Jost Van Dyke, British Virgin Islands Vacation Rentals

Jost Van Dyke is a small island, one of 60 islands that make up the British Virgin Islands in the Caribbean. It is four miles long and three miles wide and has three protected harbor areas. Locals like to tell visitors staying at Jost Van Dyke vacation rentals that the island is named after a Dutch pirate. Tourists can get to the island by boat or ferry and then they can explore the ruins of an old sugar mill or go hiking on the many trails on the island. Visitors who stay at Jost Van Dyke beach rentals can choose to just relax on the beach and maybe visit Foxy's Bar, which distills its own rum and brews its own beer. And behind the bar, local residents are building a replica of a Tortola sloop, the traditional sailing ship used for commerce in the islands. Guests of Jost Van Dyke vacation homes often take a boat to the uninhabited islands of Great Tobago and Little Tobago, which have large numbers of Frigate Birds, terns and pelicans. They also try their hand at scuba diving since it is so excellent in this part of the Caribbean. Food is fun on Jost Van Dyke, and everyone agrees that the food at Foxy's is great too.
