White Bay Villas: Getting to White Bay Villas on Jost Van Dyke
Traveling to Jost Van Dyke is very easy. Major U.S. Airlines fly into St. Thomas from a number of U.S. cities. Our recommendation for people coming from the U.S. is to fly directly into St. Thomas.
It is best to take the earliest flight out of your departure city and return on a late afternoon flight out of your arrival city.

We recommend pricing both upon booking.

If the ferry isn’t running to West End, you will need to take the ferry to Roadtown and transit via cab to the West end to pick up the ferry to JVD. Best to contact Bonnie about current schedules.

Getting around on Jost Van Dyke:
On Jost Van Dyke, there are three bays, all facing south, and White Bay, where we are located, is the western most and least inhabited. Serenity and sunsets! “White Bay was named by Conde Naste Traveler Magazine as “one of the 10 best beaches in the world”! Great Harbor, just a 15 minute walk, is the “metropolis” of the island and has a Customs House, ferry dock and 5 restaurants, “Foxy’s” being the most famous. Information about transportation is available in your villa.
Thought I’d let you know what a fabulous and PERFECT stay we had at White Bay Villas! Couldn’t have been more wonderful, and just the memories we wanted for our 10th anniversary. Thank you for making all the arrangements, etc. Taxi and water taxi were worth every cent, and made the trip going down so enjoyable and easy. We would recommend White Bay Villas to anyone, and will surely be back ourselves.
