Remarkable beach and setting. Expensive to get there if you don't have a boat but you can't beat the atmosphere here!

From Ivan's to Gertrudes, to Seddy's to Hendo's and Soggy Dollar Bar, White Bay, JVD is by far the best beach in the Caribbean. I definitely recommend a stop at White Bay if you can.

There aren't enough words to describe this beautiful place and the wonderful people. We spent a week in White Bay at the Pink House Oleander and we didn't want to leave. This is a perfect island paradise.

3-4 days of R&R here will cure what ails you. More than that and you’ll need to break it up with a boating or other excursion as there is very little to do here beyond a few beach bars, swim, tan, read and nap. The...More

The fees are for entering/exiting BVI. Once you pay the entry fee you are free to go to any BVI island. You will then have to pay the exit fee when leaving BVI.

It is dead center on the beach next to Hendo's. Not hard to find at all. Yes, I was there, if your suggesting I wasn't. We also had a beer at One Love at the opposite end of the beach. There are several places there. We... More
