Head to the British Virgin Island's (BVI) smallest island of Jost Van Dyke and relax on the beach, sip on refreshments at one of its famed beach bars, and more on this exciting beach excursion near Romney-Pier Park. Your tour includes four hours of fun and covers your round-trip ferry ride fee from your ship to explore the grand island of Jost Van Dyke (JVD), where you'll get a chance to catch scenic bay views, relax at famed beach bars like Rudy's and Soggy Dollar and soak up the sun on White Bay Beach. This beach excursion is perfect for beach-going families and friends alike.

To kick off your excursion, you'll depart your ship the Romney-Pier Park, Tortola cruise ship pier, and catch the ferry to head to the beautiful island of Jost Van Dyke (JVD). While JVD may be known as the British Virgin Islands' smallest main island, it's jam-packed with tons of activities to do. This three-square-mile island dates back to the mid-18th century and is believed to be named after a former pirate and Dutch privateer names Joost van Dyk. Today, JVD is known for its sandy white beaches, laid-back restaurants and bars and yacht anchorages like the Great Harbour-a sheltered bay that attracts beachgoers and yachters year-round, thanks to its busy port and beach dotted with famed bars like Foxy's bar.

Once you set foot on the island, you'll get a chance to head to White Bay where you will have time to soak up the sun and relax on the white powdery sands of White Bay Beach, voted as one of the world's top ten beaches to visit. Enjoy refreshments at nearby popular bars like the iconic Soggy Dollar on White Bay Beach or head to Great Harbour to sample local delights at Rudy's and Foxy's beach bars, before returning to your port.

From catching picturesque bay views while sipping on refreshments from award-winning bars to snorkeling along a reef, this beach tour offers much to explore! Sign up for this exciting JVD beach excursion today and experience a relaxing time in the British Virgin Islands.

We had an awesome time on our Jost Van Dyke excursion! It wasn’t long enough though!! Staff was friendly and everything ran smoothly. The Soggy Dollar bar was so much fun and the food and drinks were awesome. Best chicken I’ve ever had!

Jost Van Dyke/Tortola BVI
June 29, 2023
This was the BEST excursion and the most gorgeous beach I have ever seen!!! Hendo’s Hideout had good food and strong drinks. I’d love to vacation in the thatched roof huts one day, too. You will NOT be disappointed in this excursion…except when you have to leave!

June 28, 2023
Jost Van Dyke Escape was fantastic from beginning to end. Everyone employee was polite and professional. I wish this was a longer excursion. I didn't want it to end! Special thanks to our tour guide, our water taxi employees and our tram drivers. Oh, the bar tenders were great too! Thanks for some great memories!

What an AMAZING Beach
June 22, 2023
My only complaint about this excursion was it was TOO SHORT! The beach was PHENOMINAL.. our tour host was lovely. He was so professional, helpful, friendly, and informative! It was very easy to connect with the tour once we exited the pier that morning and easy to find the group. For our 7 day cruise on NCL, this was our absolute favorite stop and favorite excursion. We have rebooked another cruise for next year and plan to go back to Tortola and hope this excursion is still on the schedule b/c we will definitely go!! Just make it a longer stay on the beach!!!

LOVED our day at Jost Van Dyke
April 06, 2023
We had a wonderful time at beautiful Jost Van Dyke playing in the ocean and drinking Painkillers at the Soggy Dollar. I just wish it could have been longer, but our cruise ship had to leave at 2pm. We will definitely go back whenever we are in the BVI again.
