Jost Van Dyke and Sandy Spit

At roughly 8 square km, Jost Van Dyke is the smallest of the four main islands of the British Virgin Islands. Like many of the neighboring islands, it is volcanic in origin and mountainous with Majohnny Hill the highest point on the island at 321 meters (1054 ft).

Jost van Dyke is known for it’s laid-back atmosphere, beautiful white-sand beaches and local entertainment – it is a very popular destination for anyone staying in Tortola, with its beautiful white sand beaches, turquoise water and old-fashioned charm. It is the perfect place to “lime” and chill out Caribbean style. Neighbouring Little Jost Van Dyke, which is now uninhabited, was the birthplace of Dr John Lettsome, founder of the London Medical Society.

The country music video for Kenny Chesney‘s 2002 recording “No Shoes, No Shirt, No Problems” was filmed on and around Jost Van Dyke. Included in the video were several scenes at One Love Bar and Ivan’s Stress-Free Bar where it is common for patrons to mix their own drinks and leave their payment in the register. Chesney also references Jost Van Dyke in his song “Somewhere in The Sun” from his album Be as You Are (Songs from an Old Blue Chair).
