Family Activities:

Jost Van Dyke


After a 25-minute ferry ride from Tortola, you land on White Bay Beach, Jost Van Dyke. Popular with yacht owners, White Bay lures boaters with its calm waters, hammock-lined, white-sand beach and its eatery, the Soggy Dollar Bar, which serves conch fritters, sandwiches, grilled cheese and other casual fare.

Outfitters offer snorkeling, scuba-diving and all-terrain vehicle outings that venture up — and sometimes straight down — the dirt paths of the island’s hilly center. The ATV tour can be especially demanding.
