White Bay, Jost Van Dyke

British Virgin Islands

Great Harbor, a deep, softly sweeping indentation on the south side of the island, treats visitors to an eyeful of tropical loveliness and a host of amenities. Lined by rustic, character-filled shops and eateries, the harbor-front beach offers a real feel for the Caribbean. Standbys like Christine’s Bakery (serving fresh breads and sticky buns) and Foxy’s (one of the best-known beach bars in the Caribbean) are so humble that they might be overlooked by the uninitiated passerby.
