White Bay, Jost Van Dyke, BVI

White Bay, Jost Van Dyke, has the Beach Beach in the World!  (no exaggeration)
Jost Van Dyke has several places to visit and to anchor for the night.  By far, the most beautiful on the island (and perhaps all the BVI) is White Bay.  Two amazing beaches stretch for miles separated by a small rocky prominence.  Sailboats come and go.  Sections of the beach are empty, virgin.  Others have lively bars and restaurants.  Here you can sink your toes in the sand and know that there is no better place in the world. 

From a photography standpoint, the surrounding green hills and colorful boats are like icing on the cake.  These provide more photo subjects to mix into the beautiful beach scene.  In the photo above, I tried to capture these elements.  I crouched low on the sand and photographed some incoming waves.  In one corner I positioned the lovely red sailboat and in the other I included some palm trees:  Snapshot of paradise!

High Above White Bay, Sailboats and the BVI stretch out in the distance.
If you want a workout, there is a road that climbs above White Bay and onto a high ridge.  You'll see a few goats along the way to the top.  Up above, you can get a different perspective on White Bay and the BVI in general by seeing far into the distance.  Sailboats and green islands are in every direction.
