Jost Van Dyke
Another British Virgin Island that is annually in the celebrity spotlight is Jost Van Dyke. Every year, Foxy’s Bar on Jost Van Dyke throws a massive New Years’ Eve Party. And the party continues to grow in popularity. As the demand has grown, celebrities have begun to frequent the island. Jost Van Dyke is consistently ranked in the Top 5 places to spend New Year’s Eve in the world! For an island that only has about 400 residents that is pretty amazing! For more information on the New Years Celebration click here. The island is also home to the famous Soggy Dollar Bar. A bar that is only accessible by boat. Jost is one of the most fun islands in the British Virgin Islands. And it is easy to spend a full day, or two, on the island.

Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition has just wrapped up shooting on this island and the Baths on Virgin Gorda. The just-finished shoot will be Halel Kalil second time on the cover, and pictures have been circulating on Social Media from those in the islands recently.
Scrub Island is misnamed 🙂 Not much Scrub about it now with the beautiful Marriott and the marina onshore.
Years ago, the “at the time” owners of the island wanted to change the name to Paradise Island. Somehow they thought it sounded better than Scrub Island. They were not allowed. There have been many upgrades on the islands centering on making the marina a destination spot and I LOVE sitting in the swimming pool at the Scrub Island resort.
