Hotel | "White Bay Campground"
From Great Harbor you can hike over the hill to White Bay, the best beach on Jost or catch a taxi usually waiting pier side when ferry arrives. The campground at White Bay is for the hardcore escapist, there''s not much nightlife here. Costs to camp run about $15/night, make a deal for a week or longer. If you plan to camp plan on bringing everything with you from Tortola. The two stores here may or may not have what you need. The campground has great sites located among the trees just steps from the beach.
The beach is picture perfect and the warm water affords some great snorkeling. I had never seen Tarpon underwater before and it was quite the rush when one of these giants darted by in scattering many schools of small fish. One of the best features of the campground was the use of a common kitchen area, refrigerator and dining room. The campers get together frequently to prepare meals together. The honor bar also located here stocks a variety of beers, rum and mixers to concoct your favorite libation. Just write it on your tab and pay up before you leave. All in all a great place to get away from it all! Ivan, the owner also rents some tiny cabins for about $40 per night but they can be quite stuffy and buggy.
