BVI anchorages - Jost van Dyke - little harbour

Moorings are plentiful and Little Harbour is a good alternative on a sailing vacation to the anchoring antics that go on in Great Harbour, where there are no moorings available. If Foxy's calling is too strong, you can always taxi over to Great Harbour, safe in the knowledge that your boat is secure to a mooring. Little Harbour also offers water, fuel and ice at the newly constructed pier beside Sidney's Peace and Love.

Jost Van Dyke, or Jost, as the locals call it is about four miles long and has just fewer than two hundred permanent residents. It is also the home to many famous hot spots like Foxy's.

Little Harbor is home to a place called "Sidney's Peace and Love". It is rustic and run by locals. It has a great atmosphere, and the folks that run the place couldn't be friendlier. Thousands of donated T-shirts line the ceiling. On some evenings Sidney fires up the grill and makes bar BQ. Sidney's also features an honor bar, where you make your own drinks and mark down a record for the bill. There is a small gift shop at the same place, and another restaurant called Harris's Place.
