’s on Jost van Dyke is known for it’s New Years Eve party and don’t forget about the (in)famous “Painkiller” cocktail from the Soggy Dollar. Whether you’re looking for some afternoon cocktails or a relaxing day on the beach, this island has you covered.
White Bay, Home of Soggy Dollar Bar
Home of the world famous “Painkiller,” Soggy Dollar is located on White Bay and is known for it’s weekend crowds and is a must-see on your charter. White Bay also has a few other great bars and restaurants including One Love, serving delicious lobster quesadillas, and Gertrude’s which is known for their West Indian Roti.
Foxy’s is world renowned for one of the biggest New Years Eve parties around. Thousands of people converge on the island to ring in the New Year but on any other day, you’ll find a very quiet little beach bar tucked away in the corner. If you’re lucky and have an encounter with “Foxy,” be sure to ask him to sing you a rhyme! Just down the beach from Foxy’s features a few other small bars and restaurants.
One bay to the east of Great Harbor and Foxy’s, you can find a little hideaway called Sidney’s Peace and Love. If you’re looking for a real local spot this is your place. Sidney’s “pour your own” bar gives you the freedom to enjoy your drinks as strong as you’d like. For lunch, guests can choose their own signature lobster from the large tank underneath the dock. Sydney’s is ideal for those that want to get off the beaten path and get a real taste for life on a remote Caribbean island.
Sandy Cay & Sandy Spit
Much as their titles suggest, Sandy Cay and Sandy Spit are two tiny remote islands off the southeast coast of Jost Van Dyke. A popular spot to set an anchor and frolick on the deserted beach, Sandy Cay and Sandy Spit are a great place to capture pictures that will last a lifetime. Most of the time, you’ll be the only ones there making it feel like your own private island. These islands are uninhabited and you can walk around the entire circumference in just a few minutes. These are high on our list of most beautiful, relaxing destinations.
