BARS AND RESTAURANTS
FOXY’S BEACH BAR
Foxy Callwood opened his business on a cement slab in 1966 and has built a world-famous tiny empire that has evolved into a must-see destination for anyone who visits the BVI. In the last the 50 years, Foxy has added a micro brewery, an island BBQ buffet, a gift shop and his own rum label. He hosts wildly popular events on New Year’s Eve and Halloween, organizes regattas and has even built a wooden sailboat in the back yard. If you’re lucky, you can spot him (shoe-free, of course) strumming his guitar or telling off-color jokes at the bar.
SOGGY DOLLAR BAR
There’s no dock for the Soggy Dollar Bar. If you want to get to shore, you’re gonna get wet, and so is everything in your pockets. The Soggy Dollar Bar doesn’t mind — they will exchange your wet cash for the best Pain Killer you’ll ever drink and air the cash out on the clothes line behind the bar. With your drink in hand, grab a chair and feel the waves crash between your toes or try your best to win the ring game. Lots of day charter boats stop by and the bar can fill up in the blink of an eye. Sit back, relax, and enjoy the ever-changing vibe!
ONE LOVE BAR & GRILL
From the outside One Love looks like a sailboat salvage yard, covered with drift wood, old fenders and fishing nets. Inside, you’ll find the best lobster quesadilla in the Virgin Islands. If the proprietor, Seti, is in a good mood, you may be able to talk him into performing some magic tricks for you. We still haven’t figured out how he does them.
SIDNEY’S PEACE & LOVE
Famous for its fresh lobster lunch, the chef will let you pick out your own lobster from the catch that morning and enjoy it outside on the dock. There is no waiting at the serve-your-own honor bar.
Located on the remote east side of Jost Van Dyke, Foxy’s Taboo is the only structure past the dock and is usually a great place to get away from the crowds at White Bay. If you’re adventurous, this is the starting point for the short hike to the Bubbly Pool.
B-Line is one of the newer destinations on Little Jost Van Dyke. The friendly bar has a selection of games including a few corn hole sets, and if you can throw your beer cap into the jar behind the bar, it's free!
IVAN'S STRESS FREE BAR
Ivan's is a Jost Van Dyke institution that was recently remodeled and includes a rooftop deck and a campground. Watch out for the tire swing — it's faster than it looks!
BAYS, CAYS AND BEACHES
They say it's always sunny in White Bay, and we think it might be true. Even if you arrive during a brief spell of "liquid sunshine," there are more than enough places to grab a bite or sip on a tropical drink while you wait for the clouds to pass. There are a few boutique hotels, a handful of restaurants and a lot of vacationers looking to soak up the views.
Otherwise known as the island where the Corona commercials were filmed, tiny Sandy Spit has one palm tree and nothing else but sand. And it's perfect that way!
Great Harbour is home to Foxy's Bar & and Grill, a BVI customs and immigration office, the Jost Van Dyke dive shop and the ferry terminal.
Just a little bigger than Sandy Spit, this little cay is a picturesque location for swimming and lounging on the beach.
THE BUBBLY POOL
Waves crash over large volcanic rocks that circle a little white sand beach and produce a bubbling wave pool. It's a short hike from Foxy's Taboo, but well worth the trip.,
