The Destination
Jost Van Dyke, at about six square miles, is the smallest of the British Virgin Islands. But its lush volcanic hills, plus the surreal blue waters lapping its shores, pack serious punch. For proof, look no further than White Bay Villas, hailed by National Geographic Traveler in 2009 as not just a reflection of its environment but as a property that has helped define Jost Van Dyke. "With its panoramic view of the sea and ready access to the beach," says Frommer's, "this is a real discovery for couples or larger groups seeking a first-rate, secluded retreat."

The Digs
You'll receive a warm welcome from the on-site staff, who have been a highlight of many vacations. "They befriended us and included us in their day-to-day activities," say former guests. "I think that the staff really makes the place!" One-bedroom, one-bath Seaside Cottages feature fully-equipped kitchens, decks, and sitting rooms, while Hillside Villas have a bedroom and bathroom on each of two levels, affording both privacy and spaciousness. Three-bedroom, three-bath Plantation Villas spoil groups of six with decks off of each bedroom and are set amid papaya, banana, and mango trees. All lodging options offer spectacular views of White Bay.

The Diversions
Explore the island's six square miles of untainted mountains and powdery sand beaches on foot or in your Jeep, courtesy of Paradise Jeep Rental. If you prefer flippers to flip-flops, use your snorkel gear to meet the abundant marine life or dive into the Bubbly Pool, a natural Jacuzzi fed by foamy seas. A day of living life with no sense of time can work up an appetite—dine on mouthwatering barbecue at Ivan's Stress-Free Bar. For an after-dinner drink, take a 15-minute walk to Foxy's in Great Harbor and try the famous Firewater Rum. Live reggae and dancing keep the island up all night.

  • "Pure seclusion overlooking best beach on a laid-back island of just 180 residents. It's a 15-minute walk to Great Harbor for bakery [and] grocery. Indigenous fruit grown on grounds: papayas, mangoes, bananas. Stunning views wherever you turn."

  • "This was hands down one of the best experiences of our lives. Jost Van Dyke was gorgeous, the people at White Bay Villas were great and very helpful, and the deal showed us an extraordinary place we wouldn't have seen otherwise."
