Jost van Dyke Vacation Rentals AccommodationVillas and Apartments to Rent, Holiday Homes on Jost van Dyke
Named after a former pirate, Jost van Dyke is the smallest of the of the 4 main sun drenched islands that make up the exclusive British Virgin Islands with just 300 residents.
Away from the gorgeous beaches such as Great Harbour, Little Harbour and White Bay, Jost van Dyke, is a fairly quiet and refined holiday resort where people come to relax and escape the fast paced City life.
Having said this, there is plenty going on from fabulous beach parties, lively bars such as the Soggy Dollar and excellent restaurants with the favourite local dishes being lobster, BBQ grilled fish and conch stew.
The island also has lush forests to hike around and natural wonders such as the East End’s natural sea-formed Jacuzzi - superb fun!
