Even Kenny Chesney, sometimes a St. Johnian, has to get off "the rock," and Jost Van Dyke is one of his choices, as he sang in "Somewhere in the Sun." Lots of vacationers staying at Caneel or renting villas on island also combine a day of snorkeling/diving and travel to enjoy the island’s White’s Bay and to Foxy’s famous bar/’restaurant.
The New York Times has discovered it, too.
They call Jost "the barefoot island" for its laid back atmosphere, beautiful beaches and clear water. Getting there is easy. There are several places on island to make arrangements, including Cruz Bay Waterports‘ at the Weston or www.divest john.com, and Low Key Waterspouts at Wharf side Village and www.divulge.com. Hint: you’ll need a passport because Jost is a British Virgin Island.
