The Party Paradise
Jost Van Dyke—the fourth largest British Virgin Island—is approximately three square miles and lies five miles northwest of Tortola. Jost Van Dyke is internationally famous for Foxy’s Old Year’s Night (a New Year’s Eve party) in Great Harbour—often voted one of the best parties in the world. White Bay is a popular spot for Sunday revellers from neighbouring islands. The Bubbly Pool near Diamond Cay is a refreshing reward after a short hike.
In 2008, the island’s population was estimated at 307 people. Jost Van Dyke also contains the popular snorkelling spots of Little Jost Van Dyke, Sandy Cay, Green Cay and the miniature Sandy Spit. Jost Van Dyke is an island concerned with conservation; the Jost Van Dyke Preservation Society serves to protect the history, wildlife, culture and environment of its small archipelago.
