Easily one of the most beautiful beaches in the islands. We stayed here our last night of our charter. I didn’t want to leave. Seriously we tried to work an extra day out. But... they were booked.... We will be back for sure

Great beach if you like bars and other people around. Sand is soft and clean. Lots of choice of bars for drink and lunch.

This is by far the whitest sand and just all around best beach ever. My mom even cries every time we leave. The clearest water ever and you can talk to anyone there.

White Bay is possibly the most beautiful beach in the BVI. The hurricanes did a great deal of damage but the beach and beach bars are coming back strong. Dozens of palm trees have been planted to replace the ones lost in Irma and Maria....More

This is a great harbor with one of the best beaches in the Caribbean. If you are in Jost Van Dyke you need to spend an afternoon on the beach at White Bay. Cruisers, it is more exposed than Great Harbor, so be careful spending...More

Absolutely gorgeous harbor and beach just around the corner from Great Harbor. Idyllic and beautiful and one of my favorite places that we stayed on a recent charter. Short swim or dinghy ride to Hendos or Soggy Dollar Bar.

We visited on a charter to hang at the beach bars and restaurants. Did not think we would like the beach that much as it was crowded with boats, but when the sun came out the swimming was awesome. Kids loved it, especially the float...More

White Bay is a gentle curve, basically a welcoming smile, on the south face of Jost Van Dyke. White sugar sand, turquoise water and palm trees. From the beach you can look out to St John and Tortola. One of the best beaches in the...More

St. Thomas Boat Rental - we were a family of four and took a smaller vessel. They have boats to handle larger groups and will pick-up at any of the USVI or BVI if memory serves correctly.
